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.

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

Did this remind anyone else of Leon: The Professional?

Also; Inception horn?

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

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...

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sure is Splinter Cell: Conviction in here.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
