The release date for the new Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh is May 31, 2016. Io-Interactive titled the mission Gilded Cage, and it enrolls Agent 47 to eliminate two primary targets: banker Claus Strandberg and General Reza Zaydan.
Square Enix said over the Hitman blog that these two targets will be tricky to take out, but once the player gets close, they will be able to obtain “some poetic justice.”
In a city whose population is on the verge of a full-scale riot, where the presence of military makes the tension run high, these are the instants before the rebellion.
The areas players can explore in Marrakesh are busy Berber markets, rooftop terraces, a clinical consulate and alleys crammed with shops and stalls; the location is built like an awesome maze.
Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh presents players will all sorts of new Challenges and Opportunities, Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts, to keep them busy. From here on Hitman will provide regular updates with three new locations: the United States, Thailand, and Japan, towards the end of the year.
Hitman started in March with the Prologue and Paris position, continued in April with the Episode 2: Sapienza, and now this end of May comes Episode 3: Marrakesh.
As part of the Full Pack, Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh is free. If you are an Intro Pack owner, you can either chose to purchase a location for $10 each or buy the Upgrade Pack, which will include this year’s updates including bonus and live content for the price of $50.
Hitman is available on Windows PCs, PlayStation4, and Xbox One.
Seventeen years ago Io-Interactive started its journey that culminated with the Hitman blockbuster series. The game is now in its sixth series. It stemmed from the success of Silent Assassin, Blood Money, and Absolution.
Square Enix is the creative force of leading development studios that gave us Final Fantasy, Dragos Quest, Tomb Raider, and Space Invaders, having sold worldwide over two thousand million copies of these beloved multiplatform games.
Now there’s nothing else to do, dear hitmen and hitwomen than to finish your targets in Paris or Sapienza, wrap up your business and hop on the next jet to get to the bustling streets of Marrakesh.
