Hitman Absolution developer IO Interactive announced a new game mode, Contracts, at Gamescom yesterday, and a new trailer for the game explains the way Contracts works.

Contracts is an online mode offering an asynchronous, user-defined multiplayer experience. Players set up a level with targets to kill, along with weapons and items to do it with, and then run through the level itself to set the parameters of the contract. Once it's ready to go, Absolution uploads the contract for everyone else to attempt; players can even create competitions that challenge people to outperform each other.

"We believe contracts bring replayability; it brings you play to create, and finally we feel we will get a stronger sense of community than ever before," said gameplay director Christian Elverdam.

Check out the video below, as well as our in-depth look at the Contracts mode. Hitman Absolution is due out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 20th, 2012.
