Episode 3 of Hitman has received a release date and it is coming very soon.
The next episode will hit this coming Tuesday, May 31st. It will be set in the city of Marrakesh, and the main mission, Gilded Caged, will have two assassination targets. One is Reza Zaydan, an army general, who is located somewhere in the middle of the city. The other is Swedish banker, Claus Strandberg, who is located inside of the Swedish Consulate. No specific details have been revealed about the mission, but IO Interactive promises there will be “entertaining special moments attached to [it].”
Additionally, more “live content” is promised. Live content takes form in Escalation Contracts, contracts that have specific requirements and have several levels of difficulty, Elusive Contracts, contracts that are available for a limited amount of real world time, and player created contracts. Again, no specifics were mentioned, but it can be assumed that Escalation Contracts will be added once a week, as with the first two episodes.
Hitman is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Episode 2’s biggest fault was the addition of a non-assassination objective, so I’m glad they stuck with just two targets for this episode.
