IO Interactive has another trailer for Hitman: Absolution but this one focuses more on Agent 47's backstory more than anything.

Possibly the last ICA (International Contract Agency) video feature before the game ships, this one aims to catch players up to speed on Agent 47's origins and why he's now being hunted down with orders to kill. For those who's been with the series back when it started, the facts listed will be old news to you, although you might find a kick in seeing a lot of bald killers all in one place.

Hitman: Absolution is once again being developed by IO Interactive and not only is this the first Hitman game made exclusively for current-gen platforms. It will contain five diffiiculty modes, which you can read about here.

While there's demo scheduled for Absolution, there is a 17-minute clip that showcases gameplay. It seems to be a mixture of Arkham City with bits of Splinter Cell sprinkled in and mashed with Hitman's original game mechanics. Will it be enough to pull players from the other assassin? Yes, I'm talking about Connor from Assassin's Creed 3. 

Hitman: Absolution will be out on November 20 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
