Hitman games have always been full of unique and interesting ways to kill. Between impaling targets with swords, and ejecting them out the nether end of glass bottomed pools, well… I’ve always had my hands full. In Hitman: Absolution, we’ll be able to continue this time honored tradition, and with even more room to be creative.
As you’re about to see for yourself, no longer will you be limited to just a few interesting – but completely scripted – means of eliminating your targets. No no… IO Interactive has clearly taken their gloves off for this one, and if I get my wish, the only limit will be my own creativity. A game that doesn’t allow you to wear a chicken suit while taking out a target in a military compound, is a game not worth playing.
The Kill Mode Trailer
So, I have something to confess here. I don’t know who she is, or where they found her… but I really love the speaker’s voice in this trailer. She’s no Diana (or maybe she is?), but her voice matches the tone of the game perfectly. She reminds me of The Chief from Carmen Sandiego, and that’s a good thing. Her voice, the recent announcement of David Bateson’s return to the franchise, and the recent run of awesome gameplay footage has really re-ignited my passion for the franchise. IO, you had better not break my heart.
If you’re new to the series, then I highly recommend checking out the previous game, Hitman: Blood Money. It’s an excellent game in its own right, and should help you bone up on your assassination skills before Hitman: Absolution hits store shelves on November 20th, 2012. The only thing left to do is wait patiently, and possibly make up more terrible Hitman fan fiction involving Agent 47 and Diana.
Order it, that’s an… Order?
Agent 47 wouldn’t let anyone order him around, so you should probably play the game and bone up on a little thing called “backbone”. You can order a copy here for about $30 USD. If you’re looking for more incentive to get the game, well… you get to see Diana naked, kind of… and she’s not even old anymore.
