Hitman: Absolution - Saints Trailer

Nun slaughter must be the new thing that the kids are into.

Watch Video

Could'a sworn you guys posted this already.

I wonder if Diana was ever an agent.

Uhm, wow... Really, Hitman: the pornstars who hide as nuns who are actually assassins-the game?
Could have sworn the previous games where not about that, and I'd hardly call it evolution.

Sidenote to Hollywood and game makers; Nuns do not dress like that anymore, and appearantly have not for a long time. At least that's what I've heard.
See point six here http://www.cracked.com/article_19753_7-ridiculously-outdated-assumptions-every-movie-makes.html

However, if the nuns are as hot as the ones in the trailer, I'd approve of them coming to my house to preach in those secondary outfits of theirs, meow!

HOLY Crap that was kinda Cool

well i am going to say it now...Nuns are the new Terrorists in FPS now

If he threw one of them i guess you could call that a "NUN-CHUCK"
But sereasly whats with The Franchise and Molotov Cockteases?

That looked so intensly stupid I don't know where to start? I saw a bit of gameplay a few months ago, it was Sneaky-Murder-Styley, and then apparently you have to battle fetish nuns with roketlaunchers? idk, seems silly to change tone so abrubtly

Brides of Christ ATTACK!!!!!

To be honest the previus games had some religious themes, mainly Blood Money.

Seriously? Battle Nuns in tight leather? Aiya...

Damn...that shirt was clean on. D:

I'd be happier with more gameplay trailers. Teasers like this are good for the announcement/really early stages. When you get to the 4 months to go stage, I kind of want to be sold on what the actual game looks like. Tomb Raider's new trailer got it very much right and it's not out till next year.

...what the hell did I just watch. *facepalm* Is this seriously what they think people who play Hitman want? Wait, worse, IS this what other people who play Hitman want?

Look, if I wanted to see women in fetish gear subjected to severe violence, I'd go abduct a homeless person. Show me gameplay dangnammit!

Mmmm, sacrelicious. First time I've actually thought about playing a Hitman game. Good show, Squid Penix.

Actually, they do. Just not in the United States.

I don't know of any law that prohibits foreign nuns from dressing like that.

The only way my creative mind can make sense of this is that assassins dressed as nuns because it looks more inconspicuous. Though, depends on where this fight takes place.

Other than that, this was very strange.

Is it wrong that I really want to see Hitman killing Bayonetta now?

...What the heeeeellll? Evil assassin nuns who strip to bare latex killer uniforms in broad daylight to blow up an entire drive-in motel. This stuff makes fun of itself with how mind-boggeling stupid it is. Hope the game isn't like that. I know Hitman is violent, but it's normally semi-realistic when it comes to the violence in the game. That's actually where the challenge comes from.
I'll admit that it was at least fun to watch, though. I couldn't stop laughing.
I guess you could say that those assassins weren't putting up with nun of 47's antics.

Captcha: Great Unwashed. Damnit, Captcha, quit trying to steal my thunder!

This is what people are getting all fired up about? Have they never seen a movie in their life?

Oh please tell me those nuns were from Iscariot and that this bodes well for a Hellsing-Hitman crossover...

Ugh, I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Seriously? Seriously? What the fuck?

ROTFLMAO!

Wait, are they serious?

1:50. requisat en pace?

That has to be a reference in assassins creed. It's not uncommon for someone to do that, but for them to put it in the trailer is a bit too much of a coincidence I think.

OK, so I know some people have been badly offended by this trailer, as they have every right to be. But I have to say than the thing that stands out most to me is the fact that all of the "nuns" are in high heels. The leather outfits and fishnets they can get away with, because at least they're practical and give them a good cover, but high heels?! That's not being "combat ready". You'd think that they'd be a little more careful around an agent with a reputation like he's James Bond.

why were they wearing those fetish outfits and dressed as nuns?
they gave no context for this
i see why there is a controversy. it's because they gave no context and people made up there own. i am not even sure it is possible to give a logical context to it

over all i don't see any controversy but this trailer left me confused me and thinking the creator of the trailer are just stupid or it was made for shock value

why did they bother dressing up as nuns if they were gonna take off the costumes before they even got to the door? It's raining no one was even out to see them.

You gotta watch out for those Nunjas.

That was ridiculous. First no one in there right minds go's into a firefight in high heels let alone fetish wear, second assuming these are professionals why did no one check their six i.e. look behind themselves to see if a witness or policeman or bald headed assassin was getting the drop on them and third where the hell did that chick hide the rpg!

The secret twist at the end is that Bayonnetta is making a crossover appearance as the final boss.

That is not how you obtain absolution.

I like it. If the nuns around here dressed in high heels and garter belts, I'd be a lot more religious.

I didn't know Robert Rodriguez made video games.

...

I hope that's just marketing and not... like... what the game is going to be. If this just turns into a bunch of cover-based shooting, giant explosions and tits I'm going to be angry.

Blood Money wasn't exactly modest in terms of the wardrobe at points, but it stopped short of kung-fu fetish gear nuns.

"Rest in peace" isn't necessarily a reference to AC, even if it's said in latin. It's not out of place given the religious theme in the game.

A lot of things come to mind when I saw this, such as:

"What the hell?" and the good ole favorite of "Why boner why!?"

What was the need to put fetish nuns/ninja babes?
I'm so confused...
