Hitman: Absolution has a story to tell (and an Inception horn to blow)

Seriously, those damn horns are everywhere.

Anyway, Hitman: Absolution – a game I’m stoked enough about to actually use the word ‘stoked’ – has released the now-obligatory developer diary to talk about immersion and storytelling. While I may sound disparaging, I’m actually a pretty big fan of these sort of videos because of how they let us get a look behind the scenes; which, in turn, allows me to fully appreciate the experience that the game delivers. If you’re still not sold, check out the developer diaries/behind-the-scenes videos for any Uncharted game or Heavy Rain.

The rest of the video features the big-name Hollywood talent that IO Interactive’s brought in, such as Vivica Fox (Kill Bill, Independence Day), Shannyn Sossamon (A Knight’s Tale, fun to type) and Powers Boothe (the guy with the coolest name in Hollywood, and Deadwood). Also, at 6:22, if that’s a tip of the hat to one of my favourite movies…points, IO, definite points.
