Pegged as a “true Hitman fantasy”.
IO Interactive’s Hitman was announced during Sony’s E3 2015 and will launch on December 8th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Like previous games, you’ll be traveling to exotic locations like Paris and Italy and assassinating high profile targets.
Creative director Christian Elverdam stated that, “This is a true Hitman fantasy, a highly challenging, thinking person’s game where creativity is rewarded. You have the power and intelligence of Agent 47 at your fingertips and it is your choice whether to use brute force or orchestrate a genuine masterpiece of assassination.”
There will be increased levels of freedom in the new Hitman, especially in the Sandbox. Interestingly, the game will be out on digital first, allowing players to immerse themselves into the world. The story will evolve over time and ultimately conclude in 2016.
Studio head Hannes Seifert said that, “This is new ground for Hitman, coming out digital first enables us to do something new, bold and exciting. We are building a live, expanding and evolving world of assassination where we continuously develop the game, listening closely to the players as we release new locations, missions and hits as soon as they are ready – where $60 and not a dollar more gets you full access to the experience.”
