If you ever wanted to know just what sort of events lead up to a young lady becoming a leather-clad bride of Christ, we've got all the answers in this new trailer for Hitman: Absolution, which features the background training endured by the Saints.
Of course, this is a follow-up to the pre-E3 release of that Hitman trailer, which was our first taste of the nuns in fetish gear. Unsurprisingly, it raised a lot of eyebrows and a lot of controversy. Groups of gamers around the world were horrified, but nobody can argue that it drew plenty of attention toward the upcoming FPS.
Rather than sweep 'em under the rug, or downplay the girls' controversial inclusion, IO Interactive has instead decided to place this particular enemy upon a pedestal (or is that an altar?).
The Saints have been brought on-board by the International Contract Agency, Agent 47's former employers. The Agency wants 47 dead. The Saints are happy to oblige. You can find out more when Hitman: Absolution hits shelves for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 20th.
