Great, this is a central feature of the game. Most nuns don't even dress like that any more. Really sad to see this is the direction IO has decided to take the game in.

Oh no...

Really?

Who said dysentery doesn't strike twice?

Um...we have to run away right now before we're all associated with this.

Posted by JuggaloAcidman

Is this a joke? How has hitman come to this? I blame the movie!

Posted by clank543

That Chinese level was so cool, and then these nuns seem so dumb. They don't even look like they're part of the same game.

So this is really just an elaborate Saints Row joke, right?

Posted by Jack_Lafayette

Guys, underlining the absurdly pointless exploitative outfits you have your characters wearing does not make the absurdly pointless exploitative outfits interesting from a narrative perspective. Thought you should know.

Posted by The_tato

Wait... so, that part at the end where they are all KIA. Does that happen in game, or just in this motion comic? Are we going to play through the part everyone got up in arms about, or deal with the aftermath?

Where's Johnny Gat?

Posted by Tolkienfanatic

Why is everyone so up in arms about this? How is it any different than MGS4's BB Corps?

Posted by SgtGrumbles

I feel like people who think this sort of shit is new to Hitman haven't played a Hitman game for a long time, or any Hitman.

Why are people suddenly saying it's too much, it's always been an embarrassing part of the franchise, I'm happy people are starting to call them out for it but why didn't anyone get annoyed about the Heaven and Hell women or the busty Santa ladies or the meat party etc etc… is it a case of the specific past audience of players getting older or bandwagon ignorance of previous games?

Posted by MrGtD

Hey, you guys know dumb stuff like this has been in every Hitman, right?

It says they were KIA in the video, so what happened in the last video, and only one is alive. So the game will only have the one fetish nun voiced by Vivica A. Fox.

It has to be, right? There's no way it's an accident, anyways.

I was about to ask the same thing.

He's the leader of the Saints now, and Agent 47 is aiding the 3rd Street Saints after their leader got word of Gat's appearance in Stillwater a few months back.  With the Los Carnales, no less.
 
This is supposed to be an in-between story preceding Saints Row 4.

crap

Why introduce us to characters if you're just going to tell us they're going to die?Makes no sense

Posted by MikkaQ

Oh, so they're the 3rd St. Saints disguised as Battle Nuns, that makes sense. So this is a crossover, nice.

Posted by madhotch

Hitman is at it's best when its being bananas. I recall dressing like a clown and killing BIRD ASSASSINS. Get the fuck over the nuns.

Posted by TadThuggish

help, i'm shitting myself

Edited by MeatSim

I know past games have had women in fetish outfits but assassin nuns are a bit too much.

Posted by Efesell

I agree that this is dumb and all but some of you have got to stop thinking this is some recent and new betrayal of the series.

Posted by dox

Dumb!

Posted by Zarile3

Did anyone actually watch the video?

It shows that they were all KIA, and at the end they show one of them is still alive. More likely than not they will have that one "Nun" going after Agent 47 at some point in the game....I doubt it will be a bunch of Nuns.

Posted by Crelio

Talk about a drawn out jumble of uninteresting comic panes. This looks like a storyboard, not targeted at all. Just show him snapping some nun necks.

Posted by VierasTalo

I NEVER ASKED FOR THIS

Posted by Beaudacious

Since when has Hitman been a serious game. It has always been a goofy plot, with goofy targets, and goofy situations.

My guess is that most people getting angry have never actually played through a Hitman game, and are simply jumping on the bandwagon.

Posted by Efesell

Also I think the Heaven/Hell party was way worse than battle nuns anyway.

Yea. He killed them all in that cinematic. Although in this video you can see the leader survived. I assume she's going to come back as a boss fight later? Still I'm not liking this new direction. I blame how things have been going recently with gaming.

Posted by Chop

Well, Hitman 2 had fucking ninjas, so....

Edited by Lotus

This again? first the oversexualization of agent 47 in the first trailer (bathroom scene), now, humiliating him with pre order costumes, why. Also, why there are only woman in this trailer?, men can be badasses too, come on! I don't feel represented in this video...

Posted by billyhoush

So are they going to clone that nun and you fight nun clones?

Edited by SmilingPig

About time that nun's get their own game.

At least the assassin had a good excuse to dress up that time! She was blending in at a weird corporate sex party! Yeah, it's an immature excuse, I'm not entirely convinced I'd rather just have them play dress up as nuns for no reason, though. Just not a fan of the whole Tarantino/Rodriguez direction it looks like they're going in.

Posted by Game_Baron

@Beaudacious: Agreed.

Posted by SASnake

@hardindr: you know this kinda stuff is in all Hitman games right? Also they arent real nuns...can clearly say it says they are into fetish. I hate how people react like this as if the Heaven and Hell mission, or even the meat slaughter party never happened in the other Hitman games....

Saints Row 4: The Original Saints.

Posted by Atom

I wonder if the entirety of them know where it's at.

And whether or not they're interested or not in the attire medical professionals wear inside hospitals.

Posted by Krystal_Sackful

I fully support everything about this super dumb thing.

How is it anything like that?

Personally this whole nun thing doesn't bother me, but comparing this to MGS is a very odd comparison.

Have you people even played Hitman?Does anybody remember Eve?The "angel assassin" from Dance with the devil?She wore nothing but a one peice cloth around her whole body and angel wings.She would do crazy back flips and jump all around until she got close enough to stab you with a stilleto.

Yeah this isn't really much of a far cry from that. In fact they wore less clothes in Blood Money. I don't get what you guys "think" is Hitman. Maybe you just have assumptions from what people told you or what you've seen in trailers.

Posted by Cybexx

It was revealed during E3 that the trailer was based on a mission from the game. I don't feel this is too out-of-character for the series but I expected marketing to change their tactics and focus on something else after the blowback they received from the trailer, guess the marketing ship doesn't turn it just goes deeper.

Those girls you mentioned in the previous games were whores. They were ladies of the night, strippers, women paid to dress skimpy to get off rich businessmen. That fits with the context of those levels and to the point of gratuity the creators were lambasting.

In this game, these "nuns" are an elite group of sexy assassins, fully capable with all manner of firearm, who also happen to wear a bunch of leather-tight fetish gear for absolutely no reason as underlined in this trailer (quite fucking literally). It's the precise opposite of what appeared in previous games.

There is no character to this, even though the creators are doing their damnedest to wash us in "character" with this trailer as a response to the general backlash. It feels like some cheap, pathetic, gamer version of a bad Charlie's Angels rip-off.

HOWEVER

With all that said, it looks like they killed them all off (which is unsurprising as that one nun was pointing a Goddamn RPG point-blank at a car), and are leaving just one, which will probably be plenty from a story stand-point. With Ms. Fox doing the character as well, perhaps there will be some credence. I suppose we will see.

Comments of this Hitman game in the last couple of months have shown that people dont know what Hitman is or played a few missions from Blood Money and think this approach is weird and out of place

They dont know in the first Hitman game you are murdering inferior clones and in Contracts you begin the mission in a Asylum with most of those clones murdered about

THIS TRAILER REALLY MAKES ME WANT TO PROTECT HITMAN.

Eve was an assassin who dressed in angel fetish clothes and got off on killing people, so...

Exactly, I'm not sure you know what lambasting means, there's no tonal difference between the titilation they included in previous games and this. To say the 'whores' and whoever fit with the levels or tone of the game doesn't defend the way they modelled and portrayed them before, they still chose to put the levels in those locations which is exactly the same tonally as what they are currently doing, its the same.
