Hitman 3: Contracts is an assassin simulator game developed by IO Interactive. It is a third installment in the Hitman series.
Bleeding out Agent 47 tumbles into one of the rooms in an unknown Paris hotel. He passes out and starts hallucinating about his previous contracts. Each of these memories is a single mission that has to be completed by the player.
In contrast to the previous game, the detection can be avoided much more easily. The enemies barely notice the Hitman dressed in someone else's clothing. They can still notice you if you stand in front of a guard for too long or openly carry a knife. Players have a lot of options for killing their target. Environmental kills are now much more common. For example, in one of the missions, the player has to eliminate a target using a pillow.
The game now features a much more gritty tone. It usually takes place in foggy, rainy or snowy environments. There are many locations in a game ranging from a gothic manor to a meat processing plant where a BDSM party is held. 7 of the game's 12 levels are remakes of Hitman: Codename 47.
