Square Enix has just made all Hitman fans extremely happy with the announcement of a new game in the series being released sometime next year on the PC, PS3 and 360. Hitman: Absolution is the suitably chosen title, with developers IO Interactive bringing back Agent 47 and his trusty fiber wire after a long video-game absence. A new teaser trailer is also included for 47’s new unveiling, appearing as sinister as previous Hitman trailers did.
The game has been built from the ground up and will feature the Glacier 2 game engine. The studio says that it will highly original game design and a cinematic story.
“[Hitman Absolution] has been built from the ground up. Boasting a cinematic story, distinctive art direction and highly original game design, Hitman Absolution combines much-loved classic gameplay with completely new features never seen before in the Hitman franchise.”
“[Players will be taking] on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted — and now hunted by the police — he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.”
Absolution will feature Agent 47 on a “personal journey which allows [gamers] to explore other parts of the Hitman fantasy”. Those used to the stealth-action series will feel right at home as well as a little unprepared for the new additions that will change up the experience. Look for more info about Absolution at this year’s E3, where gameplay will hopefully be shown. Check out the teaser below and get pumped, the best in the “cleaning” business is back!
