Fifteen minutes of pure Hitman gameplay.
As a long-time fan of the Hitman titles, I'm really digging what Io is laying down with this Winter's digital entry. Little tweaks to the HUD look helpful, and the simple fact that we're told you'll be able to customize your loadout before going in to a mission is (to me) a huge step up over Absolution, where the game's narrative constrained you to certain items no matter what you'd been holding in a previous scene.
Once upon a time, Hitman: Codename 47 was one of the most mind-bogglingly gorgeous games on the market. Those days are gone, but at least they've still got style.
