Hitman is waiting for you. How long will you resist its wiles?
This new trailer does a great job of explaining the Hitman journey for those new to the series or only familiar with Absolution, which didn’t highlight its strengths as well as past entries.
There’s the messy beginning, when you faff everything up royally. The gradual understanding of the possibilities of the sandbox as you explore. The growing desire to see just what you can do. And finally the challenge of truly living up to the Hitman fantasy with elegant executions.
Hitman’s a game that rewards replaying, and when your first elusive target pops up you’ll be glad you know the ropes. In that sense the episodic release has been really cool, because players have had plenty of time to check out each environment before moving on to the next. But hey, your game, your way: the whole slab of the first season can be yours digitally right now, or at retail on January 31.
