200819b3 620x348 Hitman Absolution E3 2011 AnnouncementI’ve always enjoyed the Hitman series.  There is nothing more satisfying than pulling off a mission and having nobody ever know you were there.  You are invisible, you are a ghost, you are Agent 47.    We’ll see our favorite barcoded Agent return at some point in 2012 with a whole new bag of tricks.  We’ve got a trailer for you to check out, but before you do – here is a little snippet about the game:

HITMAN ABSOLUTION follows cold-blooded assassin Agent 47 as he takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted, and hunted by the police, he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a journey through a corrupt and twisted world.

Showcasing IO Interactive’s new proprietary Glacier 2 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 features never seen before in the Hitman franchise.

No release date for the game yet other than next year, but the game is being developed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.   Stay tuned as we have an appointment to see this game up close and personal.
