The lights are on
When you're as good at your job as Agent 47 has become over the years, you're bound to attract attention. This new Hitman: Absolution trailer shows a squad of sexy nuns/assassins paying a visit to Mr. 47 in a seedy-looking hotel.
You could argue that dressing like a nun makes sense in this situation. After all, those habits do a great job of concealing those submachine guns and rocket launchers. On the other hand, you'd be forgiven if you dismissed this as a cheap way to inject sexuality in the game while courting controversy. Take a look at the video below and judge for yourself.
For more info on the actual game, take a look at this nun-free gameplay trailer. Look for Hitman: Absolution on November 20 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

This looks great. There a lot of interesting tidbits in this video.
Wonder if that was a jab at Saints Row in addition to trying to stir up controversy.
I call shenanigans on driving that car out of there with all those guns in the truck. Come on at least have the car scrape the bottom, you can only mod a suspension so much. There goes the realism in this game.
(if you can't tell, I'm completely making a joke)
That was freaking awesome! I wasn't sure how the fight would play out but that was way cooler than a straight-up gun battle!
I already wanted this game...how can I go beyond wanting it even more?
Did anyone else notice that he only killed 7 of the 8 nuns?
By the beard of Zeus! Such an action packed trailer. Amazing!
i miss this series...fond memories of the meat kings party, the colorado mountains mansion, killing the yakuza guy with poison sushi, yay for new game
This speaks quite directly to my sensibilities.
Pre-order officially secured.
Considering one of them pulls out a massive RPG out of her... skirt, I doubt this is intended to be anything other than shock publicity. If the scene was set with the nuns acting out their roles and hiding in plain sight before attacking, then I could see a purpose for the getups. But when the action starts so suddenly, I fail to see a higher purpose here.
Nevertheless, fun trailer, shows a bit of smart stealth and rough action, even if the CG makes it a bit pointless so far into development.
November can't get here fast enough.
The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the image at the top was Sister Act.
For a minute there I thought Agent 47 met his match. Guess I was wrong.
They had it coming, that's what they get for trying to push their beliefs on someone
nice trailer. Although i'd like to see in game footage.
