IO Interactive has released a new trailer for its upcoming stealth-action game - Hitman: Absolution. The new trailer is the last in a series of videos that introduced us to the many different aspects of playing a badass bald assassin.
The latest trailer shows the use of Intuition, a mechanic that wasn't present in the previous games. Intuition lets you see enemies and targets through walls, keep an eye on their patrol route; and lets you look for anything that might give you an advantage if things suddenly decided to go sour.
Recently, IO Interactive had released the penultimate trailer in the series that showcased how Hitman: Absolution had a living, breathing world. The trailer - appropriately titled Living, Breathing World - shows how the people in the world created in the game interact with each other, complete with having their own lives with moments of comedy as well as tragedy. The trailer highlights how Agent 47 can use this to his advantage, for example, by learning information needed to get to his target, or learning the daily routine of his target to better set up an assassination.
Number 47 is easily the most badass present-day assassin
The previous trailer of the game – titled Disguises – showed the use of disguises in the game. Disguises in the game allow you to hide in plain sight by stealing your disguise from some unfortunate victim. This allows you to get in closer to your targets, kill them, and walk out the front door without anybody noticing. This also allows you to set up kills to look like they are accidents.
Back in October, IO had released the Kill Mode trailer for Hitman: Absolution. One of the important ways to kill people in the Kill Mode is making the killing look like an accident. This ranges from hooking up an exposed electrical wire to a fence to electrocute the next person to touch it, to making surgical equipment malfunction and kill the patient on the spot. Other ways include the incredibly cartoonish idea of dropping heavy objects on your targets.
IO Interactive had released a similar trailer for Hitman: Absolution back in September. The trailer, titled Tools of the Trade, showed off the wide variety of weapons that will be available at Agent 47’s disposal. These weapons range from 47’s iconic fibre wire – which he uses to take enemies out quietly – to machineguns and his signature steel plated Baller pistols. The game seems to provide for every playstyle, ranging from a master assassin to a crazed maniac with an axe. The trailer also shows that random objects can be improvised into makeshift weapons, giving players the ability to bludgeon enemies to death with a fuel canister.
Hitman: Absolution is the latest entry in the Hitman series of games, and will be released in India on November 20 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Pre-ordering right now will net you the Hitman: Sniper Challenge game.
