Thumbs up Hitman 3 Officially Announced

Quote:
Eidos (Nasdaq: EIDSY - News), one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today announced the eagerly awaited return of the world's deadliest assassin in Hitman: Contracts. The game is the third installment in the critically acclaimed, multi-million selling Hitman series. Hitman: Contracts is being developed by Io Interactive and will be available for PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, and PC in spring 2004.

Hitman: Contracts delivers more action-packed and suspenseful missions, with a greater variety of ways to make the perfect hit and an increased arsenal of firearms and close-combat weapons. A new graphics engine showcases Hitman's 'work' in brutal detail and brings new locations to life. An improved control system and more gradual learning curve will ensure that the game is accessible to all aspiring hitmen.
And check out the official site and trailer here:
http://www.hitmancontracts.com

I still own Hitman 1 & 2, I felt they were really great open-ended games.. only problem is they can get pretty difficult at times, with the 2nd Hitman I maybe got about halfway through But it was still a blast getting there. Hitman 3 is another game I'm looking forward to.



Edit: Looks like the Hitman Contracts site is getting hammered, it's been off and on for me.

As for me, I always thought Hitman 1&2 were too short .
Anyway, YAY !

Thumbs up

Are they stilling going ahead with the Hitman movie?

I too am one huge fan of the Hitman series. The atmosphere and the feel to that game is awesome. And yeah learning the game can be hard, but it is so freaking rewarding to pop a drug lord....

The first Hitman on hard, took me less then an afternoon to complete after playing it through for the sixth time.

Wooo hoooooo, downloading the movie right now at a hammered rate of 43kbps.

Yea the trailer is awesome. It has no gameplay footage.. but it gives you an idea of the missions to come.. that fat guy gets pwned . Here's another link to the movie:

Edit:
Dex's link is better And I'm really hoping this year also has Jesper Kyd for the music. The music in the first 2 were awesome, and completly set the mood. Jesper Kyd makes pretty cool music
