"Hitman: Absolution is the story of a ruthless killer's road to redemption, even at the cost of more ruthless killing. You are Agent 47, a Hitman, genetically engineered to be the world's best assassin. Over the course of the game's 20+ hours of content, you will stalk through a crowded Chinatown square, crawl through the ventilation ducts of a seedy mercenary-ridden hotel, and walk a man to his death in a heat-soaked wasteland desert. All of this is old hat to fans of Absolution's predecessor, Blood Money, but a host of changes and tweaks open up the game's accessibility and bring Hitman into this generation of PC games. In short, Agent 47 is back and he's badder than ever."
