Like extras from Bill’s Deadly Viper Assassination Squad in Tarantino’s classic Kill Bill, the Saints fall upon Agent 47 in this pre-E3 trailer of Hitman: Absolution. Don’t expect to see any in-game footage, but do expect to witness plenty of violence as Agent 47 gets up close and personal.
Not that Agent 47 has it all his own way, taking his fair share of cuts and bruises as he sets about dispatching his would-be assailants one at a time in Visual Works’ CGI short.
Hitman: Absolution will be at this year’s E3 so expect to hear lots more in the coming days, for now feast your eyes on what I’m hoping will be a part of the game we’ll get to experience first-hand in the game as its 20th November release date approaches.
