Hitman: Absolution contains a villain by the name of Blake Dexter, who is not only a twisted and formidable foe, but he is played by actor Keith Carradine in the game. Dexter is the cowboy hat wearing fella who pretty much runs the town of Hope, North Dakota in a shady manner. Think of him as the town’s Brad Wesley from Road House and you get the idea. Check out his ICA File video below. Hitman: Absolution is scheduled for release across North America, Europe and PAL territories on November 20 on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Hitman: Absolution features asynchronous multiplayer, according to an announcement from IO Interactive at gamescom. Called Contracts, players can create their own scenarios, can pick out three characters on a level, choose the weapons, and challenge other players to “contract”. The faster the hits are made, the more money made. Weekly contracts will be added by the developer and earned money allows new scenarios with weapons and disguises. The mode is playable at gamescom and a video of the new mode will be released tomorrow. Thanks, Joystiq.
