Developer IO Interactive has released a massive, 15-minute video spotlighting the gameplay of of their upcoming Hitman sequel, Hitman: Absolution. The video is hosted exclusively right now by our friends at Machinima, but we’ve embedded the extended gameplay footage below for your convenience and viewing pleasure.

The footage you’re about to watch takes place in what seems to be a massive library, with cops on the hunt for Agent 47. In typical Hitman fashion, the demo is a slow burn, full of sneaking and a lot of silent takedowns. I’m also not entirely familiar with the Hitman series, but has Agent 47 always had a spider-sense? Well, he definitely has one now.

It’s also worth mentioning that Hitman: Absolution is shaping up quite nicely from a visual standpoint. Specifically, the lighting in this demo looks fantastic, so make sure you boost the video into high definition to get the full effect.
