The latest episode in the Hitman episodic game has now been announced on the game’s official website, and is set to be released in the coming weeks.
Episode 5 will be set in Colorado, USA, and the story mission this time around will be named “Freedom Fighters”. This episode follows Agent 47 as he must infiltrate a Colorado farm compound turned private militia training camp, in order to locate and assassinate his four new targets.
The targets are Sean Rose, Maya Parvati, Ezra Berg and Penelope Graves, each of whom are dangerous individuals possessing their own specialist skills ranging from environmental terrorism to chemical interrogation. This episode will bring around over 70 new challenges that will unlock brand new equipment, including weapons and other items, that players can use in all previously existing locations.

According to Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive:
“This is one of the toughest episodes yet. Not only do you have four targets, but from the moment you set foot in Colorado you’re on enemy ground. ‘Freedom Fighters’ is a key episode, which will add serious momentum to the story and set up an intriguing season finale for players.”
Hitman: Episode 5 is set for release on the 27th September for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC, and will unveil huge story details as the season builds towards the finale.
