Hitman Absolution: 17 minutes of death and destruction

The last time we saw Hitman: Absolution, Agent 47 was dispatching some nuns in a pre-rendered cinematic. While it certainly was splashy, it did little to show off gameplay. IO Interactive is fixing that today, releasing 17 minutes of gameplay from the "Streets of Hope" scenario from E3.

The video is narrated by Travis Barbour of the IO community team and game director Tore Blystad, and shows an expedited play-through of the level, where 47 must eliminate some gang members and kidnap the leader.

Andrew saw the demo at E3. The game comes out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on November 20.
