Hitman Season Premiere Trailer is Deathly Serious
The episodic Hitman game that's coming out on March 11th recently got another trailer. And it's aptly titled the season premiere trailer, which is a good thing because I think we all need to remember that this is an episodic game when it shouldn't be.
What'd you say? What? Well, yeah of course I'm salty. I love the Hitman series. I even enjoyed playing Absolution even though it was such a departure from Blood Money. And I really expected this game to be full release instead of a weird episodic thing.
And you know what? Maybe the game'll be good. But I'm not going to wait for each episode. That sounds horrible to me. I like my games being full experiences. And the only time I buy episodic games are when the full price of the game is well under 60 bucks.
And the trailer looks really, really good. And honestly, while watching the trailer I felt myself getting hype to play the game. But every time I saw something cool in the trailer, I remembered that this is for the episodic Hitman game.
I think most of my disdain for this episodic model comes from the fact that I know I'd get lost in playing this game. And I know if I got the first episode, I'd end up finishing it too soon and I'd probably be pretty upset that I couldn't move on to the next episode for another month or so.
But I will say this about the trailer. It looked extremely serious. Like almost way too serious -- which is fine -- but it doesn't really represent the way that I experienced the game.

It definitely missed out on moments like this one...

The season of Hitman starts on March 11th, 2016.
