Hitman: Absolution VGA trailer sneaks up, strangles us with piano wire

Hitman is back, and he's carrying a lot of guns

Agent 47 is back in this new trailer for Hitman: Absolution, which just debuted during the pre-show festivities for the VGAs. It features 47 doing what he does best: killing lots of people without giving them a chance to shoot back with silenced pistols. Take a look:

Interesting that the developers are throwing the word "assassin" around, almost as if they're trying to cross swords (or piano wire) with Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. Hitman was never about being an "assassin" or climbing around rooftops. It was about killing someone, stealing their clothing, and pretending that you're delivering fruit before shooting them in the face with a silenced pistol.

So, what do you think? Excited for the return of Agent 47?
