A new trailer for Hitman: Absolution has been released - and it's pretty brutal.

The three-minute clip features the loveable Agent 47 tending his wounds in a bathroom, while a line of nuns march towards his hotel.

Then the nuns remove their cowls, revealing PVC outfits, stilettos and a selection of assault rifles and rocket launchers.

And when the Hitman appears... well you can guess the rest.

Of course, violence is nothing new when it comes to Hitman - or video games in general.

Still the clip has nonetheless raised a few eyebrows since its public release - with some offended by the graphic scenes of nose-breaking, gunshots and violence against women.

Take a look above - and let us know in the poll whether you think it's offensive or not...
