Hitman: Absolution Debuts at E3 2011

At this very moment, an army of hard-working team members are into the second day of presenting what is a true labor of love for IO InteractiveHitman: Absolution. The knowledge that millions of fans have been waiting for news on Hitman is making the guys give it everything they have to present a game that we’re extremely proud of at IO. Lifting the veil on the development of a new game is always fun but given the connection between the studio and Hitman, this time it’s more exciting than ever.

And the debut trailer? Well, see for yourself. Agent 47, the world’s deadliest assassin, returns to take on his most dangerous contract ever. This time, he finds himself betrayed by the people he trusted and must use every skill and talent he has available to claw his way out of a dark conspiracy, which takes him through a corrupt world of twisted enemies. Thankfully, 47 is a resourceful individual and nothing will stand in his way for long.

When you’re creating a game with the scope of Hitman: Absolution, you don’t just have one finish line at the end of the race – you have lots. In fact, it can sometimes feel like you’re running a relay race all by yourself, constantly handing over and simultaneously receiving the baton to go another lap around the track. It’s exhausting, sure, but every time you complete a lap, a new surge of energy hits and you can run on that high for a long time.

Hitman: Absolution for PS3

Coming to E3 and delivering this debut trailer for Hitman: Absolution, as well as the presentations on the floor, has provided us with a massive boost of energy, which will come in handy for the next months as we push to make the game the absolutely best it can be. IO and Hitman are intertwined on an almost cellular level and with this game, we’re taking everything to the next level. We trust you will all enjoy the experience.

  • Been looking forward to a new Hitman for a long time. Excited for this one!

  • Damn… i cant wait. Its been so long – i would love HD remake of previous Hitmans as well cause i loved them.

  • I watched this trailer like 10 times and I’m soooo excited!!!! One more year to wait… I just hope this yaer goes by fast lol

  • Interesting…

  • that-acmilan-guy

    I hate CG trailers

  • Hey Sony how about we get more RPG’s and a few MMO’s. PS3 has a ton of FPS, action, adventure and stuff but we are seriously lacking in other types of games.

  • holy **** i want now1!!!!!! and a HD remake of the others for the ps3 come on everyone we make enough noise we can annoy them to make it

  • That looks pretty sick!

  • I really hope you guys haven’t entirely abandoned the style of gameplay that you guys are known for. I also hope weapon customization is just as free as Blood Money was.

    Either way, day 1 buy. Hitman Blood Money is currently my favorite game of all time and I hope Absolution does not disappoint. (also, what took so long?! :P))

  • I can’t wait! I always loved this series, and it’s about time someone shows Ubisoft how to make an ASSASSIN game!

  • is there going 2 be a lmtd bundle for this game when it comes out??

  • I know this is meant to be a teaser, but some more information would be nice. I’ve been around since the first game and have enjoyed most of the Hitman series. I really hope you guys didn’t dumb this down–oops… I mean make it more “accessible” as the industry likes to term the phenomenon these days. I am looking forward to more info in the near future.

  • Looks good cant wait..

  • Man i been waiten for this moment since the trailer was first leaked! I cant wait for this game to come out!!!

  • I knew Diana was hot! I knew it! Anyway, can’t wait for this game, I love how they just build the place, place the characters in it, a few items or places we can use, and let us decide how to kill our target. We are in control of how the person dies.

  • Melee moves and disarm counters? That doesn’t seem right for a Hitman game.

  • Yesssssssssss wooohooo been wanting to play hitman

  • YOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO I can not wait for this I new it was coming Sooner or later.

  • Hahaha I’m 47 when it comes to call of duty and other first person shooters just look at my name ps. don’t jock :D grafixs look sick in this game… hope it has multiplayer because in todays world thats what sells the game word of advice.

  • Is this exclusive to PS3?

  • YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i allways dreamt with another hitman game!!! I could never understand why they hadn’t done another one !!!! this is the first time i log into my PSN account to comment on this forum… Im so glad you are making another entry to the Hitman universe! please guys a HD remake of the older entries would be awesome… Any clues if it will support online play? sort of like assassin’s creed brotherhood did. Im so excited for this

  • I think I just wet myself.

  • that-acmilan-guy

    I just don’t like they are using blurred anti aliasing.


  • Gotta love 47 can’t wait til this and the new hitman movie comes out gonna be a good time.

  • TotallyOriginal

    what about freedom fighters?

  • #9 – We’ve definitely not abandoned that playstyle, no.

    #12 – We’re all about giving players choice and freedom. We’re doing a lot to make sure players are now far more aware of what the AI does and thinks and how to react to that. It’s a bg part of what we do now. Also, there’s a pile of previews with impressions from the demo being produced at the moment, so you should check them out for more information.

    Finally, regarding HD remakes, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen, I’m afraid.
