Telling the Story of Agent 47

Past Hitman games have always had a somewhat hidden story, but this time around IO Interactive is looking to put a strong focus on narrative. With a proper mixture of motion capture performances and voice acting, the developers are overhauling everything we’ve come to love, but instead of changing it, they’re only looking to improve. Whether they’re supporting roles or meaningless ones, each character mapped in the world has a unique performance and don’t have to interact with Agent 47 to show it.

With just over a month from release, Hitman: Absolution is looking to be the most well produced stealth game yet. Take a look at this six and a half minute long video detailing the process IO Interactive had capturing and working with their cast.
