E3 2011: Hitman: Absolution Screenshots & Trailer Released

June 9, 2011

By Andrew Burnes

Agent 47 has reemerged from the shadows to star in Hitman: Absolution, a follow-up to the five-year old Hitman: Blood Money, which was itself preceded by a further three titles, beginning with Hitman: Codename 47 in 2000. Details are hush hush right now, but we do know that there’s a new antagonist, and that the entirety of the game will take place in the United States.

We’re also told that there’s a new AI system that sees enemies share intelligence to efficiently hunt 47 down, and that the bald bringer of death will have a special vision mode that highlights enemies through walls, which sounds rather like Eagle Vision from Assassin’s Creed. Beyond that, all we have to go on is a stylish CG trailer, which is available to watch below.
