The upcoming Hitman game is undergoing Alpha testing, and some details and clips from the game have already leaked online. Reddit user AdequateShrimp posted a screenshot of the Alpha invitation he received for the PC version of the game alongside a screenshot showing the game downloading through his Steam client to prove the authenticity of his claims. His impressions of Hitman so far are as follows:

  • I find it to be closer to Blood Money than it is to Absolution so far
  • Uniforms play a much more important role in this game at least in this [Alpha] mission
  • Many path choices:
    -front entrance
    -climbing poles outside the building
    -climb outside a window and jump from window to window hanging from a ledge
    -go through the back underground staircases
    -garages
    -scaffolding ………and more
  • Interactive environments (firework displays, fire alarms, tampering with objects, poisoning food, hiding weapons in crates of food.
    – Multiple choices for tampering and it also requires tools to tamper with e.g. screwdriver, wrench
  • Loadouts are back (choose your suit, side weapon, specials – poisons lethal and non-lethal, bombs), suitcase weapon.
  • Side missions that can make your mission easier; disable the small stock exchange meeting, take somebody out so a main target has to take their place.
  • The game also doesn’t have that feeling Absolution had, which made it feel like a very linear game just with a couple of paths to get to the end.

Over on NeoGAF, a few users have posted some video game clips. However, they’re understandably of poor quality. But if you still want to have a look, head over here.

Hitman launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on December 8. For more on the game, check out our previous coverage.
