If you’ve watched the gameplay trailer then there’s not much new here, but Square Enix have issued out a quartet of murderous screenshots taken directly from the gameplay trailer.
If you haven’t watched the gameplay trailer, you probably should, because I only just noticed now (when confirming that these screens are from the trailer) how bloody funny it is. There’s the “throwing a crowbar at someone”, the cheeky grin after poisoning a drink, the “putting head in the toilet” method of assassination…
These screenshots are less “overt silliness” and more “cool posing”, sadly. There’s a set of stage decorations/lights collapsing on an unwitting target, and three shots of 47 posing and looking cool.

Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
