The Hitman: Absolution "Attack of the Saints" trailer caused, shall I say, quite a stir with the more conservative people in the gaming community. Apparently it was felt sexuality should be all but absent from games, and that IO Interactive was ruining their own franchise...despite the fact female assassins in fetish wear have already been featured in it before.
Anyway, if you're still a little mad about it, some context may help. Today I've got a video for you which provides some background on the team of assassins masquerading as nuns. The purpose of the outfits, of course, is for the element of surprise. Their mission, as you've probably guessed by now, is to take down Agent 47. They fail, but that's not the end of it...
Hilariously, despite the developer recently apologizing for the original trailer, the video also seems to poke fun at those who were upset: a letter in it from an inside man opposed to the nun assassin "project" reads in part, "What's with these fetish costumes? I find them inappropriate and exploitative. They seem to [defeat the purpose] of the disguise?! I therefore do not support this initiative. I want my protest noted."
If you do support the murderous sexy nuns inititative, it launches November 20.
