Hands On: Hitman Hits Its Stride In Sapienza And Marrakesh

After the flashbulbs and pulsing techno of Paris, Hitman [official site] Episode 2's Sapienza level feels like a holiday – the kind of holiday John Le Carre writes about, in which lingering over your espresso is tantamount to painting a bullseye on your back. Set on the Italian coast, the chapter opens with Agent 47 idling on a bench opposite a fortified mansion belonging to…

Hitman: The Joy Of Cocking Up

Any time a new Hitman [official site] game rolls around, I need to know the answer to one question: can I royally screw basically everything up and get away with it? Not for me the Silent Assassin, but more a series of pratfalls, murders performed inadvertently in plain sight, panicked costume changes and awkward scuffles, inevitably culminating in a desperate sprint to the exit with…

RPS-O-Chat: Hitman Beta

This post was originally published as part of our Supporter Program. The Hitman beta is out and, if you've pre ordered (don't pre-order), you can play it right now. It contains the game's two prologue missions, which act as a tutorial and as a mission statement for both Agent 47 and for the game's attempt to take the series back to its systemic, murderous roots.…

Here Are The March Releases We’re Most Excited About

We’re a month and a half into 2016 and it’s already been a vintage year. Firewatch, American Truck Simulator, The Witness and XCOM 2 are a varied and delightful quartet, and we’ve also seen the rebirth of Homeworld and several smaller, stranger, delights. But what’s next? RATHER A LOT. Far Cry: Primal, Hitman, The Division, Shardlight and SUPERHOT for starters. Adam and Graham convened to…

Hitman Aims For Freedom But Misses The Mark

After Hitman: Absolution, Agent 47 is in need of another subtitle. Redemption, perhaps, or Contrition. His upcoming adventure has already made headlines thanks to its now-confirmed episodic release schedule but it also seemed to be a game made with the awareness that the previous hadn't given fans of the series quite what they wanted. I was eager to get my hands on it after seeing…

The Best Gifts In Gaming

There are many gifts in gaming. I could argue that the entire loot system that underpins so many RPGs is based on the same kind of pleasures as unwrapping mystery boxes in the festive season. We're all hoping for a +1 version of whatever gadget we received last year and we all have that one relative who gives us a collection of pungent bathroom items…

Improvisation, Experimentation And Dark Comedy: Hitman Is Coming Home

Absolution might be a fitting tag for what looks like a return to form and a casting off of the sins of the past, but since that subtitle's already taken, I'm hoping I'll be able to justify referring to this one as Hitman: Redemption [official site]. So far, the signs are good. I spent some time in the company of IO Interactive's studio head, Hannes…

Hitman Interview: “The Aspiration Is To Build The Perfect Hitman Game”

The Hitman [official site] trailer shown at E3 gave a promising tease for a game which is provoking anxiety as well as anticipation. The sentiment I've heard echoing through editorials and comment sections boils down to "more Blood Money, less Absolution, please" but IO Interactive's creative director, Christian Elverdam hopes to marry the best of both games, distilling them to find the essence of Hitman.…

Mass Murderer Goes Free

This old games for free trend is something I endorse as wholly as I do the delicious taste of Jacob's Twiglets. The only problem with most of them is that they're supported by ads, which unlike fat-free, low calorie Jacob's Twiglets, can leave you feeling a bit uncomfortable. Stiil, it's a small price to pay (much like only 59p per snack-sized bag of Jacob's Twiglets…
