Square Enix and IO-Interactive have just confirmed the release date for the second episode of the all-new Hitman game. The game is scheduled to be rolled out in a total of 5 episodes, one of which has been available since March 11 this year as part of an Intro Pack. Meanwhile, Episode 2, titled Sapienza, is slated to arrive on April 26 in a little over three weeks from now.
Sapienza takes place in a brand new location, featuring a fictional coastal town with new targets, disguises and challenges for Agent 47 to tackle. Just as with the Intro Pack, those who purchase Episode 2 will have the opportunity to participate in the game’s on-going development by providing crucial feedback to IO-Interactive.
Hitman’s Intro Pack features a prologue and Paris missions. While the prologue is brief and is essentially a way to familiarize players with the game’s mechanics, the Paris mission boasts a large sandbox that provides the meat of the experience.
