Oh so they really left the whole clone thing behind? But that doc and DNA from several most dangerous psychopaths (now somehow members of secret society?) is still there.
I mean I get it perhaps is silly. But so were the two movies. And it is alarming when actuall game lore starts to mimic the movies. Which got it mostly very wrong.
BTW I always loved that strange and disturbing nature of the clones, I would not mind to have some lure in the shadows to try to hunt 47.
The intrique of Diana’s fam. getting killed is kinda interesting, but leave her alone already =D it almost reminds me of the “intrigue” of absolution and the whole Diana plot. And by that I mean needless and forced. Wha’s next? She is his sister?
The big disease of today’s media is that writers seem unable to do small story and everything has to be about world moving super complex plot, which barely works in the end or is just lolzy.
Soon we gonna get ending with blue lazer shooting up to the sky before big explosion of a city and I’m done. =D
I mean you have precious little mysterious character that offs people who actually deserve it and he does so not out of selfdefense. He has a past that explains why he can do it. The glue to hold all that together does not have to be an earth sized cospiracy. And I say that as somebody who finds lots of conspiracy “theories” very plausable.
Look at John Wick, the best hitman movie(s), without actual 47 there is. Tiny tiny plot. And what I found always cool on 47 was that he, unlike most of anti/heroes Wick included, was not driven by reveange or even sense of justice. But just like John Wick, 47 is the boogie man. The man, that Dexter looks under his bed for, before he goes to sleep.
Using minimalism in the story and writing, since you prettymuch nailed the gameplay, would also serve in the future, to save you some money. Smoke, mirrors and mrReaper doing some cleaning.
I’d go maybe even so far to say, that there is no other way, but to keep the story vague, minimalistic and mysterious. Because if one makes a hit, and then tries to outdo it, with the same formula, only lauder, it becomes a self parody, or just cringe festival, which Hitman still isn’t, thankfully. But as an example look at Taken franch. =D
I’m just glad it is not Absolution2, I take that the game as a nightmare sequence. 47 had, after he spend entire weekend playing splintercell.
Keep shadowclient forever illusive, evil lurkiing in the bacground, never explain it.
