In Hitman Absolution, Agent 47 Gets Hunted Down By A Group Of Nuns

By Ishaan . May 30, 2012 . 9:30am

At some point during Hitman Absolution, the International Contract Agency, who are Agent 47’s employers—or former employers, at least—decide they want him dead. Naturally, there’s no one better suited to the job than a bunch of leather-clad nuns carrying rocket launchers and rifles:



IO Interactive say this group of assassins is called “The Saints”. We don’t know why the Agency is after Agent 47, but we’ll find out once Hitman Absolution is released on November 20th.

    I would totally be more entertained if I were able to play as a nun during the game.

    • MrRobbyM

      Agent 47 in Nun getup and makeup? SOLD.

    • doubleO7

      Potential multiplayer skin?

  • That was pretty awesome. I’ve never really been interested in Hitman but after hearing people talk about the old ones and seeing gameplay of this I’m getting more interested.

    • JazzyMan123

      Try playing Hitman (first game) and Hitman 2 and I’m sure you’ll be more than interested if you really like stealth games.

      • well only stealth games I’ve played are mgs and vtm:b and i suck at mgs. i do still enjoy them though. I’d rather not go all the way back to the first game. I’ll probably just play blood money if i do go back to it.

    • MrRobbyM

      I’m a bit skeptical about this one but I recommend Hitman: Blood Money. So so so fun.

      • I wanna try it out but I don’t wanna play the PS2 version. I’d rather play the 360 version but I don’t have a 360 right now.

        • Cloud_ST

           Either get a 360 or play the PS2 version,It ain’t that bad really,I played it both in the PC and PS2 and you can even save mid-mission in the PS2 version.

    • See if you can find the PC demo for Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. It’s the one that takes place on mansion grounds. If you like it, then Hitman is totally for you. If you don’t, you probably won’t enjoy the rest of the series.

  • Too bad I’m atheist.

    *looks out the window*

    Hmm, there’s a bunch of nuns down the road and one of ’em is holding a RPG…
    Should I be worried? :(

    • MrRobbyM

      They have come to teach you about God…

      …the hard way.

    • Godmars

      You shouldn’t have hallowed out the motel bible for your drugs.

      They have sensors built into them just for that sort of thing – learned that the hard way.

    • Magic using nuns vs. RPG toting nuns. Take your pick.

      Oh and leave the room quickly and quietly.

    • Code

      It’s the one with the yo-yo you really gotta watch out for ◕3◕~

      • omeganeko

         lol it’s a trap

  • Shadowman

    Holy crap sexy nuns! :D

    They probably hunting him down cause of that bar code thing on the back of his neck.

  • omeganeko

    Conspicuous much? Wouldn’t a group of nuns stand out even if they didn’t have Uzis and RPGs?

  • Godmars

    A group of Nuns in tight, low cut leather, stockings and bad peripheral vision with a strong hatred for motels it would seem.  

  • Samurai_Heart

    So can this be categorise to nearly becoming a “Nunsploitation”? XD. I hope the interface is more intuitive then the last one though, Blood Money I think. The demo’s control felt a bit off when I played it, then again it was released in 2006. Anyone plaing the sniper challenge thing? Any Good?

  • Ronald Bixler

    “Sisters! Make him holy!” *dakka dakka dakka*

    • z_merquise

       I think I first heard that line in a film starring Leslie Nielsen.

      • Ronald Bixler

         Spy Hard I believe it was. Great movie. “Leave me alone, I’m an unarmed man!”

  • Awesome action sequence. <3 But as cool as that is, I don't know what to think about the battle nuns. xD They look a bit silly. And does that mean there will be religious tie-ins, or is it just a play on "Saints"?

    • Clearly you haven’t watch Majutsu Index (or animes/manga with deadly nuns). NUNS ARE DEADLY. 

      • No, I have. But I thought they looked silly too. :P

  • canarinta


  • amagidyne

    What. I haven’t followed the Hitman series for quite a few years now, but what? Is this Hitman or Saints R-… oh.

  • Vows? I will give you @#$*ing vows! Sisters, preach him. *fire RPG*

    -few seconds later-
    Okay whoever tht wrote us off dat fast. I gonna bomb his office LIKE RIGHT NOW!

  • Mago Iichi

    47 got that beast blood

  • Ohohohoho! “The Originial Assassin,” huh. Looks like it’s challenging the Assassin’s Creed series.

  • AnimusVox

    Ohhhh sexy nuns, but after looking at ‘The Devil Inside’ box art pic….it’s kinda hard to unsee nuns as….creepy

  • PoweredByHentai


    Nun of them survive.  XD


  • AzureNova

    O dear Lord O_O. I must say, this is awesome. Nuns with guns for the win! >_<

  • Foxeh Shihōin

    let the puns with nuns commence!

  • Great CG animation, looks better than Deus Ex. Deus Ex’s CG is great but it’s grainy, this one much more clean. I hope it has a few minutes or half an hour worth of CG for cutscene or ending. This will be my first Hitman game.

  • Bentan

    preordered now that there is nuns, i approve of this!

  •  templars disguised as an assassins.Ezio will be mad bout this

  • Oh when the Saints~ Come marching in~
    Oh when the Saints come marching in~
    With all their guns and rocket launchers~
    When the Saints come marching in~

  • isfuturebright

    This looks good! The gameplay video looked good too :D

  • KOTheWorld

    These nuns look like mannequins…creepy

  • Göran Isacson

    One the one hand, that was very ridiculous.

    On the other hand, Hitman once had us kill a clown (or knock him out) and allow us to disguise ourselves as him. Still, I think this is fairly more ridiculous than that.
