Hitman: Subtitle Boasts A “Living World”

By Jim Rossignol on November 2nd, 2012.


In what must surely be the last-but-three trailer before Hitman: Absolution gets a launch trailer (the game appears on November 20th), Square are trying to show off the “living world” in which their game of death and baldness take place. As Adam noted as we watched this in the RPS virtual office, “That Chinatown sequence about 40 secs in is awesome.” It really, genuinely is awesome – but is it really game-representative? Is that crowd actually in game and not just a cutscenetrick? I suppose we’ll find out soon enough…

Hitman: Subtitle Disguises Agent 47 As A Murderer

By Jim Rossignol on October 19th, 2012.


God, I love disguises. I can’t go the shop without putting on a beard and some elf ears. It looks like Agent 47 shares the same enthusiasms, too, because in the latest Hitman: Absolution trailer (it’s around here somewhere, I know it) we get to see him dressed as a policeman, a worrying janitor, a hotel porter you would not trust with your luggage, a hired killer (not sure if that’s really a disguise), a lab technician, a samurai, a chef, a… scarecrow? A judge, a cowboy, I don’t know what that is, Robocop, that guy who works at the pub, a hazmat person, a builder, a murderer, a tinfoil hat man, a wrestler/gimp, a chicken…

And so on.

Hitman: Absolution Details Talk “Variety”

By Quintin Smith on June 27th, 2011.

Is he getting older? I think he is. Awesome.

Ripten‘s only gone and harvested a entire picnic of Hitman: Absolution details from the latest issue of Edge, including the following bombshell- “47′s voice actor will not be returning.”

An era is over, my friends. A weird era, but one that did, at least, perfectly capture the voice of a psychotic man raised in a jar. 47′s agent and only friend, Diana, is being played be someone else too- Lost’s Marsha Thomason, aka Naomi Dorrit from Lost. But there’s lots, lots more after the jump.

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.

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….

Mini Ninjas, Er, Braunch Trailer?

By John Walker on September 2nd, 2009.

Aw, don't kill them, they're cute!

IO’s surprisingly cute third-person action game, Mini Ninjas, appears on the 8th for US types, and the 11th for those in Europe. Not perhaps the inevitable follow-up to Hitman and Kane & Lynch, the ker-choppy silliness seems like it could be pretty fun. You can play the demo for yourself to test your prelikings. Meanwhile, somewhat prematurely, there’s a ‘launch trailer’ that’s just appeared.
