Hitman Absolution level tweaked due to earlier controversy
Oh hey guys, remember the Hitman Absolution nun controversy? Yeah, where people made a big deal out of nothing? Guess what? The developers have tweaked the level and have changed it for good. It’s nice to influence creative process like that, isn’t it?
But thankfully, it’s not that big of a tweak, with players been given context over who the women are to create some sort of attachement to these females.
“One way to go about that level is to go in all-guns blazing, but of course, it’s not the smartest way. We learned from the trailer that we really needed to give these characters some context and some backstory. We’re working within the game – within that level – to build these characters up before you meet them,” game director Tore Blystad told Eurogamer.
“We were surprised by the reaction to it. We’ve been trying to find out, y’know, how could we not see this happening? If we knew it would get such a negative reaction we would have done it in a different way.”
“The game is inspired by Grindhouse-style movies, so for us the trailer was natural way to deal with that subject matter. We hope when people play it they have fun with it. The Saints fit into that somewhere, but it is a more extreme level in the game than others.”
