Hitman: Absolution Gameplay Trailer

Hitman: Absolution

Square Enix has been working on their latest game in the Hitman series, entitled Hitman: Absolution. Even in this early stage in development, it's looking promising. Yesterday, a gameplay trailer was released. This action packed trailer follows Agent 47 going through an abandoned library in Chicago, runs a full 16 minutes, and features 47 creeping around in the dark.

The dynamic lighting in particular looks especially good; watch as random flashes of lightning illuminate otherwise dark areas of the library. The game is currently slated for release sometime next year and will be available for the Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3 platforms.



Hitman: Absolution Announced

Earlier today the Square Enix owned IO Interactive announced the forthcoming title in the Hitman series, Absolution. It's been five years since we've seen Agent 47 do what he does best, and now his skills will be put to the ultimate test. Betrayed by his own agency, 47 finds himself in the heart of a twisted conspiracy. Hunted by those he once trusted and international law enforcement, 47 must take his skills to the next level if he intends on coming to terms with the truth amidst the lies and corruption that has overtaken his world.

Absolution will take advantage of Glacier 2, a new, more advanced engine developed by IO for next-gen consoles. Tore Blystad, Director of Absolution, commented on the game's feel with the new engine saying that it should be a "familiar and yet significantly different experience from other Hitman games".

While there has only been a tid-bit of information pertaining to the game's plot, we can look to E3 for more info and possibly a release date as well. Stay tuned for our E3 coverage for all the exciting updates.
