Square Enix announces Hitman Absolution with teaser

Square Enix just announced and released the first teaser trailer for Hitman Absolution. Watch it below.

The clip is literally a tease, showing Agent 47 applying a suppressor as well as a snake wrapped around a gun. The latest chapter in the Hitman series has been teased since last year, with IO saying last week that it had “incoming shrapnel,” for this week. This was it, obviously.

According to Square, Agent 47 will be taking on his “most dangerous contract to date.”

Betrayed by those he once trusted, he is sought by the police, and has been thrust into the center of a conspiracy where me must embark on a “personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.”

“For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the Hitman fantasy,” said Tore Blystad, game director at IO Interactive. “This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience from other Hitman games; something our silent assassins will relish, as will all those new to the Hitman world.”

Hitman Absolution was built using IO’s new proprietary Glacier 2 technology, and is scheduled for release in 2012 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Square will be showing the title at E3 next month, via an invitation only screening.
