Quick! Watch these 17 minutes of Hitman: Absolution gameplay before Agent 47 strangles you with piano wire. What, you don’t believe me? He’s in your room right now… you think that was your mom who just brought you milk and cookies? Think again buddy! You’ve got about 17 minutes before you become a Hitman statistic.

The gameplay clip shows the same content that was shown off at this year’s E3, so if you’ve read our E3 NAG edition then you’ll know more or less what to expect. There’s a library! And police! And lots of sneaking and killing and rain and stuff. It looks fantastic and after the cliff-hanger ending that was 2006’s Blood Money, we cannot wait for this game to hit.
