The sneaky gameplay will stay, so do not worry! :]
If that's true, then that's great.
But so far, nothing
I have seen about this game leads me to believe that. Every trailer and screenshot has been full of explosions and guns and close-quarters-combat moves that just don't have a place in a series that has so far been focussed on a suit-wearing, aesthetically-thin-to-the-point-of-gauntness genetically engineered assassin.
The only thing IOI have done in the last five years has been action games - Mini Ninjas, Kane & Lynch games...
Edit: This thread
, or rather the 16 minute video linked in it, gives me some hope. Not watched all of it yet, though. Another game dependent on a cover system...
edit 2: Um. Suddenly 47 can see through walls? You can find a reason (augmentation) in Deus Ex, but Hitman? Really?Edited by Paradigm Shifter - 10/10/11 at 9:26am
