Hitman Absolution level changed due to negative nun trailer reaction

Hitman Absolution has been tweaked after negative reaction to the game's all-guns-blazing PVC-clad nun trailer.

The teaser video saw Agent 47 mercilessly assassinating a troupe of killer nuns. Hitman's trademark stealth gameplay was nowhere to be seen.

"We were surprised by the reaction to it. We've been trying to find out, you know, how could we not see this happening? If we knew it would get such a negative reaction we would have done it in a different way."

If you guys were Hitman fans then you should know why fans were p*ssed at that trailer.

Why is it that this gen developers try and change what the a franchise is about which ends up ruining it. Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Dead Space, Final Fantasy etc

I'm a Hitman fan and I don't see why Hitman fans would be pissed at that trailer. Maybe new Hitman players might be offended or something but it's the same basic style of the older trailers. It starts out weird, you see a bit of the stealth, then it's exposed and he goes guns blazing.

if you took out deadspace I would agree. that game has only gotten better

Somethings have to change. If resident evil stayed the way it was like from the ps1 era people would be whining about how it doesn't change. And devil may cry looks really good even if all you do is complain about the character or how its not 60fps. Whoopity do it still looks very enjoyable. And as far as dead space goes yeah they added co op and a cover system so what. There are unitologist in the game with guns so a cover system was needed and also you can still play the game completely alone it's not like they're forcing co op on you.

They can't please everybody you know.

despite the fact EVERY hitman game has always had a fantastical enemy who doesnt fit in at all and in every game it has been done completely on purpose.

And why are people so up in arms abou this, its clear they were not nuns anyway? besides religion needs a good socking in the face anyway.

I enjoyed it.

"level changed due to negative nun trailer reaction"
*disappointment & rage starts building*

*reads article*
They're adding more backstory and context to The Saints instead of removing that content? I knew I liked these guys for a reason :)

That is cool, majority of devs out there would completely change around everything or take it out.

They weren't nuns. I don't get it. Is he unable to disguise himself as anyone because that group is upset.

sway_z2281d ago

Why fantasy gets confused with reality is beyond logic....when was the last time you saw a group of vixen nuns attacking a middle aged bald guy with deadly weapons?

The world's gone mad!

Lol, anything flies these days, I once saw a candy bar rebelling against a fat man. Im not sure if the candy bar or the guy won, but it wasnt pretty.
