A launch trailer for Square Enix's Hitman ICA, a companion app to last year's Hitman: Absolution, shows off the new benefits that the app provides.
Grounded in the fiction of being the internal database of the International Contracts Agency, the app keeps track of a player's progress in game — proficiency with certain weapons, for example — and unlocks rewards such as other weapons and disguises appropriately. It also provides the player with a way to compare performance to other Hitman players around the globe.
Hitman ICA is now available for iOS and Android.
Hitman: Absolution launches next week, and a new trailer to mark the impending release focuses on Agent 47's mission to save one life.
Agent 47 will stop at nothing, spurning two-bit thugs, gun-toting nuns and even his employer — the International Contract Agency — itself.
Hitman: Absolution, developed by IO Interactive, launches Nov. 20 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Though Hitman: Absolution affords its players a number of tools and abilities to stealthily execute Agent 47's target, Conan O'Brien didn't seem to have much patience for them in his latest "Clueless Gamer" review.
O'Brien, who previously shared his (self-admitted) un-expert opinion on Skyrim and Resident Evil 6, makes his way through Hitman: Absolution's first few levels in the most violent manner possible in the video above. Sneaking isn't really his fashion; he prefers louder methods of execution, like gunfire or, in one particularly gruesome clip, a well-placed mulcher.
Check out the video above to watch the carnage unfold.
The latest Hitman: Absolution dossier video from the International Contract Agency focuses on Agent 47 himself, with the narrator commenting on his remarkable track record as an assassin until he goes rogue and becomes a target himself.
Hitman: Absolution is set for release on Nov. 20 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
In this latest Hitman: Absolution trailer, we're reminded that the game is absolutely packed with people living their lives, doing their thing, waiting to be killed by Agent 47.
It's an intricate web of lives, this latest Hitman: Absolution video promises, that can become quickly tangled with one well-placed shot.
In the latest behind-the-scenes video for Hitman: Absolution, its developers at IO Interactive discuss the audio in the game — music, sound effects and dialogue — and explain how it helps to tell Agent 47's story.
Hitman: Absolution launches Nov. 20 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Hitman: Absolution's latest trailer focuses on the damsel-in-distress story that developer IO Interactive is trying to tell. It's heavy on cutscenes and pounding synth strings.
Hitman: Absolution launches on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on Nov. 20.
