Pun not intended. But the latest Hitman 3 Elusive Target is live, and players will have until May the 3rd to kill The Politician. The Politician: Elusive Target can be found at Hawke’s Bay, which some of you might remember as the introductory map from the previous game, Hitman 2. But who’s The Politician? Let’s have a closer look.
The Politician Elusive Target, aka Dame Barbara Elizabeth Keating, is a tad obsessed with the thoughts of assassins and enemies around the world coming for her head – I wonder why? – hence she’s always accompanied by a body double whose job consists in taking the hit for her.
In case you don’t remember, she was also a minor antagonist in Hitman 2.
Pay attention to the little details
If you take down the body double instead of The Politician Elusive Target, you won’t lose the mission, but you will lose your Silent Assassin rating. Make sure your aim is on the right person… On the outside, they might look identical. But for example, are there any differences between their behaviors?
The Hawke’s Bay map and The Politician: Elusive Target is available as part of the Hitman 3 Free Starter Pack for a limited time. It will temporarily be free real estate for any players that would like to join and try the game out before committing to the full version.
As this is Dame Barbara Elizabeth Keating’s second appearance in the franchise, we may not be able to see her coming around for the third time – so this is your chance to join and give it a try. Being built in a slightly different way compared to the old school missions, The Politician: Elusive Target is also the perfect occasion for anyone that is not familiar with the Hitman saga to have a taste of Agent 47’s adventures.
Not much of a beachgoer? Then maybe you should try Dubai. Like Hawke’s Bay, Dubai is temporarily included in the new Hitman 3 Free Starter Pack, where you can try out a sampler of 47’s greatest hits.
