What Does A Squad Of Gun-Toting Fetish Nuns Have To Do With Hitman: Absolution?

What Does A Squad Of Gun-Toting Fetish Nuns Have To Do With Hitman: Absolution?

Teasing tomorrow’s release of the official Hitman: Absolution E3 trailer, Square Enix teases us with an image depicting eight ladies dress in vinyl nun costumes wielding a wide variety of powerful firearms. Could Hitman: Absolution feature the world’s first nun-based online multiplayer? I hope so.

Some sort of multiplayer reveal is what’s expected, but really there could be any number of explanations as to why Square Enix is rolling out nuns in high heels so late in the game. Perhaps it’s a new co-op mode aimed at emasculating players as effectively as possible. Maybe they just had some extra nun costumes sitting around. Just because I can’t think of any more possibilities doesn’t mean they aren’t there.

In case there was any doubt over the nunliness of these ladies, the UK’s Metro ran this image earlier today:

Definitely nuns. Well, definitely women dressed as nuns. It looks like a scene straight out of Atlanta’s local goth clubs circa 1995, only with slightly more assault rifle.

The full reveal will come tomorrow. For now we wait, trying our best not to look up ‘fetish nun’ in Google images with Safe Search turned off.


  • I have seen the trailer. Its basically Agent 47 at a broken down hotel. A group of clothed nuns appear, then suddenly fire on him. No multiplayer content just a sick trailer. Initially I thought it was a real world trailer because the model of 47 was so realistic. Ends in a crazy firefight between 47 and the nuns WITH LOTS OF BLOOD!
    Dont ask how i saw it cause I cannot say.

    • I seen it too :p
      Was totally awesome, wasn’t expecting much or nuns when u saw their feet walking down the street lol, then u saw the cloths and cross’s around their necks and was like whaaa

  • To answer the question in the title… Agent 47 was trained by preists/religious types… nice try though.

    • Because when I think Hitman, I think Militant nun’s and crazy firefights.


      God, I hope they just give me Blood Money 2. Throw on whatever tatty multiplayer/co-op fedora totting, nun shooting nonsense you want, but at least deliever a solid single player game on par with your last outing.

    • I’m not sure the Adeptus Sororitas have such a PVC fetish.

      Sounds more like an Inquisitorial thing to me.
