Hitman 3 has some truly fantastic game modes. You can just steamroll the campaign and be done with it, or you could go through every destination and get every challenge and achievement so that you have complete mastery of them all. You could then take on and master all of the Escalations, doing much the same with them, but that’s all quite intense. You’ve really got to be thinking about what you’re doing if you want to get 100% in this game and reach something like a platinum trophy for it. Or, if you just need to chillout, you could try out Contracts mode.
Contracts mode is a game mode in which you can play Contracts created by other players, or make your own. Making your own is very relaxing. All you have to do is enter a location, walk around a bit, maybe change your disguise, kill someone, and leave. That’s how you set a contract. You can then make it as difficult or easy as you want. There’s nothing to it. Just make sure that you’re having a good time while not putting too much stress on yourself, and you should have a very chilled out time while doing this.
If creating isn’t your thing, then you could just as easily work your way through all the Contracts that others have made. These are all completely different to the main game, and they’ve got some of the best content that you could hope for. These assassinations are bolder and more complicated because they’re created by another player. They’re not interested in holding your hand or making life easy for you, they want it to be as difficult as it could possibly be.
However, there are also incredibly easy Contracts. If you find the act of working out a Contract relaxing, then go for a harder one. If however, you want to have a really relaxed time playing around with a Contract that’s easy, then look for the slower ones. This is a really easy way to calm down at the end of a stressful day. It’s also brilliant for making yourself feel like a hot new assassin when you nail a target in the head with a knife.
