Get the Lowdown on Agent 47’s Background in New Hitman: Absolution Trailer

IO Interactive and Square Enix continue their trailer-heavy streak with yet another Agent 47-centric video, this time detailing the assassin’s past.

If you haven’t played any of the prior entries in the Hitman franchise, but are interested in checking out Absolution, the clip below is a great way to get you up to speed on the series’ iconic hairless protagonist. For those of you that have played the earlier games, I’m sure you’ll find that the trailer provides a nicer refresher.

Hitman: Absolution launches in just over a week’s time on November 20th for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Judging by what we’ve seen of the game thus far, Agent 47’s latest outing stands a good chance of being his greatest yet.
