The Look of Agent 47


#2857

Sniper Assassin isn’t based off of Hitman 2, so no. The beta excuse doesn’t work since they wouldn’t have redesigned the face in the first place if they planned on keeping the old one.


#2858

Add-on long hair and its Michael Jackson


#2859

Man I knew he reminded me of someone famous hahaha


#2860

You know that for sure do you??? After all Sniper Assassin is a new mode altogether!!


#2861

It’s obvious. They reused the character model and the UI is identical. Why do think they made a new character model for Hitman 2 if they intended to use the old one?


#2862

Well why use two different character models when Sniper Assassin is all tied in with Hitman 2 anyway?

Doesn’t make any sense. Think it’s best to just see what happens.


#2863

Because it’s not tied to it, it’s a separate game.

But yeah, let’s wait.


#2864

It’s a pre order bonus specifically for HITMAN 2. Would be utterly stupid if they changed his model just for season 2.


#2865

Yet they did just that.


#2866

It seems fine in the demo. Not a big deal for me


#2867

It’s just a different lighting model for the Miami map.

It is apparent to me that the model is physically the same the lighting is just very different and seems too bright in some areas. Light in 3D rendering doesn’t work the same way it does in the real world, so it’s easy to “rub out features” when certain lighting strength is too high.


#2868

People should hold off judgment until we see the other environments.

Considering what IOI went through to get to this point, I really doubt they’d bother to spend money to alter the hero model.


#2869

Telling by the fact this is just pre beta I’m confident it’ll be alright


#2870

My confidence is more that it appears that none of the old assets were changed, or needed changing. There was also a lot of work on new assets that would hardly justify mangling 47’s face.

At worst, that is 47’s “unposed” face rig when he is walking, which is something none of us have seen since whenever we make 47 walk forwards we only see the back of his head.

The other thing is no one noticed that Sierra Knox looks more glamorous in the Target tease photo, but looks much more “butch” in the teaser video - again… I take that down to lighting and face poses.

I am not worried because I can also see the model for her is physically the same.

I expect the game to look alright in full motion. :wink:


#2871

In darker shots it is clear that bump and wrinkle maps for the face of 47 are still there.

So everybody keep calm and carry on.

At any rate, overreacting to a video game hero’s face is hardly the correct response.


#2872

I doubt that’s an ingame footage.
I’m pretty sure that whole trailer was CGI


#2873

Well my position is that I’d play the game even if 47 grew back his “owlbrows” from Absolution.

The highlight of the reveal was the new Miami map.


#2874

Yeah it’s obviously going to change before November.

Like you say anyway it’s Pre-Alpha Footage.
