Everyone’s favourite bald assassin, Agent 47 has been MIA for a while but now developer IO are prepping him for return next year in Hitman Absolution. At E3 2011, the game was demoed to select media outlets and now that very same gameplay footage has been released officially by Eidos.

This 16 minute walkthrough takes place in a library in Chicago where Agent 47 somehow gets stranded. With no weapons on him, he must use cunning, stealth and in some cases, brute force to make it out of there alive. The game looks a bit dumbed down from what we’re used to seeing in most Hitman games with a new X-Ray system that even allows you to determine an enemy's pattern but it still looked intense as hell. Unfortunately there's no release date to this game yet but we hope we'll be playing it early 2012.
