May 1, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

The upcoming installment in the Hitman franchise appears to be shaping up to be the best entry yet, and the latest trailer for the game only serves to add even more fuel to the hype train.

The video, appropriately dubbed “Introducing Agent 47” gives gamers a detailed look at the Absolution’s protagonist. Those hoping to see more gameplay footage will be particularly pleased, as the clip is chock-full of intense moments clearly ripped right out of various levels from the game. From massive explosions to brutal takedowns, there’s plenty of action to have you salivating for a full two and a half minutes.

Judging by the trailer, it looks like gamers will have two options in how to tackle each situation, using either a stealthy “slip in and out” strategy, or a more violent, murderous approach.

Hitman: Absolution is being developed by IO Interactive and is scheduled for release later this year. Let us know whether or not Square Enix has you sold on the game in the comments below.
