Square Enix has announced it will release a “Summer Bonus Episode” for Hitman on July 19, between the launches of the already available Episode 3 and the upcoming Episode 4.
The Summer Bonus Episode consists of two missions set in the Sapienza and Marrakesh locations. It will present players with a range of new in-game Challenges and Opportunities, with a new setting for Escalation Contracts and Elusive Targets. Here’s an overview:
When the town of Sapienza is taken over by a film crew shooting a new sci-fi blockbuster. Agent 47 must aim to retire one of the cast members during a climactic scene being staged late at night in the town square.
A House Built on Sand
Set at the frenetic night markets in Marrakesh, a mole for a major construction company is about to sell secrets to their largest rivals. Agent 47 is tasked with making sure the leak stops there.
“We’ve created not one, but two missions for the Summer Bonus Episode and players will revisit the hugely popular Sapienza and Marrakesh locations with a completely different feel,” said Io Interactive studio head Hannes Seifert. “It allows us to show what we can do with Hitman as a live game – we even introduced a crazy giant killer robot, but it’s also the perfect midway point in the Hitman season before the final three locations.”
