Hitman: Absolution represents the fifth game in the accclaimed stealth series, and as ever, is developed by IO Interactive, with Nixxes Software helping out on the PC version. Given the last Hitman game was released six years ago, there's been quite a bit of hype behind this one.
As mentioned in my technical preview, the game has a decent base to start with. If you're curious to see what IO has done with the last four months about and how the game fares on PC today and on the new Glacier 2 engine, read on for a light technical analysis.
