The last Splinter Cell game divided fans in terms of its more action-oriented approach at the expense of stealthier tact. Reports of a new Hitman game have been circulating since 2007, but it wasn’t until the release of the uber-teaser trailer in May that we learned the game was called Hitman: Absolution. A new CGI trailer has dropped at E3 and seems to have taken a leaf out of the action-focussed approach to Splinter Cell: Conviction.
Hitman Absolution follows Agent 47, a cold blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he trusted and hunted by the police, he finds himself at the centre of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world, in his search for the truth.
