The new Hitman game is off to a great start. It’s an episodic title and IO Interactive has already released two episodes that take Agent 47 to Paris and Sapienza respectively. The developer confirmed the Hitman Episode 3 release date today. It follows up quite nicely to the big fashion show event of Paris and the expansive nature of Sapienza.
Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh has been confirmed today. The developer says that episode three had to be extraordinary as it takes the baton from Paris and Sapienza.
The team built Marrakesh with a maze of alleys, a variety of souks that line the medina walls, and they even put in a proper shisha café. Players can even enjoy the shade on the rooftop terraces of Marrakesh. Beyond the busy marketplace, players will find the Swedish Consulate building.
Players will take out two main targets in Marrakesh, the first is a private banker called Claus Strandberg who is holed up inside the Swedish Consulate and the other is army General Reza Zaydan who is protected by his elite squad of soldiers are a temporary headquarters in the heart of Marrakesh.
IO Interactive says that both targets will be challenging to reach and both will have some entertaining special moments attached to them which will enable players to give them some poetic justice. Marrakesh also brings more live content for players as it has been designed to keep them busy with a wide range of challenges. It’s also going to be the location for the upcoming Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts.
Hitman Episode 3 is going to be released on May 31st for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
