A 10 minute video was released featuring actual gameplay of Hitman: Absolution. A lot of the fears gamers had about the upcoming title are laid to rest as IO Interactive confirms that stages are still non-linear and taking out targets is ripe with optional kill zones.
The video comes courtesy of VG 24/7 who managed to get a lengthy walkthrough out of a member of the IO team who shows off the different aspects of gameplay, as well as using various professional and flashy methods for taking out opponents.
I especially liked the one where 47 leads the King of Chinatown into the room where he's sniffing coke and then cuts him down. It would make the thing look like he died in a drug deal gone bad. I'm curious if they will continue on what they established in Blood Money by having newspaper clippings of the hits after each hit, that would be pretty neat.
A lot of the gameplay still seems to be inherent to the classic Hitman gameplay mechanics, save for more atmospheric immersion, lots of more environmental ambiance and of course, a whole, whole, whole bunch of AI NPCs flooding the stages, which definitely helps bring the realism factor up a notch.
You can expect to see more of Hitman: Absolution during this year's E3. For more info feel free to visit the Official Website.
