Hitman: Absolution is an action-adventure stealth game developed by IO Interactive and published by Square Enix. It is the fifth entry in the Hitman game series, and runs on IO Interactive's proprietary Glacier 2 game engine. Before release, the developers stated that Absolution would be easier to play and more accessible, while still retaining hardcore aspects of the franchise. The game was released on 20 November 2012, which is in the 47th week of the year (in reference to the protagonist, Agent 47).
Across the board we see a boost in performance under Hitman. The most useful gains come at 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200, though, with those averages being pushed closer to the FPS 60 mark, which complement the 30 FPS minimum we're achieving rather well.
