A couple of days ago we announced that both IO Interactive and Square Enix had confirmed the Hitman: Absolution (Hitman 5) game. The publisher even provided fans with a brief teaser trailer. Now it appears that a few more details have emerged online.
According to a hollywoodreporter.com article by John Gausiosi, Square Enix seems to have taken a Hollywood approach to the upcoming fifth instalment in the action game series, with IO Interactive having worked with a number of Hollywood actors for the Hitman: Absolution game.
The actors were able to bring their virtual characters to life, by using both voice acting and performance capture. Among the game’s cast is ‘White Collar actress Marsha Thomason and actor Keith Carradine, who is stepping into the role of the new villain in Hitman: Absolution, Blake Dexter.
Thomason will be stepping into the shoes of Diana Burnwood, Agent 47’s handler — who also has a close relationship with the protagonist. Speaking about her character, Thomason said that Diana is Agent 47’s only true human contact, and the two have known each other for a long time.
The new game is said to have more emphasis on the emotional human stories that evolve, and that is why the developer decided to hire Hollywood actors. Hitman: Absolution will also have more central characters than previous games, and they’ll all have names and play important roles in the story.
