This is a stealth action game in which players control Agent 47, an assassin tasked with eliminating targets throughout various missions. From a third-person perspective, players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and various tools (e.g., poisons, cleavers, explosives) to assassinate human characters. Players can also use stealth attacks (e.g., strangling characters with wires) or environmental elements (e.g., wood chipper) to eliminate targets and guards discretely. Players have the ability to kill non-adversary characters (e.g., striking them with an ax, shooting them in plain sight), though this may negatively affect players' progress and points. Large blood-splatter effects often occur, and pools of blood appear under victims' bodies. During the course of the game, some female characters are seen unconscious and dragged by players' character; their underwear and portions of their buttocks are sometimes depicted. The dialogue also contains sexual material (e.g., "I b*nged your sister," "Big man. Wanna suck my d*ck," and "You're looking for some dodgy Eye's Wide Shut orgy, aren't you?"). In one sequence, players lure targets to smoke cannabis cigarettes. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c*nt” are heard in dialogue.
