Hitman: Absolution players will have a wide variety of weapons at their disposal, as seen in a new trailer released today by developer IO Interactive.

The trailer starts out by showing off a ton of guns, with assault rifles, light machine guns, pistols, revolvers, sniper rifles, and submachine guns among the assortment on display. But as a master assassin, Agent 47 can use his environment to his advantage, turning just about anything into an instrument of murder.

Will you rely on 47's old standbys, the fiber wire or silenced Silverballers, for a quick and quiet kill? Repurpose tools like crowbars and wrenches? Pick up seemingly harmless objects just lying around, such as bricks or plungers? Perhaps you'll get creative, stabbing a target with scissors or lighting him up with some gasoline.

"Whether you're a perfect assassin, a brutal maniac, or a bit of both," says the trailer's narrator, "we've got all the tools you need."

Hitman: Absolution launches on November 23rd on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Check out our most recent preview of the game's Contracts mode.
