Square Enix and IO Interactive have today released a pair of new videos introducing two of Hitman: Absolution's key players, with a look at the ICA file of handler Benjamin Travis, and a look behind the scenes at the performance capture being utilised for the game's cut scenes.

Actors Powers Boothe (Sin City, Sudden Death, Tombstone) and Shannyn Sossamon (A Knight's Tale, Rules of Attraction) play Benjamin Travis and Jade respectively in Hitman: Absolution, and offer their own insights into playing the roles in a new video interview looking at the performance capture. There's also a brief first look at the almost finished cut scene in the trailer.

Both videos are very interesting indeed, and offer some tantalising background information behind Agent 47's latest outing. You can check out the two trailers below. Hitman: Absolution is slated for release later this year.

Whenever an actor says 'I love videogames' or anything of the sort, I just can't take it at face value. most of the time it's just bullshit, so stop feeding it to me.

Totally agree with you. I usually cringe when a celebrity is revealed to be a "big gamer" -- they usually say "Wii Sports is my favorite game!"

Agree, the old guy didn't even look interested being in the interview until its was about the acting and not the game.

Can't we at least get a release date? All its confirmed its released this year...
