The Hitman Vault

I noticed we don’t really have a vault thread which contains unseen / old stuff. Other than what’s on the Archived HitmanForum.

This thread is for things such as official original concept art(s), promotional material & engine screenshots from the legacy games.
Hopefully some of us can scour old files and pool together to make some sort of high resolution un-watermarked archival thread of sorts.

Apologies to @ampburner for the space this thread will probably take :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ll start with Blood Money


###Concept Art.

Mark Purayah II.

Raymond Kulinsky

###Promotional CG Renders.


###Engine Screenshots - I apologize for the IGN watermarks.

Good thread!

These were marketing renders from Blood Money, made by David Giraud. The middle one (Showdown between Albino and 47) was never used.

Stuff I dug out of the actual IOI archives for the level contest here a few years back. Worth saving if you like the legacy stuff: Celebrating the Level Contest

Weird. Works for me (also in incognito). Try this link: https://hitman.com/en-gb/news/a-classic-hit-traditions-of-the-trade

Any luck?

Working fine for me.

Yeah, that works fine for me. I guess it was just a problem that only affected me
Thanks for the link :smiley:

For anyone that hasn’t seen them already, these all deserve a looksee.

These were on an old version of the site. I’ll update the links later. Got a meeting now.

Edited them. Should work fine now.

There’s some stuff here:

Not really sure that these would be considered “concept art” though…
HD stuff includes:



IGN also has two articles with concept art, but some stuff is REALLY tiny.
These are the reasonably sized pics:

This is production concept art for Absolution by Rasmus Berggreen. They aren’t especially rare or anything, but I love sharing them because it blows my mind how accurately they were recreated in engine by IO’s digital artists. Huge credit to all involved.

Found this while searching for more artworks, most of them are textless and the others could be cleaned up with little work.
