Io Interactive has shared the release date for the upcoming episode of Hitman for the PS4 and Xbox One. This new episode is set in Marrakesh and will be released on May 31st.
Hitman Episode 3 will be set in the city of Marrakesh after Sapienza and Paris for the earlier two episodes. For this new mission, players will take control of Agent 47 to eliminate two targets in two different missions.
“Gilded Cage” mission challenges players to eliminate private banker Claus Strandberg, holed up inside the secure Swedish Consulate, and army General Reza Zaydan, protected by his elite squad of soldiers at a temporary headquarters in the heart of the city.
In addition to adding a new locale, this episode will introduce new Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts in the Contracts mode.
Hitman is available now for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It was developed by Io Interactive and published by Square Enix. It is the first Hitman game to launch with an episodic approach. Players have the choice to get either one of the episode or the complete game for the standard price. The full game will launch in Fall 2016 so if you can’t wait for each of the episode, you can wait until later this year to enjoy the full game.
