The developer today revealed the Hitman Episode 5 location and release date. The latest episode is set in Colorado, USA and it’s going to be released later this month.
The story mission for Hitman Episode 5 is titled “Freedom Fighters” and IO Interactive says that it’s not to be taken likely. Agent 47 will be tasked with infiltrating a Colorado farm compound that has been converted into a private militia training camp.
