Hitman: Absolution to be released for Mac this spring
Feral Interactive has announced today that its stealth-action game Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition will be available for Mac users this spring. Players take on the role of Agent 47, a genetically-engineered contract killer, who protects a young girl while being hunted by police and former employers. Players utilize the character's superhuman capabilities to become a skilled assassin, and complete storied missions throughout the game.

Pricing and a release date are not yet available.
