“Diana Burnwood is to Agent 47 what Q is to James Bond.”
So says actress Marsha Thomason, who plays the role of Agent 47’s handler in the upcoming multiplatform title Hitman: Absolution.
The game is still without a firm release date but that doesn’t mean we can’t be introduced to its cast while developer IO Interactive puts the finishing touches to one of the most promising titles of 2012.
The first entry in ‘The International Contract Agency Files’ video series takes a look at the aforementioned Diana Burnwood who has served alongside Agent 47 for many years. A second, related video then reveals the performance capture work that went into making Diana a believable character in the game.
Hitman: Absolution will be released for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 sometime in 2012. You can browse through El33tonline’s previous coverage of the game over here.
