If you’ve been thinking that the latest Hitman game just didn’t have enough content then be prepared as two brand new unscheduled episodes are coming, and will be part of the game’s Full Experience pack.
These new missions, entitled Icon and The House Built on Sand, come as part of the Summer Bonus Episode and act as completely standalone missions, not part of the main story arc of the game. They catalogue Agent 47’s first trips to both Sapienza and Marrakesh.
The first mission, The Icon, has Agent 47 tasked with the mission of infiltrating a film crew who are shooting a new sci-fi blockbuster and take down one of the cast members during one of the movie’s scenes late at night.
The House Built on Sand, the second mission, will have players whisk off to Marrakesh once again as Agent 47 attempts to find the mole who’s about to leak information to a rival company.
“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 Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive. “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.”
These Summer Bonus Episodes will come with their own Challenges and Opportunities as well as Elusive Targets, and will be offered for free as part of the game’s Season Pass.
