Hitman: Absolution Online Pass No Longer Required For Contracts

Square Enix has binned the online pass code required to play Hitman: Absolution's asynchronous Contracts mode, meaning that it's now completely free for anyone, even those who purchase a copy of the game used.
The publisher has essentially had second thoughts regarding the online pass for Contracts, deciding that it made more sense to ensure the mode was available to everyone.
"We’re so excited that Hitman: Absolution is launching next week! In particular, we’re looking forward to all of the amazing ways players can challenge each other in the innovative CONTRACTS mode – where you get to call the shots," IO Interactive stated on its Hitman: Absolution blog. “We’d actually planned to have this mode accessible via a code in the game’s box, but we really want to make it available to anybody that plays the game – so we want to take a new approach.”
You'll be able to access the online pass for Contracts via the in-game menu where you'll be able to grab it for free, or you can still use the code bundled in the game box with new copies. Hitman: Absolution is out tomorrow worldwide, and is actually rather bloody good.
