The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

E3 First Impressions: Hitman: Absolution

Posted on Wednesday, June 8 @ 23:24:47 PST by



Do you have fond memories of strangling strangers? How about costume changes mid-mission? How about shooting the bottom out of glass Jacuzzis? Man, it sure would be nice if they made a new Hitman game.


Wait, what? Hitman: What? Hitman: Absolution from IO Interactive is that new Hitmangame you're looking for, and Game Revolution's E3 2011 sneak peek today showed how Agent 47 is still the violent, open-ended, and humorous action game we all know and love. While the developers behind Hitman's return haven't released gameplay to the public, we got a sneak peek at a mission that turned 47 from hunter to hunted.

IO's demo starts in a rainy Chicago with Hitman crashing through an abandoned library window. Police enters on the ground floor searching for 47. Though our anti-hero starts on a second floor ledge, he quickly drops down and sticks to cover as he moves past police patrolmen. Before entering the next section of the building, 47 watches an inept policemen fiddling with the fuse box. After he moves away from the box, 47 disables the electricity and lurks in the shadows past more guards.

Once in the second part of the level, 47 has to kill several policemen to progress. He strangles one with a power chord, smashs another guard's face with a statue bust, and snaps the neck of another. Once he makes it to the exit of the building, he pulls out a pistol he picked off a policemen earlier and kills even more of them as they funnel up the stairs.



After making his way up the stairs, 47 kills another policemen and switches into his uniform. The developer crosses a roof and moves into a hippy den where NPCs are obviously under the influence. This is where that classic Hitman humor comes into play. But don't let that distract the scene... "intense" doesn't even begin to describe 47's exit out of the building. Every step that brings 47 closer to the exit only brings more police, and thus more killing

While we didn't get a chance to play the game ourselves, Hitman: Absolution obviously brings the series into a new generation, bringing everything you've come to know and love about 47 with it.
