Last week’s “Ultimate Assassin” trailer seemed as if it might be the last Hitman: Absolution trailer coming from Square Enix and IO Interactive before the game’s launch trailer. It covered all of the different aspects of the game and introduced the magical Agent 47 “instinct” powers. However, it seems that Square and IO are determined to try and keep Absolution in the minds of gamers who are busy with Assassin’s Creed III, Halo 4, or Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
Yet another trailer for Hitman: Absolution was released today, this one continuing the ICA (International Contract Agency) file trailer series. Previous ICA trailers detailed the enemies Agent 47 will encounter in Absolution, including the weapons baron Blake Dexter and The Saints (the sexy nuns). Today’s ICA file details Agent 47 himself, using the same motion comic style as the other trailers.
Judging from the trailer, it seems that Agent 47 has gone rogue, and is now playing by his own rules. The ICA has issued a kill order on the former agent, meaning all those other ICA agents will now be after the world’s best assassin.
