After a long teaser campaign earlier this year, Square Enix and Eidos finally revealed that everyone's favorite bald, barcoded assassin would be making his debut on in a game built on this generation of consoles in Hitman: Absolution. Now, we've got a first glimpse at series hero Agent 47 in action, as he infiltrates and eliminates Chicago policemen who are tracking him down. Think the hunters become the hunted? OF COURSE THEY DO.

There's not much sign of the psychological underpinnings that Crecente mentioned a few months ago, but keep in mind this here clip's only a taste of a more elaborate playthrough that should be out tomorrow. What do we think, Kotaku readers? A return to greatness or do you need to see more?
