The next Hitman Elusive target will go live this Wednesday , June 8. Elusive targets are limited time missions that players only have one shot at completing. The third elusive target will be available from 6 PM PST / 9 PM EST Wednesday.
This is the third Hitman Elusive target called the Prince, and the mission will take place in Sapienza, the site of Hitman second episode. You will need to own the second episode in order to take and complete the challenge, for which players will only have 72 hours.
The elusive targets are tough, they do not show up on the map or in instinct mode. Players will have only one shot to take them out, if failed or detected the target will flee the area, and there are no do-overs.
According to the developers:
An Elusive Target is the closest thing to the Hitman fantasy that we’ve ever created. Each one is a custom-created character with their own backstory and their own unique reason for being in that location. We call them Elusive Targets because they are added to an existing location for a limited time in real-time and you’ll only have one chance to take them down.
Diana will provide you with necessary information to track the elusive target, given that these targets won’t appear on map this intel is of utmost significance. Players will need to explore, find the target, study their movement and come up with a plan to take them out.
The first Hitman elusive target was Sergei Larin, or “The Forger”, and only 53 % players were successful to eliminate him, and only 9.9% players got the Silent Assassins rating.
According to the states only 6 minutes took for the first player to take him out and disappear, while it took 34 minutes for the first Silent Assassin.
