Fitting to its premise, Hitman: Absolution had a very stealthy E3 2011 presence. Some “behind closed doors” demo work and Square Enix had a small group of lucky individuals raving about how great the game looks.
Despite staying in the shadows for the most part, the team that’s FINALLY making a new Hitman game (instead of another horrible Kane & Lynch) didn’t want to leave the rest of us empty handed. They brought with them a few details about the game, as well as a brand new cinematic trailer.
You can see the new cinematic trailer below, followed by an interview with some details about the game, which will be released sometime in 2012.
Hitman: Absolution will be a more personal story for Agent 47, and as you’ll see in the trailer, our favorite killer appears to be fairly determined to get what he’s after. The trailer is brutal as 47 tears through some guards (perhaps with a little too much energy””I prefer the enemy be disposed of before they even realize 47 is there) and makes his way to the shower of a curious female target.
