So this clip hit the web yesterday and here it is for you to watch:

thanks bro!

#3 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

Pretty sure IO put this up on their official account, so I don't think it leaked.

Oh well then I guess it wasn't leaked, but here it is anyway. ;)

I really like the lighting: It looks gorgeous at times and very moody and the new Glacier engine definitely pays off in that regard.

The Big crowd 47 disapears in, in the end of the clip, also looks awesome.

The only thing I really fear is that maybe it is a bit to scripted, but we will just have to wait and see.

Why does Agent 47 have Eagle Vision?

Hey that's totally original and fitting! All he needs is a batarang and a mark&execute feature, and it'd be the perfect (completely original) Hitman title.

Also, I'm not sure how I feel about the voice actor of 47 being changed.

#8 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

The game looks pretty good. So rest assured guys, they're gonna have a new engine for Kane and Lynch 3.

#9 Posted by Swoxx (3002 posts) -

Wait a minute, wasn't hitman banned?

#10 Posted by Contro (2040 posts) -

Thanks brer.

#11 Posted by Koshka (187 posts) -

Doesn't feel like a hitman game....

but damn I'm gonna play that.

#12 Edited by Aas (603 posts) -

Did this remind anyone else of Leon: The Professional?

Also; Inception horn?

#13 Edited by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

I would like to hear hitman's opinion of this game...oh wait....

#14 Posted by Tofford (532 posts) -

Nice Inception music guys. Looked cool except for the fact that he never talks when people approach him

#15 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

Also, anyone else getting sick of games doing the "chopper shooting at you through windows" sequence after Uncharted 2? This is the third or fourth game I've seen do this...

#16 Posted by Redbullet685 (6047 posts) -

That looked great! Great graphics, lighting, animation. Can't wait for this one.

#17 Posted by iAmJohn (6122 posts) -

Looks pretty good, actually.

#18 Edited by DougQuaid (1274 posts) -

Looks pretty good, but with all those scripted sequences, it makes it seem like that's the only outcome for that encounter.

#19 Posted by ikwal (225 posts) -

Looks very promising. I love stealth action games and the "Inception horns" at the end there was pretty awesome.

#20 Posted by BrainSpecialist (554 posts) -

@Castiel: You've made a mistake, this is clearly Splinter Cell: Conviction.

#21 Posted by deathstriker666 (1337 posts) -

God really? What's with all the stereotypical New York accents? Isn't this supposed to be Chicago? Ayyyyyyyyyyyyy, Faisano! Awwwww jeez! Ay, arn'tcha Fostuh? I thoughcha left da force a couple weeks ago?

#22 Posted by emem (1968 posts) -

Haha, the hippie who's trying to flush down the marihuana plant(s) made me laugh.

It's actually not exactly what I remember the Hitman games look and play like, but I guess after Uncharted and Assassins Creed being that successful it was the logical thing to do. It definitely looks very cool, I'll play it.

#23 Posted by dudeglove (7911 posts) -

What a load of fucking garbage. Thank you, IO, for ruining the best franchises in the history of video games. Congratulations on Sam Fishering the shit out of Agent 47. I hope you're happy.

*waits 10 years for the HD re-release of Blood Money*

#24 Posted by cikame (1007 posts) -

Looks good, hitman needed a change.

#25 Posted by Daiphyer (1338 posts) -

Hitman games have always been about having more than one (Hell, four, five) ways to do a mission. That seemed like the ONLY way to do the mission.

And that sucks.

#26 Posted by Vestigial_Man (311 posts) -

This looks like a game I would like to watch someone play. I'm not very good at stealth games and almost none of the first section is the way I would have done it. It looks really good but I don't think I could play it.

#27 Edited by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

Graphics/art style look pretty cool but the gameplay looks exactly like Splinter Cell Conviction, and I've had enough of that. 
 
Also it looks way too linear for a Hitman game.

#28 Posted by RiotBananas (3600 posts) -

Sure is Splinter Cell: Conviction in here.

#29 Posted by Portis (1287 posts) -

Very pretty looking game, that's for sure.

#30 Posted by FritzDude (2263 posts) -

No David Bateson this time? or maybe it's temporarily. But anyway, I hope this is just the tutorial level or something because this is like a Batman/Conviction game, and not representative of a real Hitman game, and i'm not sure how i feel about the "see through walls/detective mode". Too early to say at this point i guess, but the sound and art style for the Glacier 2 engine is outstanding.

#31 Posted by dudeglove (7911 posts) -

Can't not post these.

#32 Posted by SlashDance (1818 posts) -

That's not the Hitman I asked for but it looks pretty damn cool nonetheless. It's clearly a guided demo though so let's not judge the linearity of the game just yet.

#33 Posted by Master_Funk (734 posts) -

That looks cool, but I sincerely hope that they maintain the contract killing structure mixed in with these types of sequences.

#34 Posted by RiotBananas (3600 posts) -
@dudeglove: Those are fucking amazing.

Splinter Cell : Conviction Asylum. AMIRITE?

More like Hitman: Absolute Sell Out.
#37 Edited by Manhattan_Project (2159 posts) -

Yes, freak out over one section that is clearly designed to show off new stuff. Yep.

#38 Posted by GentlemanlyGentleman (320 posts) -

Oh no. I'm not angry at IO, just disappointed.

Neither Bateson is providing the voice talent for 47, nor is Jesper Kyd writing the score. Absolution is not Hitman. This is Splinter Cell Conviction re-skinned.

RIP Agent 47

Really? After one video the new Hitman game is shit? Come on guys, this is pretty ridiculous. Makes me wish that games wouldn't be shown to the general public before release, but unfortunately it doesn't work like that. I'd hate for the developers to see threads like this, because it must be so disheartening if not just plain annoying.

What if this was just the first level designed to get players used to the game? Ugh, just whatever. Losing faith in the forum community.

This pretty much sums it all up.

#43 Posted by easthill (351 posts) -

Holy shit. With every new game there's a metric ton of hate. God.

Let's boycott and cancel our pre-orders!

If you've never played Blood Money, you have no idea how ridiculous these 16 minutes look.

I have all of the Hitman games. It doesn't matter how different this one looks, it's too early to judge the entire game based on 16 minutes.

#46 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

Wow, I certainly didn't expect the negativity. But I guess pre-release fan-bullshit doesn't matter. If the game is good (like Deus Ex) the "fans" will come around.

#47 Edited by Castiel (2637 posts) -

@dudeglove: That's pretty fuckin' amazing. :D

Oh man, really? That's a bummer. Duder didn't talk much, but still. Why didn't they get the same guy.

Calling it shit already is pretty stupid i agree, but the fact is that they're showcasing something for another audience. It's obvious that they're trying to get more people onboard with this, but at the same time they're pushing aside their fans because Hitman is quite opposite of what they're showcasing here, to an extent. It is normal for humans to act angry when they see something that doesn't fit the franchise they've played. Now with that said, this video doesn't necesarily mean that the full game will focus entirely on linear target approaching. And maybe the "detective mode" will be turned off when you increase to the professional difficulty setting. Who knows. As I mentioned in my previous post, and as you mentioned, It's too early to say.

What I can say at this point though is that the new Glacier 2 engine looks fantastic! And no David Bateson is sadening.

#50 Posted by PhatSeeJay (3322 posts) -

The beginning was dumb as hell. But I must admit the disguise gameplay seems quite interesting with how you have to time (I guess?) looking away when someone look towards you.

I was willing to write it off before but the latter part of this video certainly perked my curiosity again.
