59w ago - IO Interactive Community Manager Nick Price is here with a new video today showcasing the disguises in Hitman: Absolution for the PS3 entertainment system!
To quote: If you pick just one unique, fun element that truly stands out in a Hitman game, it's got to be the ability to suit up in various disguises in order to fool passersby and infiltrate protected areas undetected.
At IO, we've always had a lot of fun with disguises, which probably culminated in Hitman: Blood Money's white suits, clown outfits, and full-body chicken costumes.
With Hitman: Absolution, we're following up on that tradition and we're adding new wrinkles as well. Most importantly, we've added the ability to "blend in," which allows you to act out your disguise more convincingly. Whereas a disguise would fool people at a distance in the old games, Agent 47 can now use his Instinct powers to fool people up close.
Normally, enemies can detect your disguise if you walk straight up to them and they are wearing similar outfits - for instance, a Chicago police officer will eventually start to question you if you are wearing a police uniform.
But by blending in, you can briefly fool a nearby enemy...
