Today, Io-Interactive and Square Enix gave the first glimpse of a new location for the upcoming HITMAN, available on March 11th 2016. The video, which debuted at Paris Games Week today, shows off sunny Sapienza, a fictional town situated on the southern coast of Italy.
Cut to the atmospheric track “Between Two Points” by The Glitch Mob featuring Swan, the video gives players a sense of the expansive scale of the location. From a luxurious mansion to the medieval church situated by the beach and the cramped alleys littered with stores, Sapienza is a dense location full of challenges and packed with opportunities and stories for the enterprising player to unfold. And as with all locations within HITMAN, dark secrets and engaging stories are everywhere to be found in charming Sapienza.
HITMAN is a single player creative stealth action game, featuring the world’s ultimate assassin, Agent 47, in the prime of his career. As an operative of the International Contract Agency, his job is to take out powerful, high-profile targets around the world. Where each location is a living sandbox, where every NPC has a name and every room matters. The game has a pure focus on taking out your target and complete freedom of approach. Where you go, when you strike and who you kill… is all up to you. You have the power and intelligence of Agent 47 at your fingertips and it is your choice whether to use brute force or orchestrate a genuine masterpiece of assassination.
