If you dressed them in purple, these Saints could be from 3rd Street.

I got a little bit confused about this, but it was cool.

Well I kind of liked it, but at the same time it is a scene that feels really odd for a Hitman game which often have aimed at sort of realistic scenarios.

A bunch of nun assassins sounds like something from Saints Row.

Trailer is nice. Puting this kind of characters to this game is lame as fuck!!! It has to be joke! Hitman was always about cold-blooded killer, bodyguards etc....and suddenly these circus bitches on the scene! Im gonna throw... Seriously,...who would get THIS KIND of unit together??? And finally...that black woman with RPG....:-D I dont know if I should smile or cry....this just threw the whole Hitman style out of the window. HATE IT!

cool trailer, but just acted as evidence that this isnt hitman anymore. :(

a horde mode?

I can't say this is "Hitman-like", but it isn't the first time we see gangs with gimmicks. Some like to dress in blue, others like to have Mohawks and numbers on the face. These like to dress like nuns. I seriously think we should wait to see what's coming out of this.

Yes, but they call it whored mode.

That was ... pretty ... (and ) ... amazing !

I just hope this trailer was meant to fill the gap during waiting for the final game. I really dont want to see this kind of enemy in the game. Hitman is superior assassin. He would kill these nuns in sleep. I just hope the developers will "stay on earth" and keep it "real". I mean...."Hitman real". I dont want to run and shoot from hip, during dodging RPGs fired by nuns gang or clowns gang or any ridiculous gang. SUPPRESSORS ON, GENTLEMEN!!!

LOL. Well that was random!

This gives me the same feeling I got when they announced Brothers in Arms: Furious Four. They took a game that was one of the few realistic tactical squad shooters left, announce a sequel to the fans, and then show a game that is an over the top, slaptstick comedy, action game filled with linear scripted gameplay and horrible stereotypes. Way to p!ss off all your fans!

I realize this game is still at least somewhat "Hitman", but releasing something like this does nothing to reassure the fans of the series that they aren't "casualizing" the experience. I hope this is just a joke or an ad for some DLC or something. Assassin nuns with high heels, tats, and rocket launchers? They may as well take Agent 47 into space or the bowels of hell for the sequel...Damn, I better stop giving them ideas in case someone from IO is reading this....

People need to calm down, this is obviously a jibe at movies which use women in sexy clothing as assassins and all that rubbish, hence the 'The Original Assassin' tagline at the end after 47 whoops all their asses.

Seems like a lot of time, effort and money making some damn fine CGi, just for it to be a "jibe" at movies.

Really? I mean, I guess that could be it, but it seems kinda hard to believe that IO Interactive had $20,000 or so laying around and decided it would be best put to use making a jokey? obscure reference to an obscure genre (the sexy group of women assassins movie genre) that would confuse the hell out their fans. What a bunch of weirdos!

This is a videogame, not a real life simulation.

That scene was cooler than each single scene from the official movie :-D

Well that felt a bit tarantino esque, not sure if it fits the hitman series much but it sure looked pretty.

Also here is a hissy fit from a easily offended female ign editor:

When did Hitman become Saints Row?

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke @alimokrane: And I mean for the trilogy. Not the first game. (37 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @alimokrane: Well, you can always read up on the story of the first. But I wish you happy gaming. (+150 hours at least) (40 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I hope this bodes well for Just Cause 3 too and Battlefront. But the latter is a whole different story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker DF analysis on Mad Max is in, 1080p/30fps on both consoles and X1 actually has a slightly better framerate overall. I am impressed. Look at the launch of X1 with all the problems, and how it is now. (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @droezelke: Just don't want to miss out on the story though, hence why I am starting with the first. I won't let it turn me off :) (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @alimokrane: I think TW2 is a better start to be honest. (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @alimokrane: Oh, starting at the beginning. The first one is not representative of the next 2. Different gameplay mechanics. (2 Hours ago)
