Square Enix has released a new set of screenshots for Hitman: Absolution to commemorate the assassination game's appearance at E3 this week. These shots once again return to Hope, South Dakota, the sleepy town at the heart of one of the game's missions.
This town seems like an odd destination for an legendary hitman like Agent 47. He's the sort of guy who can sneak into a crime lord's compound or a military base. The fact that he's here in Hope suggests that this little town isn't quite as peaceful as it seems.
The screenshots offer a glimpse at the different tactics can adopt. You can don a disguise and try to blend in. You can also use quiet weapons like silenced pistols to take down enemies without raising an alarm. Or, if you're not into the whole subtlety thing, you can just pull out an assault rifle and start pumping rounds into anything that moves. The choice is yours, dear player.
Absolution will arrive in November. Pre-ordering it will earn you a standalone sniper challenge or bonus equipment.
