‘Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh’ Update: ‘Agent 47’ Returns May 31 On PS4, Xbox One, PC With Exciting New Mission
Square Enix has announced that "Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh," will be dropped on May 31 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions. Amid Square Enix's "Hitman" setback in the disc version of the game, the digital version of the title continues to move forward through its seven-episode outline, with the first episode entitled "Paris" released in March and "Sapienza" the second episode released in April.
IO Interactive, Hitman's developer has prepared something extraordinary and bigger than the big fashion show event in "Paris" and the extensive milieu of "Sapienza." By itself, the team decided to decisively create the environment of the episode as something that is bigger than life, with many things to incorporate including alleyways to enliven and showcase the real-life city of the Moroccan soil, Tech Times reported.
Square Enix said that the team exerted so much effort to make sure that this episode's "lure of voyeurism" and the "thrill of infiltration" are done appropriately and accurately. There will be two featured targets. The initial target will be a private banker named Claus Strandberg while the second one will be General Reza Zaydan.
Located within the Swedish Consulate, Strandberg will be highly secure. Meanwhile, Zaydan will be accompanied by an elite group of soldiers while attempting to coup up at a provisional headquarters at the center of the city, Tech Times added. These new targets will accelerate the level of challenges to gamers where sories are coming out which will give details on need to take them out.
Additionally, "Marrakesh" adds up a wider range of opportunities and challenges. There will also be a new setting for Contracts Mode where players will be able to access Escalation Contracts and Elusive Targets that will take place in the Moroccan city, Tech Times said. But players will have only one chance with a limited time to take out an Elusive Target. With the previous one, only 53 percent of players were allowed to do so with less than 10 percent receiving the Silent Assassin rating.
"Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh" drops on PS4, Xbox One and PC May 31 for $9.99, Engadget said.
