At Square Enix’s E3 presentation, the announcement was made that a new chapter in the popular series Hitman will soon begin. Launching on December 8th, 2015, Hitman is the sixth game in the series and has players perform contracts on powerful, high-profile targets in various locations around the world. You can go from Paris, to the coast of Italy, to the dusty, musty markets of Marrakesh and still make it home in time to clean your weapon.
“This is a true Hitman fantasy, a highly challenging, thinking person’s game where creativity is rewarded,” said Christian Elverdam, Creative Director, Io-Interactive. “You have the power and intelligence of Agent 47 at your fingertips and it is your choice whether to use brute force or orchestrate a genuine masterpiece of assassination.”
Gameplay for Hitman focuses on taking out targets in large and detailed sandbox style- levels with complete freedom of approach. Where to go, when to strike and who to kill – it is all up to you.
“This is new ground for Hitman, coming out digital first enables us to do something new, bold and exciting,” said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive. “We are building a live, expanding and evolving world of assassination where we continuously develop the game, listening closely to the players as we release new locations, missions and hits as soon as they are ready – where $60 and not a dollar more gets you full access to the experience.”
