Hitman: Absolution follows Agent 47, a cold-blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date.

    Key Features of Hitman: Absolution

    Here is a list of key features that will be available in IO Interactive’s Hitman: Absolution based on news and announcements made so far.

    IO Interactive have, so far, been very tight-lipped about Hitman: Absolution though some information has slipped through the net. These include:

    Voice Acting: David Bateson will not be voicing Agent 47 in Hitman Absolution and Vivienne McKee, who has voiced 47?s handler since the first installment, has been replaced by Marsha Thomason.

    Foes: The main antagonist is a man named Blake Dexter, a new character to the series. Little to no information has been shared regarding who he is, but the character will be voiced by Keith Carradine.

    Setting: At least one portion of the game will take place in Chicago, but it has not been confirmed whether the rest of the game will take place in other cities, or even other countries.

    Multi-Player: The new title will feature an online or possibly multiplayer option – a first for the series!

    Take a look at the stunning cinematic teaser trailer!
