Start your weekend off the right way with 18 minutes of mindless assassinations in this brand new Hitman: Absolution playthrough video from Square Enix.

The video features 18 minutes of gameplay footage taken from the game’s Contracts multiplayer mode, complete with commentary from game director Tore Blystad and community team member Travis Barbour. Contracts allows players to create their own custom assassination contracts and then task other players with completing them. Players get to choose the level, number or targets, weapons, and number of witnesses.

The mode is also asynchronous meaning that players can challenge friends even if they are offline at the time. IO Interactive has also promised to set-up its own Contracts tasks each week for players to complete and earn bonuses from. You can check out the video below.

Hitman: Absolution is scheduled to release November 20 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

What do you think of the mode? Let us know in the comments below.
