Square Enix has released the first gameplay footage for their upcoming title Hitman. The extended playthrough titled ‘Showstoppper’ made its debut at PAX Prime and offers a look at many of the features present in the game.
Community manager Travis Barbour at Io-Interactive narrates the action, as Agent 47 pursues his target during a Paris fashion show. The mission features a huge, detailed palace environment, populated with numerous characters who react to Agent 47’s actions in the game. As always, he has a variety of weapons, disguises, and ways to approach executing his mission. Watch the footage below to see how Agent 47 leaves a party with a smashing exit.
One of the things most impressive about the footage was the sheer number of NPC’s on screen. 300 are present in the level, helping to demonstrate just how big the environment is and bring life to the world. I like the fact you can listen in on conversations and gain useful intel. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for this game as it approaches its December release.
