    Exclamation Agent 47s face

    how did you fail his head so bad? the game looks promising and all, and i can tolerate a semi-reboot with a younger 47 but seriously his head looks like its gonna burst on top and his face looks nothing like Agent 47, for the love of Hitman please reskin him before release and shrink his melon head!

    I agree. How could the devs seriously look at the skinny 20 year old Agent 47 and say, "hmmm that looks about right"?

    Smile I don't think its necessarily a bad thing about agent 47s face

    Agent 47 may look like a mid 30s male
    but IOI said that in this game you play as agent 47 at his peak
    so maybe his peak was when he was 30+ years old or maybe genetic clones age slower .
    he still looks bad ass.


    I cant wait till this game drops onto peoples Christmas list this December.

    We will play Agent 47 in his early ages, over the top, what's the problem?
    I'm caring more about how the gameplay will be than his face personally.

    I agree its just everyone wants to change his face I think its ok

    plus I asked a adult that doesn't watch E3 or play hitman, how old agent 47 looks? and he said mid 30s
    so IOI don't need to change his face

    its not graphic that make a game fun its the gameplay its just graphic make it look nicer

  14. #14
    Think there are much more important issues to worry about. 47's face is never exactly the same in any of the games.

  15. #15
    yeah I asked a adult that doesn't watch E3 or play hitman,
    how old doe agent 47 look? and he said mid 30s
    so the face doesn't need changing

    i believe that was still in beta/alpha version, no way in final release looked like that, it would be better.

    Takes place after Absolution. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pWK8izSUKw He looks a lot better now. Movies always had a younger looking 47 since that's how he's supposed to look. He's a clone, he isn't supposed to age like a regular human.

    Not early stages. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pWK8izSUKw Takes place after Absolution. But he does look a lot better now. He's supposed to look younger than he is. If anything, this is the best he's ever looked. Here's proof as well "In exchange for research funding, Ort-Meyer provided his former comrades with donor organs harvested from clone bodies, which significantly extended their longevity. In Hitman: Codename 47, each of Ort-Meyer's accomplices are said to be 60–70 years old but appear 10–20 years younger." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_47
    This goes to show the clones bodies age a lot slower and are generally a lot more healthy and stronger than any regular human.

    Why 47's face looks exactly how it's supposed to.

    First off, let's get the elephant in the room out of the way. It isn't a reboot, it doesn't take place any earlier than the previous games, yes, 47 isn't Benjamin Button since this is how he's supposed to look like. HITMAN takes place a bit after Absolution; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pWK8izSUKw - confirmed by a dev.
    Now, as to why he looks younger, it's quite simple. He only looks younger than he actually is. 47 is genetically superior in every way to a regular human, faster reflexes, stronger, smarter and his body is also much more efficient. He ages a lot slower than any regular human being.

    As proven by a piece from the story itself; In exchange for research funding, Ort-Meyer provided his former comrades with donor organs harvested from clone bodies, which significantly extended their longevity. In Hitman: Codename 47, each of Ort-Meyer's accomplices are said to be 60–70 years old but appear 10–20 years younger. - This proves that the agents age a lot slower since their organs don't fall apart so easily as a regular human's. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_47

    Oh, and he also looks more athletic as well compared to his older appearances in the previous games where he looked more bulky and "fat".

    So, there it is. He looks younger because that's how he's supposed to look. If anything, it doesn't make sense how he looked so old in the previous games. The movies always had younger looking 47s and agents as well since that's how it's supposed to be.
    Now, please, at least try to come up with a decent argument rather than filling the thread with how much you hate his new appearance and want to commit suicide because of it, no insults or personal attacks would be preferable, try to provide sources to back up your arguments and at least legitimate ones and just generally don't be an ass.

    And there you go, this is why they changed his face.

    You have GOT to be joking. Did you really use the dreadful Hitman movies as the basis for "how Agent 47 is supposed to look?" Nobody said he's supposed to age like a normal human. In fact, it's very common for video games to freeze the age (appearance-wise) of characters. But it absolutely does NOT make sense for them to go "okay this year Agent 47 looks 45, then next year he'll look 25 etc."

    See my thread for explanation but the short of it is this: He's supposed to look 20 years younger than his actual age. 47 was born in 1964. That makes him about 46-47 years old but he's supposed to look like he's in his late 20s which he does in this game (HITMAN) and also in the movies. You might not like it but it's the truth. It didn't even make sense that he looked so old in all the previous games. Even for Absolution they made him look younger.

    But, if you're too lazy to search my well detailed thread about why he looks younger here's proof, from the actual story of the game: Ort-Meyer provided his former comrades with donor organs harvested from clone bodies, which significantly extended their longevity. In Hitman: Codename 47, each of Ort-Meyer's accomplices are said to be 60–70 years old but appear 10–20 years younger. So there you go, since they use the clones organs (which 47 also is, duh) they look younger than their actual age by a very big margin. So there you are.

    47 is in his late 40s but due to him being a clone he ages slower than a regular human so he's going to look 10-20 years younger than what he actually is. As an example, say 47 would be 80 years old but his body and appearance would be that of a 60 year old since he ages slower. This is proof taken from the story of the game: Ort-Meyer provided his former comrades with donor organs harvested from clone bodies, which significantly extended their longevity. In Hitman: Codename 47, each of Ort-Meyer's accomplices are said to be 60–70 years old but appear 10–20 years younger. If anything his appearance in the previous games was wrong since he looked much older than he even was at the time. The movies also have younger looking 47s and agent clones. The movies may be terrible but at least they're accurate in some regards.
    Also, why would anyone want to play as an old hitman is beyond me. If anything, this is the best 47 ever looked in all of the series so it should be a good thing for everyone. Besides, seems most of the people complaining about his looks never even played most of the series.

    if it's still not clear, think of it like this. If you were born in 1960 and aged at a slower rate than a normal human, say about half as slow, you'd still have lived for 75 years until today but your body would be that of a 35-ish year old and obviously, your face would also look that young. Just think about it, if a simple transplant of an agent clone's organs could turn someone younger by 10-20 years, an actual agent clone will age that much slower. So it makes sense for 47 to look so young.

    While I admire your try at explaining, I always have a knee-jerk reaction when someone is too apologetic in something that is as clear as day.
    The reason 47 looks this way is because they are redesigning him for a new 'beginning'. That's it. Trying to push that into the lore makes no sense, since it wouldn't make him look younger but the same.
    Its going to take some time to get used to it, but its nothing too crazy, since he still looks very much like 47. Especially when they zoomed in and his mouth was out of view

    Its not unreasonable that IO tries to bring 47s look closer to the look of the movie. Beside that, I also think that we play 47 in his early years. Now we get to experience the story of the younger and not the broken 47 of Absolution (who wasn't really convincing).

    I personally like his new look. I also like the title. There are far more issues about the game we schould worry about.

    Edit:

    Someone on youtube came up with "He looks like "Johnny Sins"." Looked it up....and I tend to say he is right.
    Now I can't take the new 47 seriously anymore. Johnny Sins is a male porn star.
