Humble Bundle has been a fantastic way to donate to a charitable cause to help those in need while helping yourself to some rather lovely games in the process. This season, Humble Bundle has teamed up with Square Enix to offer a doozy of a deal, not least of which includes getting Life is Strange Episode 1 for only a dollar.

Early Access "simply not the approach we're taking" with Hitman, assures IO Interactive

The episodic-style release for Hitman beginning this December isn't some Early Access program, reads a new FAQ from Square Enix and developer IO Interactive. That would suggest it's "something unfinished or unpolished".

Whatever they release episodically will be 'complete and polished' every time, from major new locations and missions to smaller live events with one-time assassinations. Also it's 'less episodic and more of a stream'.

Hiring an assassin has never been as cheap right now as the Hitman Collection on Steam is a whopping 80% off for all five of the series' major instalments which includes the most recent Hitman: Absolution and all its DLC.

The first three games are just 99p right now, and the Collection includes the spin-off Hitman: Sniper Challenge where as Agent 47 we snipe targets from afar and try and get the highest scores possible.

UPDATE: First gameplay footage shown in new trailer.

Ahead of the Square Enix E3 Conference, developer IO Interactive has spilled the beans on the new Hitman game, like the fact it's just called 'Hitman'. It's not a reboot, but it is the "foundation for future" instalments.

We're controlling a younger Agent 47. IO want a "pure assassin fantasy" and felt the simplicity of just calling it Hitman fit. We'll take out targets in "more detailed, more populated and much larger" areas.
