Celebrate with a brand new trailer full of multiplayer madness and stealthy stabbing

May 18, 2018 – Blazing Griffin is excited to announce the next step in its ongoing plans to support the growth of multiplayer stealth-em-up, Murderous Pursuits, by kicking off a series of free, monthly content updates, dubbed Mr. X’s Menagerie of Murder. From new game modes and maps, to new abilities and gameplay systems, Blazing Griffin intends to keep the sweet act of assassination feeling fresh, all while appealing to Mr. X’s vain sensibilities. In addition to these free content updates, a series of new characters will also be added over the coming months as paid DLC.

Speaking of vanity, today also marks the launch of a brand new trailer for Murderous Pursuits, outlining the thrill of the multiplayer hunt. Whether it’s conga lines of collateral damage, or sinister slap-offs, there’s only so much that can be said for the best laid plans when you’ve got hunters on your tail.

About Murderous Pursuits
  • Thrill of the Hunt: Identify your quarry, plan their extravagant murder and set it into motion, all before another player wises up and does the same to you!

  • The best laid plans: Outmaneuver your adversaries and react to changing plans on the fly with a variety of abilities including disguises, flash bombs, and counters
  • Murder with excellence: Be discrete, commandeer a high-value weapon, and dance over your quarry’s lifeless body to earn Mr. X’s favour
  • Human after all: Play solo or online multiplayer with other players, featuring support for custom game options and wickedly intelligent bots
