Last year, 20th Century Fox tried to bring the Hitman video game franchise back to the big screen with Hitman: Agent 47, although it failed to make a dent at the box office, taking in just $22 million domestically and $82 million worldwide. Thankfully, that did not deter IO Interactive and Square Enix from continuing their hit video game franchise, with the launch of a new Hitman game. The developers decided at the last minute to release the game in "episodes," with the first debuting earlier this month. Yesterday, a unique new trailer debuted that teased another upcoming episode, where fans are given a choice of two iconic actors to "kill," Gary Busey or Gary Cole.
The trailer features both actors revealing reprehensible things they have done, with Gary Busey admitting he kidnaps vegetarian kids, and raises them on meat, while Gary Cole says he clips his nails on public transportation. This 60-second video features both actors copping to horrible deeds, but only one will "die" in this video game. However, fans will get to choose which actor will be killed by voting on the website ChooseYourHit.com, or with the #KillCole or #KillBusey hashtags on social media.
There will also be new videos coming soon to the ChooseYourHit.com site, which breaks down why both of these candidates deserve to die more than the other. The new Hitman game will be split into seven episodes in total, with a disc complete with the entire game available for purchase sometime in 2017. You have the power and intelligence of Agent 47 at your fingertips, with complete freedom of approach and it is your choice whether to use brute force or orchestrate a genuine masterpiece of assassination.
