Agent 47 doesn’t fully return to action until March 2016, but gamers will get the first chance to step back into his shoes a month earlier.
Square Enix announced the Hitman beta will begin February 12, 2016 on PlayStation 4 and February 19th on PC. Pre-ordering the game will guarantee access to the beta-no word yet if the beta can be accessed by other means. The Hitman beta journeys to the past where a young Agent 47 is a top secret recruitment for the ICA. Watch the teaser trailer below and see the origins of a cold blooded assassin.
It would be cool to see Square Enix do some kind of open beta so I could test out the game without pre-ordering. The switch to episodic content for the franchise is an interesting one and the more people who test out the game can only help with getting players committed to the series.
