We previewed Hitman

We previewed Hitman

A few weeks ago, Square-Enix invited us to a press tour event in London to play Hitman. Well guess what, we prepared a full English video preview including our impressions on the game. On the French side, you'll also find a written article which might have some more information we didn't have time to mention in the video. Be comprehensive, this was pretty much improvised and recorded in one shot.
Note: One negative point we didn't mention in the video is the AI once you are detected. It felt rather scripted in the build we saw and it was easy to fool them.
Update 2: Corrected video added with proper black levels.

Thanks for the preview. Are the black-levels correct? Could be a grey 16-235

We didn't capture the footage, it was given by Square-Enix.

We corrected the black levels in the video, you should be able to enjoy it even more. :)

It is looking a bit worse than Absolution.

i'm not sure absolutions "Instagram filtered" visuals amounted to a better looking game personally.

I was actually blown away by the quality of the visuals here. EDIT: Just saw the comment that you didn't capture this footage, so I strike my question.

The visuals are incredibly crisp, wow! Driftwood, do the game look like that during gameplay (on PC) or is the video touched up/doctored in any way?

I wasn't in London, I just gave my voice for the video. :(

I'll ask.

What I do know is that the build they were showing also ran poorly on PC, around 40 fps on powerful rig if I'm not mistaken. And there were crashes and bugs too.

I don't like the giant "SUBDUE" prompt on the back of characters.

Thank you sir! :) I´m looking forward to a small report on the matter.

This looks like a return to form.

Is there a first person option still?

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (15 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (15 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (16 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (16 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (16 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (17 Hours ago)
