Going by the initial presentation, Hitman appears to be the game fans have been waiting for since 2006's Hitman: Blood Money, with huge sandbox environments and an unprecedented amount of opportunities to assassinate your target.
Hopefully they don't punish you for killing people,which is the funnest part of being a HITMAN. Blood Money was a classic example of devs making a great game, then destroying it with a horrible rewards system.
Often in older Hitman games, one innocent and you're alright; two and it's definitely no Silent Assassin rating. That's always been the core of Classic Hitman. You either go loud or go quiet. All Absolution did was choke you out of creativity.
So why were you penalized for shooting someone with a silenced pistol.
Because Silent Assassin has some creative wiggle room. You can really break the conventions of your kills if you pay close enough attention. You can increase the brutality, albeit in a very short bursts. Also shooting non-targets is the antithesis of being a skilled assassin. So it makes sense that the game punishes you, even though it's still very possible to achieve silent assassin. I killed three targets with the Colt Magnum, the loudest pistol, and still got silent assassin. What's funny about Hitman 2 and Hitman Contracts is there's no real bullet drop, you can snipe someone with a pistol even the crappiest handgun can nail a long range shot. I completed "Deadly Cargo" using Hitgod47 (youtuber) methods. I recommend their channel if you want to learn the dirtiest exploits through pure gameplay.
Good...because the last Hitman game felt...well.....less like Hitman
Let's just wait and see before getting your hopes up, because things can very quickly turn ugly these days.
so many good games this year still, my body is ready for more hitman.
Sounds like they are doing it right with this Hitman, i'm in. The last Hitman was a hit with critics but i'd prefer a more sandbox style. Did they say exclusive contracts on PS4? I'm expecting good visuals and a fun game. Hooray games!
Why have they made those nice trademark pistols black??? Hope this gets a physical release.. 👍
His original Silverballers are probably unlockable... or dlc. Whilst a physical release would be nice, the 'episodic' contracts are still going to need to be downloaded... that said, they'll probably release a physical 'GotY' edition at some point. I'm (pleasantly) suprised to hear it's a sequel to Absolution - I figured it was a reboot, since 47 looks younger and is working with Diana and the Agency... also, the simple 'Hitman' title reminded me of the 'Tomb Raider' reboot. 'Bloodmoney' is still one of my all-time faves... I'm really looking foward to seeing this one in action.
Yeah I was thinking the same thing lol although I just read that there gonna release a disc version, which is nice :-D
Sure hope so. The stealth gameplay looks awesome.
The last Hitman felt quite restricted compared to previous installments. I really hope the sequel amps up the Hitman feeling.
I missed the assassination contract format of the hitman series in absolution. I didnt like the storyline format!
