Travis Barbour Community Manager at Io-Interactive, has today taken to the official PlayStation blog to reveal details of the new Hitman Episode 3 Marrakesh instalment that will be arriving in a few days time on May 31st, 2016.
The episodic release of the new Hitman game has experienced mixed reviews with gamers, although it appears the majority of Hitman fans really enjoy looking forward to the next mission.
If you are not so keen on an episodic approach, as soon as all episodes have been released, Io-Interactive will make the game and every episode available to purchase in one go. Io-Interactive Community Manager explains more about what you can expect from the next mission being made available later this week.
Following up on the big fashion show event in Paris and the expansive nature of Sapienza, we knew that Marrakesh had to be something extraordinary. So the team set out to build a location that was both teeming with life and with things to do. Marrakesh has been built with a maze of alleys, a range of souks that line the medina walls, and a fully fletched shisha café. Moving upwards, players can enjoy the shade on the signature rooftop terraces of Marrakesh.
As with any Hitman level, Marrakesh promises players the lure of voyeurism and the thrill of infiltration and it’s something we’ve been working hard on getting just right. Offering two targets, the “Gilded Cage” mission challenges players to eliminate private banker Claus Strandberg, holed up inside the secure Swedish Consulate, and army General Reza Zaydan, protected by his elite squad of soldiers at a temporary headquarters in the heart of the city. Both targets will be challenging to reach and both will of course have some entertaining special moments attached to them that will allow players to dole out some poetic justice.
With Marrakesh also comes a lot more live content for players to engage with and the busy markets and locked-down consulate will provide us with great settings for our live features. Episode 3 will has been designed to keep players busy with a wide range of challenges and opportunities and along with an entirely new setting for Contracts mode, Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts, we are dying to see what you come up with.
