Bald Spot: Hitman 5's Trailer And Title

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.

Snakes and faux masturbation await Baldy McBald this time around, then.

The barcode at the end, incidentally, includes the numbers 47 (you can work that one out yourself) and 110706 – the latter referring to the game’s presumed unveiling at E3 next month. 0401? Could mean something, I guess. Any takers?

A more detailed announcement is due tomorrow, apparently. So we shall be posting again then, yes we shall.
