After a few quiet months from developer IO Interactive, Square Enix have released a new trailer for Hitman: Absolution, offering an extended look at gameplay action from the next addition to the iconic franchise.

The new video features the same section of game that was shown to press at the E3 expo in June, set in a Chicago library with Agent 47 doing his hitman best again the local law enforcement (controversially, in a far less stealthy way than previous games in the series).

Check out the youtube embed below for the goods.

Hitman Absolution is due in 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

I will give it a go, but I really enjoyed the challenge of going silent assassin.

The choice of level may of been a bit off. For fans of the series who remember playing #1 back in the day (and being amazed by the ragdolls lol) this first gameplay look seems very out of character and not part of the game at all. But then again he IS being hunted by police and trapped so what else would you do except go stealthy like a shadow at night?

Either way this looks rather bad ass and liked that you can take hostages and the other guys won't shoot at you, letting you back away.

Massif fan of stealth games ever since MGS (but not so much Splinter Cell). This i do want.

Fans of the series would know you could do this in Hitman: Blood Money.

Would be fantastic to see this level/demo re-shot with different ways through, so a couple of silent take downs, then shoot the rest of the way through, and a full stealth finish to go with the half half they have shown.

Looking good so far. Can't wait to get this on PC!

Check out Hitman: Blood Money and go for all the silent assassin kills. You will see how much fun not killing anyone but your target is.

looks alright... hope its not the finished product though...

> doors magically open when you walk near them
> when in cover running away from chopper he is leaning on thin air a whole lot.
> AI seems stupid... when he takes out the first cop in stoner lair with hand to hand the other one sort of just looks at him?

also... inception theme...

go to 53 seconds in this clip:

Looked good, but different to the rest of the Hitman games. Thing i really enjoyed about the other guys was that you could basically hide in plain site, so many different ways to get to your target. Then again, this is the first footage and i dare say there will definitely be more of that in this game, at least i hope so.

So you're saying that it is fun or not fun doing all stealth kills? sorry sarcasm detector broken.

p.s. Got your copy of FIFA12? add me to XBL so we can have a match

Seems like it's gone a bit casual with that 'tell me where they are and where they are going and where I can go' thing also I hope that level is either a one off or has more ways to get through it, seemed linear. Also booo to dropping the guy who gave his voice and likeness to 47.
