Agent 47 has always been about business, killing anyone who dares cross his path and the latest trailer released by IO interactive cements that fact tenfold. It opens with a wounded Hitman tending to his wounds, while a gang of latex clad nuns make their way to him. Now these aren’t the kind you’ll find in a church and it’s pretty clear their aim is to introduce him to the Maker. Agent 47 of course has his own plans and effortlessly takes down the lot of them in a brutal fashion.


This trailer has kicked up quite a bit of controversy as people seem to be offended by the fact that Agent 47 is now killing women. By their definition, Agent 47 should just lay down his weapons and die just because a psychotic bunch of the fairer sex have come to kill him. Right?
