Square Enix brought "Hitman" to life in a real time live game!

Youtubers got to play as Agent 47 for real!

Square Enix in a company that's been constantly pushing the boundaries of a real feel in video games. Most of the times, their games feel more like a movie than a game, both in what you see and in the immersive experience they are so good at.

The popular video game developing company recently gave a handful of people the experience of a lifetime. Ahead of the release of the next installment in their incredibly popular HITMAN series, they built a real live set to play home to a very different gaming experience. Rather than just play the game with a controller, these people got to control a real Agent 47 by feeding him directions on how to take out his target and get away clean.

And while everything may not have gone exactly according to plan, everyone involved had a great time acting as the handler for Agent 47.

You may not get to control your very own real-life Agent 47, but with new HITMAN title recently released you can have the next best thing. The flexible gameplay you saw in the real-life version of the game comes directly from the game itself. Any and all methods of eliminating your target that your creative mind can come up with are fair game. 

I don't know about you, but when I first saw the video, I couldn't tell if it was a video game or real action :P
