Everyone's favorite bald-headed assassin appears to be up to his old tricks in South Dakota. Agent 47's handiwork was recently documented in a copy of the Hope News Times, a fictional newspaper distributed by Square Enix to help keep tabs on the killer in advance of his next appearance in Hitman: Absolution.

Need help spotting the important bit? Here, read this one again:

An orchestrated car crash caused by a young bikini model who just “happened” to be on break? And severe head trauma? That sound like Agent 47's style.

The fake report also mentions Blake Dexter, a small town industrialist who we're sure will end up on the receiving end of a choking wire. Or maybe we're reading too much into it?

This is apparently the first of numerous mock Hitman reports to come. The full story will be revealed when Hitman: Absolution hits PS3, Xbox 360, and PC later this year.

    I love Hitman games. I need a Hitman game for PS3. That is all.

    In Blood Money, they had newspapers detail 47's work as a nice little "real world" touch. Hope it's back in Absolution.
