    Hitman is essentially a puzzle game and not a cover shooter. If the devs understood that then they wouldn't bother putting in a cover system as it has no place in a hitman game, the only reason you would put it in is if a bunch of suits turned up and said we want this game to be more action orientated, totally missing the point of what made the hitman series what it is.

    No, Hitman is a puzzle game where one of the solutions is to kill everything. That's why there are about 7 different shotguns in it.

    Cover system would make it much more fun to kill everyone, if that's what you wanted to do.

    As long as the style of the missions doesn't change, then the only reason not to want a cover mechanic is because you're worried you'd be too much of a girl to play it properly. :p

    Theres every reason to believe that the intrdocution of cover system would signal a shift in gameplay style as significant as it did in Splinter Cell. Because the view of gaming industry executives is that shooters are big money, the fact that previous Hitman games did have an array of weaponary makes it even more convenient to bastardise it, especially in light of the action oriented Hitman movie that has introduced the brand to a wider audience..

    No, there's not every reason to believe that.
    And I have a hard time believing that anybody watching the Hitman movie would think "Gee, this movie has really introduced me to the Hitman brand, I can't wait to play the next action game by Io Interactive!"

    Sure they will want to make more accessible and less "complicated", So traditionally with all games that had some type of gunplay (Tomb Raider, Res Evil, etc), they will take the gun aspect and magnify it. They will do this for Hitman, and they will take inspiration from Splinter Cell on how to transition from stealth game with guns, to gun game with stealth aspect, Until in future they make the complete transition to squad based FPS with motion control

    We have a title, "Hitman Absolution" which is a cool sub title.

    Anybody tried scanning the barcode from the end of the new trailer?

    You can scan it from here on your phone. Probably best not to do it on a work device though.

    This has better have multiplayer and a cover system otherwise I am not buying it.





    That is a joke by the way. I am a little worried about this one given IO's judgement on making a follow up Kayne and Lync game before the next Hitman.

    I rented Blood Money. I gave up on it a few missions in, realising that it was easier to murder everyone to begin with, rather than try to sneak around.

    Egads! Another shitty movie?? :(

    Also don't like the sound of this quote:

    They won’t follow the old Hitman games, but rather go with this newer direction.

    /is scared :(

    Ive got a bad feeling they are going to turn it into a tps ala Gears.

    I'm also worried about this.
    Is it also correct they are going to have another playable character? Sure I read that somewhere.

    Shit. Blood Money was a fluke, wasn't it?

    "The biggest challenge that we had with this game was to make it much broader in every sense, so that it was easier to play and more accessible, but still retain a very strong, hardcore side as well. We don't want to alienate any of our fans who have been extremely loyal for so many years."

    Sounds alright.
  • Deleted user 29 May 2011 10:55:43
    This is going to be shit. It won't be the same, I think they're going to go down the action route.
  • Deleted user 29 May 2011 10:55:58
    I don't get the problem with a game being described as easier to play more accessible by the developers. A large part of the Hitman games' problems have been that they are harder work to make it do what you're trying to do than they should be - and I'm not talking about the game difficulty.

    I'm more interested in the AI improvements that they're suggesting.

    You could run and gun in most of the levels of the previous games if you really wanted to.

    I've never played a Hitman game without screwing it up so many times that I've ended up cheating.
