Hitman: Absolution is getting some good initial reviews on the way to it’s November 20th release for PS3, PC and Xbox 360. Interestingly, the newest video “ICA File: Agent 47” released by IO Interactive looks at just who Agent 47, the protagonist of the game, is.
Revealed to need no training at all, and constantly having a successful mission completion rate, Agent 47 was assigned the task of killing his rogue handler Diana Burnwood. This is how the game starts off, but even after going through with it, the Original Assassin decides there’s more treachery afoot and investigates on his own.
Of course, the Agency doesn’t appreciate this one bit. The result? A kill order for all operatives on Agent 47’s head. And this is awesome because it means there’s a very likely chance that 47 will stop tackling with NYPD, SWAT Teams, strip club bouncers and others to tackle some real killers like himself.
