This trailer looks pretty awesome, and please remember it isn't indicative at all of what the game play will look like. I bet this is just to showcase that now somebody is hunting Agent 47.

What if they did make it like this? And it was super-serious about it.

If that was the case they should give it a different name, make it a new IP.  Since this is Hitman sequel, there is expectation that there will be Hitman gameplay and Hitman tone.  Burly brawl is not Hitman tone.  Burly brawl was what you had to do as punishment for playing poorly in the previous games,.

As long as this game is split up offers open ended gameplay allowing me to come up with creative ways to approach targets then this game will be great.

@ILuvMsMarvel: Was just thinking the same thing xD

Extreme violence against women is totally cool if they are dressed as slutty nuns trying to kill you. Totally cool.

That trailer was a lot better when I wasnt listening to the audio.

I find it interesting that majority of the comments are saying that this looks like shit and apparently nobody noticed the International Contract Agency tattoos the "nuns" had. Obviously they are all assassins (actually they remind me more of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad), possibly hinting towards a similar thing to the rival assassins in Blood Money.

Except the rival assassins in Blood Money weren't kung-fu latex bondage nuns.

In Hitman 2 weren't you working for a priest? Maybe this somehow ties into that.

can't speak for everyone, but i certainly didn't find this shit offensive because i couldn't grasp its proper place in the hitman canon. they're appealing to the caveman inside of you, and you're lapping it up.

What the fuck is this shit?

The whole 'They are assassins! This is totally awesome!' argument kind of falls apart when you notice they are wearing stiletto platform heels. What kind of moron 'Professional Assassin' would think that a. Having your entire hit team just walk across the parking lot in the most obvious getup possible, and b. wearing clothes that are next to impossible to fight in, would be a good idea?

^ Also relevant. Apparently the first games had too much freedom and trail-and-error, need to streamline that shit.

Jesus, that looked like an April fools joke.

Hitman: Advent Children -- coming to theaters near you this holiday season.

@wrecks: To be fair, extreme violence against anyone is totally cool if they're trying to unjustly murder you. Their sex has nothing to do with it.

That being said, I have no idea what Eidos' folks were thinking. Regardless if they were trying to murder agent 47, I don't see why the latex nun gettup was necessary.

*insert witty comment regarding current hatred for unreleased game based on trailer with no gameplay*

Is the Original Assassin line a dig at Assassins Creed 3?

Posted by tourgen

I don't know. This seems like it lines up with the whole reason I play video games in the first place. Looks great I'm in.

Posted by Abendlaender

Nice CGI, wait what did I just watch? Is this seriously Hitman? And not like, some weired japanese game?

Posted by Schmollian

So this trailer would be the most amazing thing in the world... IF it wasn't for a Hitman game...

Posted by JEC03

I like it that there not afraid to push buttons the violence is over the top but it looks fun as shit.

Edited by Razpuiten

What possible explanation is there for them wearing sexy nun outfits?

Like what if they had killed him with the rocket launcher and then their just standing in a parking lot wearing outfits and makeup that they spent hours putting on. I want someone from the marketing team to give me a logical reason.

Hey hey hey, 47... Remember the rules:

"No women, no kids."

Sexy nuns are sexy. Sexy nuns get their faces smashed in... less sexy...

Yeah, they looked really helpless while rearranging his jaw.

Edited by Gaspar

Eight assassins trained to kill with maximum efficiency.

Sixteen high-heel pump boots.

Yeah... I'm thinking top G.O.T.Y. contender.

It's funny because this trailer contains none of the things that make Hitman awesome.

Not true. It had Agent 47 and piano wire kills. The rest is questionable.

Edited by TheGorilla

Wow. I was interested in this game, but now I don't think there is any way I'll play it. That was awful.

I won't buy it no matter what, even if it ends up being a GOTY contender. If you're going to put such sexist shit in your trailer I'm not giving you my money no matter what.

Posted by goatmilk

Wait so Johnny Gat is the hitman now?

Posted by Kingloo

So, hang on...

Is 47 killing these ... lovely ladies ... a huge game spoiler? Or is it irrelevant to the story?

If it is irrelevant it seems a little odd to make an entire trailer about them.

Posted by CouncilSpectre

Hitman is a hard habit to break.

Posted by Szlifier

The guy was choking a nun, if you know what I mean.

Posted by louiedog

I really hope that despite every single piece of marketing I've seen for this game, that it's still the Hitman that I want.

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

complete and utter shit.

Posted by SmilingPig

I was excited about this game... not any more.

Posted by beeftothetaco

I might have to get this game now

Edited by SmilingPig

Noting sexyer than an nun!

Posted by Strife777

I find this pretty awesome. Hitman always had some goofy scenarios every once and then, so whatever. Make it a little crazy if you have to sometimes.

Also, I might be the only one, but I think this is some pretty stellar CG.

Posted by AuthenticM

I approve of this trailer.

Posted by Eselhut

What

Posted by DarkbeatDK

I think it looks brilliant, but it seems like the majority of people want Hitman to be very, very serious.

Edited by Encephalon

...This does not look like the Hitman that the guys were talking about on the Bombcast.

Edited by jbrady

honestly, hitman games have always had this side to them. there is a sex dungeon or brothel level in every one of them(i think). you're putting the bar too high if this trailer really surprises and disappoints you.

Posted by Parsnip

It's almost like they are trying to make me not want the game.
 
Nice try IO, nice try. I'll get your game no matter how hard you try to turn me off of it.
 
Or maybe it's reverse psychology.

Posted by Yawnster

I can understand being put off by the action-y nature of this trailer, but the people complaining about the nuns makes me question whether or not some of you guys have ever played Hitman games.

As people said earlier, Jabba the Hut, assassins in bird suits, rednecks, etc.

Posted by supermonkey122

I don't get it.
