IO Interactive brings sweeping changes to Hitman 3 in two weeks, consolidating it and the first two games into Hitman World of Assassination. In addition, the new Freelancer mode will also go live, adding a rogue-lite spin to the assassination gameplay loop. Check out the latest cinematic trailer below, which sees Diana Burnwood outlining what to expect.
Freelancer sees Agent 47 taking mission chains to take down different Syndicates. Choose a Syndicate, identify its lower members and then work your way up to a Showdown with the head honcho. You can find and purchase weapons and tools during Contract Missions or complete challenges to earn the same (along with more payout).
You also earn Mastery, which unlocks more levels in the Safehouse, along with options like a wardrobe for disguises, a shooting range, and other customization options. If you fail in a Showdown, the campaign begins again – choose another Syndicate and repeat.
Hitman Freelancer goes live on January 26th for all platforms. For more details, head here.
