Hitman's next Elusive Target revealed ... kinda

Who and where is TBD.

4

Agent 47 has just started his latest set of missions in the recently released Bangkok DLC, so it is apparently time for a new Elusive Target. The good news: We have dates for you to prepare. The bad news: The location and target appears to have been hacked.

Not really in the real world, but the target information has been obscured with a lot of computer code overlaying a seated silhouetted image. So we can assume that the target is good with computers, or has a team that is. The official Twitter account wasn't much help: -Elusive_Target/9 arrives on 2016.08.26th & you’ll have 1 chance to eliminate the target_file_decrypt- C:/Good.Luck

So you can look for the target beginning on Friday, August 26, at 5 a.m. PT / 8 a.m. ET, with a 72 hour window to get the job done. As with all Elusive Targets, there is no mini-map prompt or Instinct mode, and you only get one shot at a kill.

      It looks like the string in the middle of the code just needs to be shifted either up or down in the ASCII code to "decrypt." A simple rotation cipher.

      Is this all stuff that people will miss out on if they buy the game later?

        I will make a prediction... No. It may not be one time kills later on but I have a hard time believing they would put such effort into content that people might never see or purchase later on.

          Yeah I have a feeling these will be selectable missions under an "extras" menu or something. Planning on picking the game up after all the episodes are released.
