Hitman: Absolution Tweaked After Saints Trailer Outrage

Posted on August 17, 2012 AT 03:18am

Hitman Absolution director Tore Blystad has revealed that the game has been tweaked slightly following the outrage at the Saints trailer featuring killer nuns in latex.

Blystad told Eurogamer that the team had responded to criticism of the trailer by giving the group more meaning, “We learned from the trailer that we really needed to give these characters some context and some backstory.”

“We’re working within the game – within that level – to build these characters up before you meet them. That way you know what you’re getting and you aren’t put off by them.”

He added that the team never expected people to be so upset about the trailer, “The game is inspired by Grindhouse-style movies, so for us the trailer was [a] natural way to deal with that subject matter.”

Were you annoyed at the trailer? Was it an overreaction? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
