So... Danish...

Damn that was pretty awesome - all those lines of dialog!

Posted by ColdPhone

It's like Little Big Planet's level creator, except it's got less cute sack things and more, uh...murdering people.

Posted by Shtinky

That's a really long video title.

Posted by Undiddley

Hippies don't have discos! They have comunist farms with free-loving cows and chickens and shit.

You know that, dontcha?

Posted by Pseudonymous

I've been waiting for this game for 6.5 years... Where have you been IO? Don't ever leave me again...

Edited by SamuraiSeppuku

Can't wait.

This is the closest I've been to 1.

Looks awesome. I am glad that I have this bad boy preordered. xD

Odd, first age gate I've ever had on giantbomb. In any case Absolution is looking great and any worries I had from the reveal of this game and level(linearity and such) have been washed away.

Posted by clank543

They are showing A LOT of this game. What is this now, 4 levels? I haven't watched any other than the 50's town walkthrough posted a little while back. I like the transparency,but they might want to hold a little back.

Edited by ricochetguro

@clank543: The 2nd contract takes place in the latter half of the first level which was the subject of the orignal reveal. Seems like in contracts mode it splits the levels into segments. They've only shown off two other levels (King of Chinatown and Streets of Hope)

Cool! I wanted something like this while I was playing through Blood Money a few years ago.

Posted by Patman99

My favourite part was that the one hippie was so stressed out trying to flush down one little plant while there was an entire farm in the next room over.

Posted by jasius

First few contracts and many others will just be to simple and glitched to get the inevitable achievement/trophy maybe a few people will actually try and make a real contract that works.

Posted by JackOhara

Sig does make 1911 pistols but 47 uses the no longer in production AMT hardballers. The quality of the hardballers in real life is actually pretty poor, especially compared to modern equivalents like Kimbers, Colts, Ed Browns etc.

Posted by poheroe

fun fun fun.

Posted by mdnthrvst

The way he holds the Silverballer all open-fisted just sold me on this game itself

Posted by Brodehouse

GODDAMMIT that is the best Simpsons reference I've seen in at least two months.

Posted by Meltac

Can't... wait... anymore

Posted by AngelN7

The last contract was rad and the creation tool is simple enough to not be boring making those contracts so that's good.

Posted by sublime90

this game is going to be sickkkkk braaaaa

These walkthroughs have done wonders. I thought this game was gonna be shite looking at the trailers.

Posted by Roger778

That was an awesome trailer.

The contracts mode looks like a virtual sandbox in that you have many ways to kill your contracts, and it lets you choose how you want to do it.

I think that's really cool.

Posted by AbsolutHysteria

Absolutely Fantastic. Exactly what a sequel should be

This makes me want to go back and do a hitman marathon

For a long time Contracts didn't have a digital version that was being sold, it's no where to be found. Recently I could have sworn I saw that it was finally available from greenman or GoG... but looking around I still don't see it. Do you know maybe where it's being sold again? Or anyone else? It's a great entry in the franchise and it sucks it doesn't exist on the PC in digital download form.

Posted by Conciliator

Gotta say, this looks fuckin great. Way to go devs.

Posted by Th3_James

I can't wait for this game.

Posted by vinsanityv22

Hoping IO Interactive can make a good game again. That stupid "Kane & Lynch" franchise, that no one ever wanted or liked, nearly ruined their reputation. Mini Ninjas was fun though, and now Hitman Absolution looks good. Crossing my fingers.

Posted by Sonny009

this is a pretty sweet idea for a little extra fun out of an intense looking game. HERE HERE!

Posted by Jayzz

I've got 18 minutes.... but.. I don't want to spoil ANYTHING. I've loved the Hitman games like a brutha, I cannot wait until november... :D

I got it pre-ordered for only 44$.. so good.. and sniper challenge is fun! Again, cannot wait.

Posted by CaptRocketblaze

@JackOhara: Sure, but "Sig Sauer power" sounds awesome.

