    Default Hitman: Absolution Announcement



    IO INTERACTIVE UNVEILS
    HITMAN ABSOLUTION

    The fifth game in the multi-million selling franchise
    showcasing IO’s new Glacier 2 game engine
    -------------------------

    COPENHAGEN (May 11, 2011) — IO Interactive A/S, part of Square Enix Europe, is pleased to confirm HITMAN ABSOLUTION™, a new game for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC.

    HITMAN ABSOLUTION follows Agent 47®, a cold blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he trusted and hunted by the police, he finds himself at the centre of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world, in his search for the truth.

    “For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the HITMAN® fantasy,” said Tore Blystad, game director, IO Interactive. “This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience to any of the other Hitman games, something our silent assassins will relish as well as those who are new to the Hitman world.”

    Showcasing IO Interactive’s new proprietary Glacier 2TM technology, the game has been built from the ground up, boasting a cinematic story, distinctive art direction and highly original game design, HITMAN ABSOLUTION combines much loved classic gameplay with completely new gameplay features for the Hitman franchise.

    Scheduled for release in 2012, HITMAN ABSOLUTION will be showcased by invitation only at the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, California from June 7-9.

    Please visit www.Hitman.com for updates.

    So will Hitman: Absolution be publicly shown at E3 2011? Because I don't see it in the live video schedule at IGN.

    Bah. I doubt we'll have to wait too long for some (officially released) gameplay footage.

    There's no trailer with 47 eating donuts.
    And still no PC specs at this time. Too early for it.

    Does anyone know if Absolution will be continuing the story of Blood Money? Cause i know at the last seen of the game,47 talks to this one guy and he says one of his aliases and he shows 47 to his room and the game cuts out.

    The trailer looks really nice. I am highly anticipating this from Eidos and I hope it will be as good or better than previous versions. Storyline should be continued as in the trailer, where 47 infiltrates the mansion, the girl in the shower is Diana.

    47: "reaper."

    Obviously, Absolution isn't coming in 2011.
    The original announcement still stands true - 2012 is the year of Hitman.

    so in the commentary video one of the developers says that there will be more and different things that can happen to 47... like he can get arrested or handcuffed...

    if we are posed as a cop, can we arrest people too?? or at least handcuff them and knock them out... or shove them in a closet... or handcuff them and take them as hostages...

    ohhh that would be so sweet

    collect a bunch of hostages... sounds like a sweet mission...

    of course it ends in 47 killing all of them and getting away or.....

    somehow he collects all the hostages without them seeing him.. and keeps them with bags on their heads...

    uses them... and gets away.. this way he wouldnt have to kill all the hostages...

    and a person can be handcuffed in more than one place... not just their hands but their feet... if i was 47 and only handcuffed by my hands... im sure i could break away with my awesome close combat skills but run away buy some time and pick the locks.. i may be without my ballerrsss but not for long... if i could chase down the cop who confiscated them and made him pay with his teeth

    ahhh... one can only dream unitll the release... sorry about the A.D.D fellas.. my question was

    if we are 47 dressed as the cops will we be able to use the cuffs?? or will 47 have his own cuffs??

    I was wondering is HitMan Absolution going to utilize all 4 cores of a processor with your New Glacer 2 Game Engine for the PC version, so it would be alot smoother and lag free, do your best developer team!
