Modified Hitman: Contracts logo

Hitman (usually stylized "HITMAN™") is a group of stealth/shooter combo video games created by IO-Interactive, and published by Square Enix Europe (formerly Eidos Interactive). The series is based around the life and experiences of a genetically enhanced contract killer named 47, who is genetically superior to any man, or woman, and can execute any mission with skill.

Game Similarities

  • Finale: At the end of each game, Agent 47 is in some sort of dangerous scenario in which he's up against many enemies, which calls for less traditional stealth and more shooting.
  • Gameplay: The player, while encouraged to use stealth, can execute the mission in a variety of ways, making Hitman one of the most diverse story line-sandbox games to the community.
  • Targets: Agent 47's targets are almost never innocent civilians. They are usually crime lords, terrorists, and corrupt officials. Agent 47 is frequently employed by politicians, especially by the United Nations.
  • Overlying Theme: All the games take a very dark tone, using elements of horror and dark comedy. Agent 47's ambiguous religious and moral views became a huge theme starting with Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. All of Agent 47's targets commit dark sins, usually beyond the greed and wrath common in organized crime into sexual and social depravity. The consistent moral of each game is that anyone who leads a life of sin can never find sanctuary - nor can Agent 47, trapped in sin and the only way of life he knows.
  • Locations: Agent 47 lived and worked most of his life in Europe, but frequently travels across the world. In Hitman: Blood Money, he permanently moves to the United States.

Characters

Agent 47 (voiced by David Bateson) is an assassin for hire whose intelligence and exceptional skills make him a "Silent Assassin".

Diana Burnwood (originally voiced by Vivienne McKee from Hitman: Codename 47 to Hitman: Blood Money, Marsha Thomason in Hitman: Absolution, and later by Jane Perry in HITMAN™) is Agent 47's adviser and informant. Both Burnwood and Agent 47 work for a mysterious company called the International Contract Agency, and constantly gives Agent 47 advice and intelligence for his mission.
