A few days ago we announced that the very first screenshots for the much-anticipated Hitman: Absolution game had just been released. If the screenshots left you wanting to see more of the game, you’ll be really pleased to know that the E3 2011 trailer has now emerged.

As Ozzie Mejia from shacknews.com reports, those who attended the E3 2011 event also got to see a demo of the Hitman: Absolution game – which is being developed by IO Interactive and published by Square Enix – in action, including the graphics with the new Glacier 2 engine.

The demo showed the protagonist Agent 47 on the run from the police. After surviving a firefight and dodging a police helicopter assault, Agent 47 is seen knocking out a police officer and wearing his uniform as a disguise. The demo ended with him just blending into the crowd.

Although the demo displayed a lot of the classic elements of the Hitman series such as the ability to don disguises to escape capture, it also showed off the new Instinct tool. The Instinct tool is a secondary view that highlights enemies on screen and shows players what path they may walk.

This of course enables players to plan their next move accordingly. As Ozzie notes, the new Glacier 2 engine appears to have made the graphics more realistic and a lot smoother. The publisher promises that players will have multiple ways to play through the Hitman: Absolution game.

The trailer can be viewed over on the shacknews.com website. What do you think of the Hitman: Absolution game from what you’ve seen and read so far?
