Several new screenshots have been released for Hitman: Absolution, which can be viewed in the gallery below. You get to see some of Agent 47’s disguises, as well as the instinct vision in action. Some new environments and targets are also showcased, and there are some images of animated cutscenes and mission results to look over.


Not only that, but the five difficulty levels have been revealed as well, courtesy of FanCensus. Each difficulty setting has widely variable traits and conditions, meaning that anyone from a newcomer to longtime fans of the series will be able to find a setting that suits them.

Enhanced: Easy – Supreme training and a physique enhanced beyond ordinary human capacity mean that your enemies are no match for you. By cunning or by brute force, you are unstoppable.
