Aha! Proper Info On Hitman Absolution

By Alec Meer on May 10th, 2011.

Get out of my gunman of eden, serpent

Following a distinctly unrevaltory teaser trailer earlier today, the slow dribble from the promotional teat for IO’s just-announced fifth Hitman is now running a little faster – we now have a few early details on the game’s theme and the tech behind it. “Never before seen”, “familiar but significantly different…” Uh-oh.

Bald Spot: Hitman 5’s Trailer And Title

By Alec Meer on May 10th, 2011.

Hitman 5 Is Coming, Has ARG

Has the milkman been? No.
We’ve heard rumours for a while now, but it seems like the reveal must be getting close. Why? Well, the chaps over on HitmanForum have stumbled across what seems to be an ARG teasing the fifth Hitman game. Reading the thread, I’m not sure it entirely makes sense, but it’s early and I haven’t had my tea.

In other news: HITMAN 5! It’s enough to make a man want to play Blood Money again.
