As players go through missions, kill targets, and escape safely, they will see real-life locations in France. As with Hitman, Karl Fairburne isn't the kind of character who can survive a platoon or squad finding him, so stealth is necessary.
While Karl Fairburne cannot be customized, his weapon can be. Gunplay still remains a priority, and players will be able to customize their weapons. Each attachment players put on their weapon affects the Power, Rate of Fire, Control, and Mobility.
