THE BUZZ: IO Interactive unloaded a new trailer for the latest in its popular Hitman series, Hitman: Absolution. The trailer shows Agent 47 tracking down a young woman in a hospital moments before the game’s antagonist Blake Dexter and his goons take the girl. Agent 47 wields his signature dual Silverballer pistols, killing enemies from every angle on his way to the young female. When Agent 47 makes it to the girl, she is laying dead and naked on the floor with a coin in her hand; we hear the name “Victoria” just before the shot ends. The trailer concludes with an empty elevator, blown out lights, and Agent 47 shooting everyone that was stupid enough to call the elevator.
EGM’s TAKE: Religious undertones – check. Chicken wire – check. Bald protagonist killing everyone with everything he can find and showing little to no remorse – check. This is a Hitman game alright. While David Bateson is no longer voicing our favorite Assassin, Hitman: Absolution looks as promising as ever. Who is Victoria? Why is Agent 47 hell bent on avenging her murder? We’re sure we’ll find out, and kill everyone else in the process.
