Hitman: Absolution to receive tie-in novel

Fans of the Hitman series will be able to experience a new story starring Agent 47 in a forthcoming tie-in novel from Del Rey.

The publisher has teamed up with Io Interactive to produce Hitman: Damnation, a new novel from author Raymond Benson that links in to the story of the forthcoming videogame Hitman: Absolution.

Launching in summer 2012, the book follows the iconic bald-headed assassin as he embarks on a mission to take out a series of high-level political figures in the US, unravelling a sinister conspiracy in the process.

The story bridges the gap between Absolution and its predecessor Hitman: Blood Money, making it a must-read for enthusiasts of the multimillion-selling series.

Gamers everywhere are looking forward to the 2012 launch of Hitman: Absolution on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, which sees Agent 47 on the run from the police and his former comrades.

The game utilises Glacier 2 graphics technology to deliver spectacular visuals and genuine cinematic flair, meaning it promises to be one of the most absorbing Hitman adventures to date.
