If you’ve ever played a Hitman game, you know Agent 47 doesn’t need a weapon to take down his enemies and contracts. He can pretty much always incapacitate targets with less conventional means. That said, it can still be a whole lot of fun to snipe two diplomats with one bullet, mow down a platoon of mercenaries with a heavy machine gun, or silently cap a sleeping military officer with .45 and escape into the night. With that in mind, IO Interactive brings you the latest in its line of Hitman: Absolution trailers, entitled “The Tools of the Trade.”[youtube id=”xw0W3QsPW8U?hd=1″ width=”620″ height=”360″]
The trailer shows off the game’s diversity, mentioning a handful 47’s trademark weapons, and presenting alternative measures for killing people. Did you catch the George Washington bust? Yeah, that’s a weapon (somehow). With brutal melee animations, gruesome headshots and downright disturbing stabbing-and-slicing weapons, Absolution looks to present countless beautiful ways to rid the world of your foes.
Play nice, now.
