Hitman: Absolution

Hitman: Absolution is an upcoming stealth/third person shooter video game.

The game is being developed by IO Interactive and is being published by Square Einx who are also publishing Tomb Raider. The game is being released on the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. It is the fifth instalment of the Hitman series. The game developers have said that this instalment of Hitman will focus more on action and gunplay. On the 20th of November 2012 the game will be released.

 The story line follows Agent 47 as he is betrayed by the people he once trusted and as he is hunted by the police. He finds himself at the centre of a dark conspiracy and must journey through a corrupt and twisted world. The game will take place in the USA and at least one part of the game will be in Chicago.

The game will feature an online option and the game will feature an instinct mode which allows agent 47 to predict the guard’s patrols much similar to games like, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell. The game will not be set in a specific timeline in the Hitman series but confirmed details in the plot sees agent 47 assassinate his former international contract agency handler Diana Burnwood early in the game.

All I can hope for is that this Hitman game will be a bit more gunplay and not just about sneaking around trying not to get caught.
