IO Interactive and Square Enix have released an 18-minute video that shows off Hitman: Absolution's new contracts mode, from start to bloody finish.

The new walkthrough is an in-depth look at the mode, showing everything from picking a target to challenging a friend to beat your score. The concept is simple: Stalk through one of the game's levels, select an assassination target among the various NPCs, and take them out. You'll automatically get a score based on how efficient you were, whether you were detected, the number of targets you took out, and more. From there, other players can try to duplicate your assassination and earn a higher score in the process. Humiliation is delivered, rivalries are fueled, and the world continues to fear Agent 47 and his terrifying bar code.

Look for the game November 20.
