Six long years. That’s how long fans of the Hitman video game franchise have waited for this. And finally, Hitman: Absolution arrived this year.
Six years is a very long time to wait for the next installment in a game series you adore, indeed, as fans of Hitman and Bethesda games can very well tell you. For we who have anxiously awaited the chance to once again slip on the gloves of Agent 47, watching in stunned silence as not one but two Kane & Lynch games were made instead, the moment we finally got our hands on it could only be described as blissful.
This also comes with a healthy dose of bias, even for those trying to be as objective as possible such as myself, as Absolution was going to have to be an unfathomable disaster for fans to be unsatisfied. Still, while the game has a lot to be happy about, there were still some minor flaws to overcome.
It’s been a long wait for fans of the Hitman video game franchise—about five and a half years since Hitman: Blood Money was released—but a new game is finally set for our loving embrace when Hitman: Absolution finally arrives.
The latest installment in the collection of Hitman: Absolution trailers that focus on various aspects of the game, is titled “Living, Breathing World.”
In it, you’ll look closer at the world that surrounds Agent 47 as he makes he way through his missions, as well as the people within it. Developer IO Interactive clearly did not want just a bunch of robotic people in their world, walking on rails from one side of the room to the other, saying the same thing over and over. And so they set out, ambitiously, to give their world real life. Now we can only wait until the game is released on November 20th (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC) to see what kind of lungs it has.

IO Interactive and Square Enix has released another trailer for the upcoming fifth installment in the Hitman franchise, titled Hitman: Absolution.
The new trailer is titled “Introducing the Kill,” and it looks at how you’ll be able to take out your targets, whether that be silent and unseen or a little bit louder if you get caught and need to adapt to your situation.
