In this game, you are a hitman, an assassin who eliminates targets for anyone paying the right amount.
Whether your skill is stealth, approaching your enemies unseen, firing a bullet from a neighbouring rooftop, hacking automated defences or demolishing a building to eliminate everyone inside, you are always in demand. With the protection of the Guild, you need not fear retribution once you escape the scene of the crime – the scrubbers have your back. Every trace of you, every piece of camera footage, everyone who will testify that you were there will vanish without a trace.
All that falls to you is the kill itself and, in that, you’re an expert.
Era: Hitman is a game that gives you the best of both worlds: reality-bending superpowers and the mandate to use them however you like as long as you succeed in your mission!
Inspired by video game titles such as Hitman and Assassin’s Creed, this game places you in a modern setting where your mission is to eliminate your target by whatever means necessary.
Era: Hitman offers the chance to integrate superpowers into an otherwise modern assassination setting.
It is designed to be similar to the harder difficulty levels of games like the Hitman series, meaning the weapons are deadly and storming buildings with guns blazing is not always the best solution.
Instead, it encourages thinking around the problem and coming up with an ingenious solution, as an unexpected guard identifying the party could mean the loss of a teammate!
When you add the kinetic powers in the game to that, it makes for a truly dangerous environment, which will take wits and skill to survive!
