View author's profile

Square Enix has released a new video for Hitman: Absolution, containing a whopping 18 minutes of gameplay footage.

Most excitingly the footage is from the new Contracts mode, which looks completely brilliant. In Contracts mode you can set up and share your own assassination missions, dictating the precise requirements of the level. It may well turn out to be the jewel in the crown of what promises to be one of this year’s very best upcoming titles.

Have a look at the vid below. Hitman: Absolution is out in North America on November 20th and Europe on November 23rd.

This is looking to be the best Hitman for me, so much more replay value than the other games.

I tried the game at an event they had in Sydney (they let us try the 2nd level and went into detail about the contracts mode while playing that video above).
Feels very much like a mix of Assassin's Creed and Dues Ex.

The part were he killed the guy, and walked away all casual. Omg that gave me chills. Agent 47, you need to hurry up and release.

@10 It's a new troll fad or something. someone said the same thing about Borderlands 2. How that is even anything remotely like Brink is beyond me.
Fucking trolls.

question: will having never played other Hitman games matter for this game? i really like the look of this one and wana play it, but will it matter if i've not played the others? it's not like a running story or anything right? it's just 47 rocking about fucking people up like an absolute boss?

@14 No it doesn't matter but I would still suggest picking up Blood Money you can get it pretty cheap.

Love this gameplay and felt near similar to original Splinter Cell forms. :):)

I am sure this one will kill every Hitman series for best series. If not then doesn't matter as long as game is great. Already preorder collector's edition. :)

#16: God knows how long it took you to type those 2 sentences if you think the Brink guy has a lot of time on their hands.

@14 : No, there isn't any real story (or at least, interesting) in Hitman games. Basically, each level have a little (useless) story which explains why you have to kill guy x, y and z (for example) and that's all.

I would also suggest to play Blood Money if Absolution interest you, it's pretty cheap and then you'll be able to see if you like Hitman games (Absolution looks pretty like Blood Money in terms of gameplay).

Too late, so here's a new message but for people who complains about ads, I didn't get any so you can just install "addblock" (available for Opera and Firefox) and then you won't have ads in the videos :)
