In today’s press release, Square Enix confirmed their lineup and several events taking place at Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) Prime 2015, including the new Hitman game.
If you eagerly waited for more facts about the next installment of the series, the Hitman panel might catch your attention as it may include more gameplay scenes and other visuals.
HITMAN – THE ART OF ASSASSINATION
Hydra Theatre from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., August 28
Join HITMAN Art Director Jonathan Rowe and Lead Writer Michael Vogt for an hour long journey into the design philosophy behind the visual and narrative universe of the world of assassination. Hosted by Game Informer’s Mike Futter, the pair will delve into the process behind the creation of the trademark living, breathing world of HITMAN and give numerous insights and examples into the design process for visual and narrative storytelling in a world where the main character says very little. How does art direction and story design impact the player experience in a complex game like HITMAN? The panel will end with a playthrough demo of the ‘Showstopper’ mission from the upcoming HITMAN game as well as a moderated Q&A.
Square Enix also announced a very cool charity campaign, where you can shave your head like Agent 47 for a good cause or simply donate at least 1$ to receive a free Steam code for Hitman: Absolution. You might even get the chance to win a secret Hitman collectible item.
HITMAN: Put a Hit on Cancer
Square Enix, HITMAN, and GameChanger are partnering up to put a hit on cancer, and need PAX attendees to become Agent 47®. Come to the pop-up barbershop at the Square Enix booth where you can shave your head to resemble Agent 47’s iconic bald look. For each head shaved at the show, Square Enix will donate $47 to GameChanger Charity and their mission of supporting children battling cancer.
For those who want to participate but prefer the hair-keeping role of a handler, you can still put a hit on cancer and receive a free Steam code for Hitman Absolution® by simply making a donation of at least $1.00 to GameChanger Charity.
Visit www.47vsCancer.org to make your donation, receive your game code and join Agent 47 in support of children with cancer.