Posted by ThePantheon

One of my most anticipated games this year.

Posted by das9000

@DJJoeJoe:Well if you can't find it legitimately, then you know ... there are always less than legitimate ways of getting it off the internet.

Posted by RuN

Awesome feature. Totaly picking this up

Posted by idlehands

It's been a while since I've played Blood Money, but this feels so different compared to its predecessors. I don't know if it's just this particular game play, but it seems to rely on sneaking around with cover based system much more than disguises. Also disguises that isn't really disguises and require a timed skill to blend? I mean it kinda makes sense but feels like a whole different mechanic.

And then Eagle Vision a la Assassin's Creed? Is the big reveal at the end game going to tell us 47 is a clone of Altair's descendant? Also what the hell are the AI's doing? They're less of an obstacle and more of a spectacle, a scenery to decorate the kill. The areas shown also feels rather linear and uninteresting as opposed to the open, various routes offered from the previous games.

Contract mode looks interesting, but everything else seems boring and disengaging. I hope there's more to the game than what I see.

Posted by vinsanityv22

With Dishonored and Hitman Absolution coming out this year, I REALLY hope Assassin's Creed 3 isn't the best selling of this year's assassin games. It is, by far, the most boring and least ambitious looking one of the three. Dishonored has such a great, original world, cool style and all those powers. Hitman is far more robust, looks better and has this creative 'Contracts' mode that will yield a ton of replayability. AC3 is just more AC, of which there are already like 17... but set in the stupid, bland era of American colonization. *yawn*

Come on gamers. Make the right choice this holiday season. Don't just buy your 4th or 5th Assassin's Creed game.

The more I see it, the more I want it!

Posted by DJJoeJoe

@das9000: Right, sometimes I like owning things though. I'm a good little consumer and I definitely have that drive to have my Steam list reflect the games I approve of even if I've not played some of them since buying them :) I can't remember if I've downloaded Contracts in the past, I've played it on whatever console it released on though (xbox or 360? time decays memories). If I could own it on PC though, that would be super rad.

The bummer to most of the older Hitman games is they are terrible on PC, they don't support things like RESOLUTIONS and what not. I've devoted hours upon hours trying to just get the games to support widescreen, and what little info and tools did exist 5-6 years ago are long dead now, makes me wish I could code cause I'd fuckin' rip into those old games and get them properly supported for modern resolutions and aspect ratios.

Posted by Incapability

I love seeing people pop a vein whenever there's new Hitman footage.

"IT'S NOT THE OLD GAMES WHAT THE FUCK!" - when in fact most of them have obviously not played the old games, and to a large extent, not really gotten what was going on.

Posted by Agent47CSim2

@Incapability: Who popped a vein in this thread? As far as I can see everyone is super pumped now we've seen the actual game and not the awful marketing attempts.

Posted by Funky_Pasta_Tommy

I am never going to stop playing this game.

Only thing that worries me is 47 no longer seems to pull weapons out of his giant blazer pocket. Little asthetic touch I'm hoping just isnt in early builds, but 47 getting his weapons MGS style out of thin air isnt as cool as his bad ass manner of withdrawing a pistol and headshotting some chump.

Still, only minor gripe of a series I've been waiting to see return for so god damn long!

Looks really neat!

Watching someone else play the game is obviously different than playing yourself, give the game a chance. They're probably playing the game on Easy difficulty and breezing through,that would explain your feeling of boredom and disengagement. The beauty of "Hitman" games are the options, and I see plenty of those.

Linearity has always been there and this game looks more open to me (except Contracts mode).

Locations... Check

Weapons... Check

Target/s... Check

Looks like a Hitman game to me, except I have not seen any game play videos where they switched to 1st Person camera. I'm assuming It doesn't exist in Absolution.

Now , how you get to your target and how you subdue or kill his subordinates along the way is all on you. 100's if not 1000's of possibilities

I Threw up in my mouth a little bit when I saw you mentioned AssAssin's "Boring and Repetitive" Creed in a Hitman post...
