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…

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…

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…

Agent $4.99: Mobile Spin-Off Hitman GO Now On PC, Kinda

We have Opinions about Absolution, the most recent Hitman game, 'round these parts. Opinions which not everybody shares, but everybody should because famously we're always 100% Objectively Correct in all things. Despite some grasping at greatness, it seemed a disservice to Hitman as we knew it. Meanwhile, in Mobileland, whispers spread that there was, in fact, a pretty great latter-day Hitman. Its name was Hitman…

Killer Instinct: A Hitman Absolution Preview

Agent Griliopoulos was dispatched to see the game formerly known as Hitman: Subtitle for us. He returned bathed in blood, dressed as a sailor, and bearing these words. Update: now with brand new screenshots! Oh, we are skeptical souls at RPS. Though we loved Hitman: Blood Money, we have been somewhat wary of Hitman: Absolution. Partially, because there are mild changes to something we loved…

Very Disco: Hitman Absolution

Somehow, this is the first official in-game footage of Hitman: Subtitle which has been released to the hungry eyes of the public. Feast, feast! As Adam worried in his preview t'other week, old 47 doesn't appear to be quite so silent an assassin as he once was, but it's good to see he's still playing fancy dress in between punching people and shooting people and…

The Fifth ‘Man: Hitman Absolution CG Spot

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…

All Hail ‘Hitman: Subtitle’

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…

Aha! Proper Info On Hitman Absolution

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…

Bald Spot: Hitman 5’s Trailer And Title

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…

Confirmed: Hitman 5 Includes Hands, Towers

And so begins the long, long road to actual information. Game marketing in the second decade of the 21st century is all about the drawn-out tease - we already knew Hitman 5 was in on the act due to news of an apparent alternate reality game associated with sharp-suited baldieman Agent 47, and now we have the results of said ARG. Screenshots! Screenshots of gloves!

Retro: Hitman Blood Money

This is a revised version of a piece I wrote last year for PC Gamer UK. There's something on my mind. This being a Hitman retrospective you might think that thing would be murder, but actually it's the nature of puzzles. You see, it seems to me that each level of a Hitman game isn't merely a set of rooms full of enemies to be…
