Hitman is due to launch on March 11, but PlayStation 4 players will get the chance to go hands on with the game nearly a month before then, as the beta for the game is set for February 12. PS4 players can get access to the beta by pre-ordering Hitman from the PSN Store- pre-ordering either the first episode, or the full game will do. The Hitman Collector’s Edition will also include access to the beta.
That’s not all- we also got some brand new details on the game’s story, and how it will be structured.
“Hitman will launch on March 11th as a truly episodic game experience with a major live component,” Travis Barbour, the community manager for IO Interactive, said on the PlayStation Blog. “The episodic nature of Hitman allows us to craft both individual stories centred on Agent 47’s targets as well as longer season stories involving 47, Diana Burnwood, the ICA, and an entirely new main cast.
“The structure is inspired by contemporary TV series’ and will unfold over multiple seasons. To begin with, the overall story and the individual mission stories run in parallel but as the first season progresses, the tracks will merge and become one.”
We also got a brand new trailer for the game, which you can see for yourself below. Hitman is set to launch on March 11 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and will continue to be updated with new episodes for the rest of the year.
