Agent 47 is going to have a lot on his plate in the new Hitman: Absolution. The “Tools of the Trade” trailer shows off his new arsenal, featuring a wide variety of weapons for the assassin to choose from. His signature .45 stainless steel Silver Ballers with silencers are back along with shotguns, assault rifles, snipers; the works. But the Hitman’s arsenal is more than just guns and piano wire. Featured in the trailer are things like baseball bats, coffee mugs, a variety of sharp things, and more. Smash a guy in the head with a brick, or maybe pick up a wrench or crowbar you find lying around. And don’t forget, there are always plenty of things that explode. Hitman gives you the freedom to choose your tool, and complete your missions how you wish. Personally, I think I’m going to be doing a lot of missions with the plunger.
If the shame doesn’t kill someone initially I’m sure I can just beat them to death with it. “Sniping is an art form in Absolution” with large caliber rifles and sniper mechanics like breath control. Blowing people away has never been so much fun. Be an assassin, be a maniac, just play with everything. I have never played any of the previous Hitman games, but this one has piqued my curiosity. I love it when a game gives you options. With Absolution, I think there will be enough options to keep me playing at for a while.
Hitman: Absolution will be coming to PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on November 20th.
