IO Interactive's Hitman reboot hasn't received a whole lot of attention since its episodic debut in March, making it one of the best games of 2016 you probably aren't playing.
While its piecemeal approach may seem arbitrary at first glance, IO Interactive has approached this episodic content in a thoughtful way by drip feeding players new things to do while they wait for the next installment. And, by far, the most interesting extra Hitman content comes in the form of Elusive Targets: assassination objectives that appear for a limited amount of time, making the stakes much higher than your average mission.
Around the time of Hitman's launch, publisher Square-Enix held a poll on the website chooseyourhit.com, where players (or just curious onlookers) could vote between two famous Garys: Gary Cole and Gary Busey. Cole has certainly made a name for himself in pop culture with iconic roles in movies like Office Space and Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, but from the outset he never really had a chance against Busey. Since his career peaked in the '90s, Busey has mostly been famous for playing an even more unhinged version of himself—which likely isn't an exaggeration at all.
If you'd like to fulfill your Gary Busey-murdering fantasies, he'll appear as an Elusive Target in Sapienza starting on Thursday, July 21 at 2:00pm CEST / 05:00am PDT. And, unlike other Elusive Targets, you'll have a full week to track him down, instead of just 72 hours. I guess that's just one of the many privileges that come with being a former Oscar nominee.
