German Preview

First of all, the casual mode. It's called "Instinct" and can be turned off on higher difficulties.
Advantages the "Instinct" mode will bring:
- X-Ray vision
- Orange glow highlights position and routes of nearby NPC's
- Highlights usable objects, special actions
- Enhances certain abilities (for example makes it harder for enemies to see through disguises)
- (the german authors speculating) maybe bullettime during shootouts
Using Instinct costs energy that can be replenished by performing "Hitman" actions like stealth killing foes.

Details on game mechanics:
- 47 is more agile and easier to control, for example he can grab on ledges and balance around edges
- Cover system integrated, human shields
- Hiding in dark corners
- Still possible to kill target only, optimally by accident
- Film-noir flair
- Dynamic music
- Using the environmental objects to dispatch enemies; examples: strangulation with electrical cords, the good old chandelier, a Bong (!)
- Glacier-2 engine again using a crowd system with dozens, if not hundreds of people on screen
- Detailed graphics, fantastic lighting, fluid indoor/outdoor transitions

Then they describe a mission and possible ways to solve it. They note that it felt old-school but rather linear, this might be because it was the presentation level. (I guess its the tutorial level, like the funfair in Hitman 4)
The Situation:
Agent 47 is an unarmed fugitive, chased by the police. He takes refuge in an abandoned library that is soon surrounded and stormed by armed forces.
Now they list three possible ways of solving the mission:

A) 47 takes the cable of a desk lamp and chokes one of the officers to death. He takes his gun, sneaks up to another officer and takes him as human shield. He then proceeds to the roof emergency exit. As soon as the armed forces open fire, 47 takes cover behind book shelves. After eliminating everyone from behind the cover, the escape route has been cleared.

B ) 47 takes the cable of a desk lamp and chokes one of the officers to death. He takes his clothing and carefully gets past the armed forces through the emergency exit on the roof.

C) 47 sneaks past the guards using all kinds of environmental cover and climbing around. He then manipulates a fuse box, disabling the electricity. In the dark he manages to sneak out over the roof undetected.

Those three possibilities culminate in a Helicopter chase sequence that is described as follows:
A linear roof chase sequence, the helicopter opens fire on 47.
They mention that such linear sequences "quicken the pace" from time to time, I don't know what to make of that.
- 47 then takes cover in an apartment building and uses his disguising skills to get to the finish.

That was freaking awesome.

No disguise required scenarios will be fun. Get in and get out as quickly as possible. The trailer reminded me of a certain scene from the finale of Breaking Bad Season 3.

Yup, love it. But I also love the choice the game seems to be offering. I also love the fact that they are helping people on lower difficultys and that it can be turned off on higher difficultys. Nothing to complain about here cant wait to see gameplay.

I see the improvement everywhere. 47 looks so great in those screens. The difference can be seen clearly on his face. Like comparing Blood Money with this one new and Tomb Raider Underworld with the new one.

GO for it guys, you gonna make me enjoy this game as I did with Blood Money, slapping a bodyguard on his nape and get back quickly on the shadowed corner as he never noticed me at all. :)

So much fun.

Screens look great, love the lighting and details. Presentation mission sounds quite a bit like Hitman. The info in the preview excites me to no end, especially the film noir bit.

Trailer is just so fucking awesome. "47?"

So Agent 47 kills everything in the vicinity to reach the target, and then proceeds to use a silenced pistol because absolute discretion is required at this stage.
Not very Hitman IO Interactive.

As long as the map and missions are not primarily designed with 'kill everything on sight' approach, I eagerly look forward to this.

The scripted set pieces sound a bit retarded, maybe, but i gotta say, a better control scheme isn't bad.
Blood Money and the previous Hitmans were still pretty clunky in the controls.
To strangle a victim with the fiberwire was a challenge, just lining up to the guy and understanding if you were close enough or not, was unnecessarily rigid.
Let's just hope they haven't dumbed it down.
