Hitman Episode 2 - Sapienza Latest Updates
IO Interactive seemed like they were on top of the world when the episodic HITMAN gained acclaim with each new mission. Then, once it was all wrapped up, the truth came out. Figures weren't up to snuff for Square Enix causing them to break ties with the developers.
We've been sat here wondering when news of the next 'season' of HITMAN would begin, but with a new bonus mission now out for the current one, our expectations are all over the floor.
Despite reviewing and greatly enjoying every episode of Hitman so far, I still haven’t managed to go after any of the game’s limited-time elusive targets. The sixth mark will hit the game this weekend, and it sounds like there’s an extra trick to taking him out. Even if you fail, at least it will be a reason to revisit Sapienza.
IO Interactive has announced today that the third episode for Hitman, Marrakesh, will launch on the 31st May, which is next Tuesday.
Agent 47 is on a journey to the capital of Morocco in the Marrakesh episode, where he's on the hunt for two targets; an army General and a private banker. The mission is called The Gilded Cage and private banker Claus Strandberg believes he's safe within the walls of the Swedish Consulate, while the Army General Reza Zaydan is guarded by his elite soldiers at the headquarters in town.
One of the selling points of the latest Hitman game was the idea of elusive targets, and tomorrow we will finally get the opportunity to take one down.
In case you aren’t aware of what the elusive targets are, they are special custom-created characters that are added to existing locations. These targets are placed only for a limited amount of time, but that’s not in-game time, you’ll only have two real days to take this target down. Part of the challenge is the elusive target can only be taken down once. If you mess up your opportunity then that’s too bad, the target will be gone forever. If you kill the target in a way that wasn’t optimal, again, too bad. You won’t be given a second chance, so don’t mess it up.
