Christian Elverdam, Gameplay Director for Hitman: Absolution at Io-Interactive spoke with G4 at E3 2011 and provided a synopsis of the newest aspects of the latest Hitman entry for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
Seeking a more personal and cinematic experience, the storyline delves into Agent 47's life more than ever before and the Glacier 2 game engine permits a multitude of possibilities over previous interactions in the Hitman series. This flexibility they have dubbed Rubberbanding.
Another key and comprehensive new feature is Instinct, which functions like an in-game ESP allowing the player to sense enemies and even try to predict their actions.
The hits just keep on coming in 2012.
