I won't lie to you - I never got into the Hitman series. The gameplay never appealed to me. But Hitman: Absolution seems to give you the choice of either going guns blazing or silently assassinate targets, and I love going guns blazing. Check out the trailer below.
This trailer is actually making me consider giving the old Hitman games another try. But It'll probably take just a few hours until I give up and lose my patience at going all sneaky. Really not my strong suit.
Hitman: Absolution is planned sometime the 4th quarter of 2012 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
