Hitman Franchise: Games, Novels, Movies
If you have never heard of Hitman, it’s basically a game about a cloned contract killer called 47 (yes, you guessed rights there are many clones). Back in 2000 it was one of the best tactical stealth games. Yep, the original Hitman required a lot of strategy and was more about being the silent killer than the loud Rambo firing firing with shotguns. The franchise also expanded and has a film adaptions and a novel called Hitman: Enemy Within.
Advanced Motion Capturing And Hollywood Actors
Now back to Hitman 5. Hitman 5 developers use some pretty advanced technology to create a really realistic game. The same technology that was used for motion-capturing in James Cameron’s Avater, is used to make Hitman 5 a completely new gaming and entertainment experience. Square Enix even hired some Hollywood actors for 47′s ultra-realistic performance on the screen. Looks like the story will play a major role in the upcoming Hitman 5.
