Hitman: Absolution is one of the most anticipated games of the year. Hitman 47 has grown to become one of gaming’s icons. The series has garnered a reputation for giving plenty of ways to pull off your hit. Now, in the wake of the latest interview with the developers courtesy of Gamespot AU, we’ve got a better idea of how much variety the game will offer.
One thing that the game won’t be offering however, is a Wii U version. IO interactive art director Roberto Marchesi revealed in the Q&A that
We don’t have plans for a Wii U version.
Sombre news for the masses of people who will be getting Nintendo’s new console this Christmas then. Of course, they have little to moan about, with exclusivity on such games as Bayonetta 2 and Zombi U to enjoy, but there aren’t a lot of people out there who wouldn’t mind venturing into the super-slick world of video-gaming’s favourite contract ciller.
IO Interactive art director Roberto Marchesi wasn’t overly revealing about what else we can expect to see in the game. One of the cool details that did emerge, however, was that the player’s approach to the game will affect how subsequent levels are played out. For instance, in one level the player has the option to prevent a guard from getting killed. If he intervenes, then he loses his ‘Silent Assassin’ status, but gets some valuable info from the guard. If you don’t prevent the murder, then you miss out on that particular info, but you get to approach the level in a whole new way. Apparently, there will be countless more ways to play through levels than ever before.
Hitman: Absolution will be released on PC, Xbox 360, PS3 on November 20th. It seems that Wii U players won’t be venturing into the dark and clinical world of Hitman 47 any time soon.
