Nice!

Edited by Akyho

17 minutes? I hope its more stealth than action.

Indeed a stealth run of absolutely awesomeness. Best Hitman Absolution so far!!

Supplemental. it is a pre-beta and game play looks great just at that.

Posted by Fearbeard

Awesome... this definitely still looks like a Hitman game. Can't wait.

Now stop bitching about the nuns!

Looks great. Can't wait to get my hands on this when it arrives this fall.

Posted by ThePhantomStranger

This looks fantastic!

Looks freaking awesome. Love the music after he does his instinct kills, so ominous!

Posted by solidwolf52

17 minutes for a pretty imperfect play though seems solid. I cant to take ours to figure out how to do the missions on silent assassin.

Posted by Redbullet685

Whenever I see stuff about the Nuns, I cringe. Whenever they show playthroughs of missions, I can't wait to get my hands on it. Hopefully there won't be a lot of the gun nuns in the game.

"He's not a target, we need to kidnap him" 47 does seem to think otherwise, judging by the last seconds.

I will watch this. I will.

Posted by blacklab

Seems pretty great...lots of options and ways to 'come back' from mistakes. I picked up Blood Money recently and the fail states are so darn absolute, it gets kind of frustrating.

Looks great.

Oh no guys, remember, how that nuns trailer ruined the game, how it's SO awful. Man that marketing trailer oh no .. oh ...oh no so bad.. game is so bad where is the stealth... they ruined Hitman..

I know it's in the interest of momentum to have 47 automatically switch clothing like that, but considering how far they appear to be going with all these little details, It feels outdated and kind of jarring. Even if they just did a quick fade out, fade in when changing disguises, I think it would preserve some the immersion without hurting the gameplay too much.

This gameplay video, as well as the inclusion of Purist mode, shows me that the devs are committed to making a good Hitman game as well as addressing the common complains people had about it. I will get this.

Posted by Zimbo

Alright, I'm excited again. Stop messing with my feelings IO.

Posted by Incapability

Cue the outrage of the so-called Hitman "fanbase" - I AM OUTRAGED THAT IO DECIDED TO MAKE A NEW GAME, RABBLE RABBLE etc.

Posted by pyrodactyl

must.....resiste...the urge to watch........aaaaaaaaaaah *breaks computer*

Posted by natetodamax

I'm going to avoid watching this. I'm pretty set on getting the game so I'd rather not spoil anything for myself.

My god, they've done it. I was convinced by their Chinatown walkthrough, but with all the disguises, open levels, and traps here I'm sold!

Posted by MightyDuck

I've never played a hitman game, but this looks like a lot of fun.

Posted by the_r0n1n_named_47

sweet cant wait :) it seems to be a dramatic change from bloodmoney

Posted by Tennmuerti

As a Hitman fan i'm loving this.

Will be fun trying to Silent Assassin this stuff on Purist.

Preordered.

Posted by PillClinton

Holy hell this looks good. Back on board.

Posted by kpaadet

Looks really good, I hope most of the levels are open world like this.

Posted by Dahitman

Faith restored.

Posted by corganmurray

I got so caught up watching this video that I was shocked when it ended. This looks incredible!

Posted by WaffleConed

this game looks soooooo badass

Edited by ch3burashka

They've really got to do something about the costume changes - it was janky in the previous games, but they have a chance to remedy that. I'd settle for a MGS4-esque active camo effect that changes your suit to their suit, even if it doesn't really make sense within the game world. Of all current games, Hitman is one of the most game-y, so it could make something like that work.

Also, I totally love the "instinct shooting" that's been featured in a few games before, like Splinter Cell, but while it looks cool and makes you feel powerful, it's basically a win button that makes the game too easy and goes against the puzzle approach of Hitman. I guess it's an option I won't be using.

I ain't gonna watch this since I'm already disappointed in myself for spoiling the entire Chinatown mission. But the resounding positivity coming from the comments is all I need to see!

Edited by PrivateIronTFU

Holy crap, this looks great.

Posted by GERALTITUDE

Wow, super impressive. Game looks awesome but how many levels could there be if they're all so detailed?

Also, some weird logic: The first target is on a phone, but the person at the other end thinks nothing of their choking death or the line going dead. The third target is crushed by a car in the shop, but the cops don't think it's weird that a mechanic walks out?

Hate to nitpick, but they're clearly trying hard to make these systems feel "real," and the realer the systems seem, the more frustrating it is as a player to run into Game Walls, so to speak.

Hitman Blood Money is horribly underrated.

Posted by jbrady

I told you not to worry when the nun trailer came out. you see that band-aid on the back of his head? that's priiide fuckin' with you. Fuck Pride. that shit only hurts...

Posted by Grimhild

I'm really glad they have escalating, dynamic alert levels for each individual NPC, as explained with the cop and the radio, instead basically having a "setalertmode = true" type of thing where the AI are all apparently telepathic. F*cking hate that.

Edited by squirrelnacho

The "instinct mode" should be labeled easy mode, and the default should have that all removed. Those features are for people who can't stand to play anything thats not a linear action game. That is not what Hitman is about.

The levels still seem sort of small with with less challenging objectives. Still need to see if the levels are really as big as the old Hitman games. A lot of the obviously new fans here have no perspective on this.

The music sounds generic and pretty bad without the old composer Jesper Kyd, just generic suspense music. Additionally, they are just reusing the Blood Money Hitman theme now (something they never did before) which is pretty lame, they always had nearly all new music in each game before.

The old voice actor was a much better fit as well.

Otherwise it looks like it has many of the elements of an old Hitman game. Without the old voice actor and composer it's missing some important elements. Hopefully the gameplay and level design holds up.

This is a first day purchase for me, and I haven't bought a video game in over a year.

I never understood why they didn't just have 47 go off-camera then reappear with the disguise on.

This is my most anticipated game of 2012

Posted by Parsnip

Lets hope people will now shut the fuck up about the nuns.

Posted by sublime90

this looks awesome. will be pre ordering

Posted by MasonL87

OK, you got me. That looks like loads of fun.

Edited by Dixego

Take that, people who bashed the trailers!

On a separate note, where's 47's neck barcode?

Posted by beepmachine

@GERALTITUDE: Yeah I thought the same thing. Also when he walks out of the garage while a fucking huge explosions goes off, and the cop looks at him like "Hey...that guy looks odd...probably nothing...definitely not the kinda guy who would set off a bomb."

Scrubbed off to be replaced with a QR code, surely?

Posted by Greenshoes

They could have just released a screenshot of that last kill, and the look on 47's face would have sold me on this game.

Not Lenny!! NOT LENNY!!!

Also, this looks fantastic.
