Hitman: Absolution is an action-adventure stealth game developed by I/O Interactive and published by Square Enix. It is the fifth entry in the Hitman game series, and runs on I/O 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).




Hitman: Absolution numbers look great at 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050. Moving to the higher 2560 x 1600 resolution though, we can see that while the minimum FPS is strong at 42 FPS, the average at 51 FPS is just a little too low for us. Again, it's not until we move to the R9 280X 3GB that we can see playable numbers at the higher resolution.
