Those looking for an extra dose of Agent 47 may rejoice today as Square Enix have official revealed Hitman: Damnation, a new novel based on the star of their popular stealth assassination series Hitman.
Hitman: Damnation is written by author Raymond Benson and will release in North America in Summer 2012. No release date has been confirmed for other countries, but we assume that a UK release won’t be too far behind (after all it does take time to add in the missing ‘u’ in the word ‘colour’!)
Taking place between games Hitman: Blood Money and the upcoming Hitman: Absolution, HITMAN: DAMNATION follows legendary assassin Agent 47 as he attempts to complete his toughest assignment yet.Â 47 is charged with assassinating high-level American political figures, but he notices that some aspects of the mission donâ€™t add up as he is plunged into a web of lies, deceit, and murder.
Keep your eyes peeled to the official Hitman website for confirmation of a release in your neck of the woods.
