Hitman: Absolution In-Game Footage Leaked

By Quintin Smith on June 13th, 2011.

Codename 47's been playing Assassin's Creed, I see

Oof, there’s no telling how long this one will stay online, but some scamp has posted footage of the behind-closed-doors showing of Hitman: Absolution (EDIT: turns out it was the Danish news. Oops.). According to our man John Walker, who actually saw the full demo, the following is an odd compilation of scenes from it, cut with scenes from the glossy, ambiguous cutscene that we did see. Odd.

E3 2011 First Look: Hitman Absolution

By John Walker on June 9th, 2011.

He will kill again.

Old baldygrumps is back, and we’ve finally seen him slinking about the place. The level we saw of Hitman Absolution may have been a bit gloomy, but where it captured attention was with the atmosphere it generated.

Hitman: Absolution Trailer is CG, Ambiguous

By Jim Rossignol on June 8th, 2011.


I say, those computer games people are getting rather good at making cinematic trailers! This one’s quite the thing.

The game is out some time next year.

The Fifth ‘Man: Hitman Absolution CG Spot

By Alec Meer on June 7th, 2011.

Maybe he should have dressed up as a pillar. It's probably easier than climbing all that way up one.

Edit- The trailer is no more. For now, anyway. Sorta-explanation below.

We’re still agonisingly denied a look at Hitman 5, aka Hitman: Absolution, aka Hitman: Subtitle in as-it-plays action, but at least we’ve got some raaaawk-soundtracked, stylised pre-rendered kill sequences and scene-setting to stare at. It also features a sort-of naked lady, but you can’t really see anything, but if you’re reading this in a place where an image of a sort-of naked lady but of whom you can’t really see anything would cause you trouble, like a nunnery or on a projector in a primary school classroom, you probably shouldn’t carry on.

The First Hitman: Absolution Screens

By Jim Rossignol on June 6th, 2011.


Are they screens, or are they “target renders”? I’ve blatantly pinched them from Eurogamer and posted them below so that you can decide.

All Hail ‘Hitman: Subtitle’

By Alec Meer on May 16th, 2011.

Because 'Hitman: Another One' would have been going too far

Morning, giggles. How’s every little thing? To start you off for the new week, let’s have a good old belly-laugh at leaked marketing materials for the mysterious Hitman: Absolution. Or, as these presumably work in progress box covers (via Kotaku) claim it’s called, “Hitman: Subtitle.” Y’know what, I’d have bought extra copies if it really was called that. There’s an honesty to it. “The bit after the colon doesn’t mean anything but people expect it – just put any old melodramatic guff in there.” So Hitman: Subtitle it must officially remain on RPS, forever. Coming up next – Red Faction: Sequel.

It’ll Be A Hit, Man: Hitman Absolution Details

By John Walker on May 12th, 2011.

Imagine if they released a screenshot?!!?!

The Hollywood Reporter has written a big old bunch of information about Hitman: Absolution, because games are like totally mainstream. Also, it seems IO are taking a very Hollywood approach to the production, with its cast already being announced. Including Klundy!

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. Change – the internet’s least favourite thing. Prepare the twin engines of excitement and rage, faithful pseudo-asssassins….

Bald Spot: Hitman 5′s Trailer And Title

By Alec Meer on May 10th, 2011.

Snicker

Here we go… After a flurry of rumour and ARG-based teasing, a comeback for the murderous man with the marvelous pate is now officially confirmed. We have a name – as has been series tradition since the third game, there’ll be no number in the title. This is not Hitman 5, but instead Hitman Absolution. But what will our stern Agent 47 be absolving himself of? Forgetting to put the bins out on time for the sixth week running, is my guess. Maybe it’ll be something to do with assassionation, though. Anyway! The first trailer, all 27 bloody seconds of it, is below. No in-game footage, of course (we never get that until the eleventh hour these days, it seems) but we do get some mood-setting music and some glove-porn.
