Based on the last story trailer for Hitman: Absolution, it's clear that circumstances are stacked in Agent 47 in a way they haven't been in previous games from the series, but when it comes to gameplay, this current video reveals that he's still the same sneaky, murderous so-and-so as he ever was.

Hitman: Absolution will be released sometime later this year.
