Hitman: Blood Money goes gold, gets demo

GameSpot hosting premiere of Io Interactive's single-player PC demo; all versions finish development, release May 30.

by

It's time once again to clean the twin ballers, make sure that double Windsor knot is tight, and polish that chrome dome. Hitman: Blood Money, starring the very professional and very bald Agent 47, has gone gold and will hit store shelves on May 30. In Blood Money, the series makes its next-gen debut on the Xbox 360, and it will also be released on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC.

PC gamers who can't wait until May 30 to string some fiber wire around an unsuspecting target's neck won't have to. A demo of the game will premiere on GameSpot on Monday, May 22, at 9 a.m. PDT.

The series has gotten progressively darker, and if the single-player demo is any indication, Blood Money steps further into the macabre. The sampling features the first level of the game, which sees Agent 47 tracking down a target through a run-down theme park that has been converted into a makeshift drug lab.

Hitman: Blood Money is rated M for Mature and will retail for $59.99 on the Xbox 360 and $39.99 on all other systems. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

Interesting...the newspaper at the end of the demo reflects how well you did in the mission. I wonder if its possible to get it so that the headline doesn't even mention a "killer" or hitman...that would be awsome, aka a perfect job

ARGH....I wanted to give this game a try on 360 before I bought it but it does look like one of the more interesting games for the 360. It's at least worth a rental.

This game looks like it's got a lot of potential. I hope it is better than the others; although I still like the others. BTW people, if you don't like the Hitman series, then don't waste your time posting...

man so many 360 people here!!people who complain about the prices get real. Reason pc games are so cheap is due that mass downloading about and i dont see it stopping, consoles have piracy but not to the extent as pc so get over it. Also stop complaining about 360 prices due to the fact 1) its a new consoles 2) the ps3 games are probably going to be prices like that as well 3) complanies are exploiting you 4)that what you get for getting xbox 360 so soon, in a couple of months or a year it will reduce. I I have to say that hitman its my fav game ever, hitman 1 and 2 classic 3 not so bad but nowhere as good as first two, hitman 4 hopefully the best Oh yeah buy the way you guys now this is probably the last hitman which the guy with the cool voice due to them making a film about it and games after that will be with vin diesel

Hitman is one the best games I have ever played...It may not have the BEST gameplay, or graphics or voice acting but damn it has the baddest, the meanest, the most cool charachter you will find in a video game (IMO)

The hit man series is great. One of the few games with good re-play value and long lasting fun.

starspysp- you could be stealthy in 2. I loved being stealthy in HT2 and be rewarded with that title... cant remember the name. Mass Murderer suck.

yes finally a reason so actually try and be stealthy, the other ones sucked cause you could just run around like a murderer and just kill everyone, now you have to actually play stealthy. Hitman such a great game still.

PC gaming aint dead. One thing I love about the PC is how the games are cheaper. The PC may cost 2 or 3 times more than the Xbox 360 but we save money on the games. And also we can use our PCs for everythign else too like photos, movies, pictures, editing, and the web. I have been a PC gamer since age 5. And everytime I play a console I always end up back on a PC gaming cause its just such a better expierence. I also enjoy the fun of tweaking my pc to get every extra frame per second out of her.

Hitman is God the best of its kind. i would have to say Hitman is in a league of his own killing kind. there is probably nothing else that you can compare to this game or all the hitman games. Can't wait for the new OMG!!! looks great

Hitman games are great havn't you played the second one? This one will be bloody awsome its done right and it looks that way and as for that guy who said PC gaming is dead. YOUR AN IDIOT!. PC gaming is leading the way in the latest technology of today and the latest best most technically accomplished games to date. I didn't see HL2, one of the greatest games looking all that great on X-Box. You can go to hell with your out of date consoles.
