Hitman: Absolution preorders begin with Professional Edition reveal

Shares

Square Enix's begun taking preorders for Hitman: Absolution, and the company's marking Agent 47's return to the new-release shelves by revealing the game's special edition packaging. Dubbed the Professional Edition (professionalism being what separates hitmen from your common, piano-wire-wielding street thugs), the package contains the game, the deluxe packaging you voted for (Survey teases potential Hitman: Absolution box art), a making-of DVD and art book.

There's also some bonus guns in there, but you can't use them to settle neighborhood disputes because they're made of pixels. Best leave the killin' to the (ahem) Professionals. Hitman: Absolution's set for release in the coming months; while you wait for a release date, check out some new Hitman: Absolution screens filled with all the series' trademark killing-and-Catholicism, or read our most recent Hitman: Absolution preview.

    Nice stuff, but... Game still looks disappointingly linear compared to previous entries.

    Watch, they'll probably have Six's signature dual pistols... which would be freaking awesome.

    Me too! I was imagining it in my living room all shiny in it's display case and then I saw the word DLC under it.

    Yep, I'm in the same boat. Although, at first, I didn't even think they were fake. I did a double take when i thought the collectors edition didn't just mean 'bonus sh*t', it actually included tools of the trade. Hell, I guess that's why they'd call it the 'professional' edition.

    If you would go to the forums and watch some leaked gameplay, you might change your mind, cause I thought the same thing at first.

    I've seen the gameplay Looks like a piece of shit - "We're Trying to Appeal to a Wider Audience: The Game"

    More like "Yeah, We Played Batman Arkham City, Too: The Game". Not arguing that B:AC was bad, it was fantastic, but it doesn't exactly earn Hitman points for ripping it off.
