How about controlling a “Real Life” Hitman? Sounds interesting right! Well, real-life experience is pretty cool when you get to control a real “bad-ass”.
As per the Gamespot reports, “The team at Realm Pictures has created an interactive Hitman experience in which people control a real Agent 47 (well, real as in he’s played by a bald, barcoded actor) as they seek out targets in a sprawling, item-filled mansion.”
Check out the video below where participants are invited to sit in a room and control a real-life Agent 47 actor. He is seen infiltrating a mansion and then killing his enemies. And the best part? He is following you orders!
According to the source, everything feels like a game. The participants have access to maps and lead the “Agent 47” to finalise his mission. But, if you aren’t able to follow the orders, your agent will be killed and you have to start all over again.
Kotaku released the footage of the real-life experience as well as the behind the scenes images of the entire set up.
“Hitman” is an upcoming action-adventure stealth video game that is currently under development by IO Interactive and will be published by Square Enix for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 11 March 2016 in an episodic release format. It will be the sixth entry in the Hitman video game series. The game’s prologue acts as a prequel to the series, however the main game will take place after the events of “Hitman: Absolution”.
A player’s mission performance is rated by factors such as the time taken, number of innocent people killed, number of witnesses or CCTV captures, or whether special equipment was left behind. Bonuses like new gadgets will be awarded to players in accordance to their performance during missions. Some missions are time-limited. If players fail to assassinate the target before the mission expires, or alert the target and allow them to escape, the target will not return.
The video was part of a promotional campaign ahead of the release but has garnered immense popularity on the social media.
Stay tuned for more updates.
