IO Interactive has released their latest trailer for their soon to be released Hitman: Absolution, introducing The Tools of the Trade. Agent 47 is known for his stealth abilities, but when he is forced into a corner he can use all sorts of tools to get the job done. Being a fully trained assassin Agent 47 is lethal when he gets a hold of a gun, from his trusty silenced silver .45’s, to a fully automatic rifle, he will pursue his targets with relentless intent.
Each level of Hitman: Absolution is loaded with weapons allowing you to choose your own way to complete the task at hand. Gun-play is just one the many facets of inflicting pain, with hand-to-hand weapons being spread out throughout the level. Think that crowbar will kill your enemy? Will a brick be useful to break this guys skull? The options range from glass bottles, wrenches, butcher knifes, scissors, statues and many more, Agent 47 is as lethal close-up as he is at long range. Hitman’s signature weapon, the fiber wire is back to allow silent take downs that incapacitate your foes without blowing your cover.
This is the first video in a series, introducing the important aspects in Hitman: Absolution. Stayed tuned for the next video, when we are shown the important factors when it comes to “The Kill”.
Hitman: Absolution will be released later this year on November 20, on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
