Agent 47 has conquered his first two targets, now in his sights – Episode 3. The episodic Hitman adventure has moved onto its third entry. Entitled, Marrakesh, we’re moving on to foes in France’s 4th largest city.
The development team over at Io-Interactive ” set out to build a location that was both teeming with life and with things to do.” The city consists of alley ways, souks that line the streets, upper level terraces and rooftops to explore. Agent 47 will also have the task of exploring the Swedish Consulate building, which is described as “the very embodiment of minimalistic Scandinavian design, a mix of glass, concrete and wood offering a powerful contrast to the blazing heat just outside its walls.”
But it’s not all sightseeing as you make your way through Marrakesh – there’s a job to do, of course. Inside the Swedish Consulate hides Claus Stranberg, a private banker, and General Reza Zaydan protected by his elite squadron. In the “Gilded Cage” missions you’re tasked with taking them – without being found out in the process.
There will also be new additions to Episode 3 to keep players around for as long as possible. New Elusive Targets, new Escalation Contracts and a totally new locale for Contracts mode. Io-Interactive is trying to make these Hitman Episodes as worthwhile as possible, and Marrakesh appears to be no exception.
Episode 3: Marrakesh will be available for download on May 31st. Get your suit and tie ready.
