Game Overview

Hitman: Absolution is a stealth shooter game developed by IO Interactive and published by Square Enix. It is the fifth entry in the Hitman franchise, and runs on IO Interactive's proprietary Glacier 2 game engine. It was released on 20 November 2012 worldwide on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Microsoft Windows.

Absolution is aimed at a wider audience than earlier games in the franchise, and so tries to be more accessible and easier to control. The storyline delves further into the mysterious and complex life of series protagonist, Agent 47, as he breaks away from the Agency to fulfil a promise made to an old friend.
