Hitman: Absolution Officially Teased In Trailer

May 10, 2011 Written by Anthony Severino

Square Enix has just updated the official website for the Hitman series with an all-new, never-before-seen teaser trailer for the upcoming fifth installment in the Hitman franchise, Hitman: Absolution.

Hardened assassin, Agent 47, will me his long-awaited return in Hitman: Absolution. The game’s first-ever teaser trailer has been posted this morning. The video is rather short and doesn’t reveal much of anything. Although the official site provides this short blurb:

HITMAN ABSOLUTION follows Agent 47, a cold blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he trusted and hunted by the police, he finds himself at the centre of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world, in his search for the truth.

With E3 less than one month away, more information is just around the corner.

Hitman: Absolution is the fifth game in the long-running franchise. Agent 47 was last seen on the PlayStation 2 back in 2006 in Hitman: Blood Money. In 2007 a movie based on the Hitman series was released, and also featured Agent 47, but was so bad we’d prefer to forget all about it (it was really that awful). Hopefully this new Hitman title, Hitman: Absolution, can restore the series’ success.

We’ll bring you more information on the game as it is unveiled.
