EG Expo: Hitman Absolution – Get your Qs answered by IO

Friday, 23rd September 2011 07:12 GMT By Johnny Cullen

What do you want to know about Hitman Absolution? How much has IO refined in the game from Blood Money? What can you expect from the game as a long-time fan and a first-time player? And just how bald is 47 this time round? Can he even more balder?

We’re speaking to IO’s Hakan Abrak at Eurogamer Expo this afternoon. We’ve already spoken to game director Tore Blystad at gamescom, but what do you want to know about the game?

If you have any questions, stick them below in comments or tweet us your questions through @VG247 and @JohnnyCullen.

You need to get your questions in by 2:30pm today, as that’ll the be cut-off. So get to it.

Hitman Absolution launches next year for PS3, 360 and PC.

    Will a “kill Justin Bieber contract” be available as dlc? And if not, why not?

  2. PenTaFH

    How much will the game be story-driven? More or less than its predecessors?

    And, how long will the missions approximately take if you decide to go Silent Assassin?

    And, the two obvious ones: what are the plans for DLC, if any, and when can we expect to get our hands on this?

  10. OrbitMonkey

    Will their still be a rich vein of dark humour, or has It been removed to appease those who believe games for “grown-ups” should be oh so serious?

    Are you focusing to give players a more slow paced way of playing like the originals or this time around focusing to give a more fast paced run and fun fest?

    The new disguises feature sounds awesome, but apparently it’s all part of the Instinct mode and personally i really don’t want to be able to look through walls for enemies in a Hitman game.

    Will this disguises feature also be for the modes that don’t have instinct?

    If you endanger NPC’s will they panic, like in blood money, and pick up a weapon and attack 47?

    #14 3 years ago
  15. deathray-deathray

    will there be many female targets? Hitman always lacked them.

    I have a question about the pre-order bonuses of Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart. There is not a point to buy the same game from 3 different places so you could have all equipment available for the game… :/ So is there a possibility that those bonuses would come out as DLC’s, for example? I think i am not the only one who would appriciate that. I want to get EVERYTHING out of the game, and that requires those nice bonuses.
