Hitman: Absolution
New Hitman: Absolution Trailer Introduces 'The Saints'

With yesterday's teaser image hinting at what's to come in today's new Hitman: Absolution trailer, Square Enix has lifted the lid on what that line-up of lady silhouettes in the image meant. It's nothing to do with multiplayer, so there's no need to fret.

The slinky ladies pictured in the image are known as The Saints, and they're an all-female elite squad of latex-sporting assassins out to kill old baldie barcode bonce, Agent 47. He's also got a boo-boo on his barcode, although we're not entirely sure what that means.

Hitman: Absolution will be giving out lethal injections and garotte wire on November 20th, 2012. We'll be bringing you the latest Agent 47-related happenings from E3 next week. Check out the awesome trailer below.

Umm... so what now? Just a video of Hitman killing nuns?
I don't get what's so important about this.

Glad to read it has nothing to do with multiplayer.
Great video, the more I see the more I'm impatient to discover this game. :)

@1 It's not 'Important' per se, it's just another drip in the tricklefeed of info between now and November.

The characters are a bit 'meh', aimed at the easy-to-please idiots, but the fighting is wicked. Rumours are that CQC will be akin to Batman, so I'm really looking forward to it :)

Actually, that trailer was very good! I'm so stoked for this game, I'd also love to see Blood Money appear on the PSN store sometime!

@1 possibly to show the importance that he's no longer being a full hitman, that other hitmen have been hired to kill him, plus it might have similar gameplay of breaking noses an taking people out who are right next to other people, without them noticing... just what i might think... an yeah high five @2 :)

So he's already killed the antagonists they've set up for the game?

these games arent about taking on squads of people in full on combat, stop trying to turn this into Call of duty modern hitman !

This is dumb. Every time I watch a new trailer for this game, it just makes me want to skip this release and just re-play Hitman Blood Money or the Splinter Cell games or something.

I agree with HARRIS 94 and jqtaxpayer... WTF is this? Because it sure as hell isn't Hitman

Previous games had elite assassin too but they look serious without a gimmick.

Now we get a elite assassin squad dressed as sexualized nuns?

And the teaser was to see that elite squad get killed in their introduction?

Its called evolution, stop being blinded by your Nostalgia Glasses.

Agent 47 is a clone, so maybe they are too. Calm down fools this is going to be a great game! I 've had 3 of the 4 and have beaten them. They're not gonna fuck this up.

It IS just a trailer. Besides, you decide how to handle things in the game. A bit meh of a video though.

I think he cut off the barcode so the agency couldn't track him or maybe he's fed up with he's local Wallmart accusing him of stealing.
