Hitman: Blood Money conducts the perfect hit on retail shelves on Friday 26th May

For immediate release

Eidos Interactive, one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today confirms that Hitman: Blood Money will hit European shelves on Friday 26th May 2006 on Xbox 360, PC, PS2 and Xbox.

Hitman: Blood Money is the latest installment in the sinister assassination series, developed by IO Interactive, and takes killing for money to a whole new level.

When assassins from Agent 47's contract agency, The ICA, are systematically eliminated in a series of hits, it seems a larger, more powerful agency has entered the fray. For Agent 47 it's business as usual, until suddenly he loses contact with The ICA. Sensing that he may be the next target, he travels to America, where he prepares to make a killing.

It's the best [Hitman] yet, and rewards calculating and sociopathic players with a super-satisfying blend of thought, tension, violence, humour and downright cool.
REVIEW SCORE: 9/10 OPM2 [issue 73, June 2006]
