Hitman: Absolution aiming to teach gamers how to improvise
IO Interactive are hoping that they can teach gamers the lost art of improvisation with Hitman: Absolution.
The game's director Tore Bylstad wants the new Hitman game to allow gamers to explore different approaches to each situation in the game by improvising, an approach which he believes many modern games have drummed out of gamers.
Bylstad explained, "It's quite difficult, actually, to educate players that this is what the game is trying to serve you, because people are increasingly used to games where you're told to do one thing, and if you stray from this line, there will be nothing else around."
"It's like, you have this experience, and that's it. So we're telling people, actually, 'No, no, no. You choose by yourself,'" he added.
Hitman: Absolution is out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 20th.
