Hitman: Blood Money

Hitman: Blood Money, developed by IO Interactive and published by Eidos Interactive, is a stealth video game released for the PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox and Xbox 360. This single-player only game is the fourth installment in the Hitman series. Blood Money has several new features not found in the Hitman games. These include a new game engine, Glacier, responsible for the improved graphics (most notably the character animations). It also introduces the ability to use a non-player character (NPC) as a shield as well as an improvement in the climbing and unarmed combat systems.

In Blood Money, the player controls Agent 47, a professional hitman. Throughout the game, the player will be sent to carry out various assassination contracts on one or more people. Unlike the previous three Hitman games, some of the contract killings are performed in areas with civilians. As Agent 47, the player can use improvised weapons that can be found in the game’s environment. These weapons range from common tools like nail guns and screwdrivers to other items like kitchen utensils and hedge cutters. Some of the player’s regular weapons and other equipment can also be upgraded.

Although the player can use any method he chooses to perform the hit, the game will reward stealth and penalize extreme violence. This new reward/penalty system, called “Notoriety,” will even penalize the player for making too much “noise.” If Agent 47 is not stealthy enough in each mission, his notoriety increases, which will make him more recognizable to NPCs. Each mission will have a specific method to make the target’s death appear to be an accident.

At the end of a successful assassination, a newspaper article will be shown reporting on the killing. The title of the articles is also the means to inform the player of his mission rating, with the highest achievable being “SIlent Assassin.”
