Shouldn't the slides on the ballers be all the way back?

Anyway, cool render.

Look out for a new cover tomorrow. I'll also update the front page and keep track of all images from there as well as posting new ones as we get them.

And here it is!

GAMEStm in the UK featured Absolution on their January 2012 cover. What do you think? http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7022/6689317165_4557b9589f_z.jpg

The way the gun is the slider could be right because the muzzle flash just broke, so the slider would be on the way back with in the next .09th of a second.

These are both right. I understand appealing to a customer base that doesn't know about the series but lets just hope these flaws don't make it into the actual game.


Agent 47 is supposed to be void of emotion or at least never shows it. He is an efficient killing machine that gets the job done. Anything that strays from this is a completely different game.

Monday morning and there's three more covers! (That's a total of 13 now for anyone who's counting!)

Two from Italy this time and another one to add to our UK collection.

The first post is updated again. Once we've got them all in from the Rosewood Orphange coverage, I'll post a bonus picture for what we actually do with the covers at IO.

Well, I disagree. In every games, when 47 was shot, he was doing this kind of face. More particulary in HBM, when he was shooting with some big thing, like the M4, he was doing this face, like "You gonna take some bullets in your face and you totally deserve it", or maybe more like "this recoil is totally killing me".
It's just that we never really see it, because, well, we can't really see his face when he shoots.
However, I admit that I would prefer an inexpressive killer, who could kill someone without changing the look of his face.

There's 15 magazine covers and only 2 different images..... ???

That's right. Bear in mind that there are 15 magazine covers but they cover 12 different countries so it's only when you see them all collected together like this that you see the same render.

The guys at the mags have also subtley adjusted the render to fit their cover. Some have mirrored the image, added different backgrounds, rotated, added shadows.

One of the favourites is one of the newest, added to the front page now...

@TravisIO

Can you confirm that the animation where 47 hides the baller/weapon behind his back/front will return for absolution?

It was a brilliant touch and really made the act of walking upto an unsuspecting target super bad*** and cool.
Its a little detail which I hope makes the cut.

If you think that until Hitman: Blood Money 47 was able to show only pain so take it as an improvment.

That one with the white back drop with black barcode looks slick as hell. I want that on a poster dammit! I also like the one where his back is turned and he has both guns pointed upwards. That looks sweet.

It's interesting because as everyone has said, he looks significantly more angry. Actually come to think of it, in the past he never really seemed angry, his scowl was more just how he always was. But now, it seems legitimate anger is being show. He is now truly discontented, and shows it.

As it has been stated this Hitman will be a very self-exploration type journey for 47, and I can't wait to be once more enthralled by the story.

Cool stuff guys and gals.

And how could you forgot about putting the Hitman cover from one of the biggest European video games magazine based in Poland, called "PSXExtreme"? What a joke :(. Here's the cover:
