About This Game
Hitman: Absolution is a video game in the Hitman series. The story of the game is separated from the agency that grants it missions by an argument that delves deeper into the life of Agent 47, being something more personal in this installment.
In the aftermath of Hitman: Blood Money, Diana Burnwood, Agent 47’s handler with the International Contract Agency, suddenly turns traitor, carrying out catastrophic sabotage that includes publicly exposing the Agency.
The Agency is reformed under the orders of Agent Benjamin Travis; Travis assigns 47 to kill Diana and bring Victoria, his teenage dependent, to the Agency. Shooting and wounding Diana in her Chicago home, 47, instead of executing her, comforts the apparently dying Diana, who gives him a letter asking him to keep Victoria safe from the Agency.
