And there will be four targets.
Checking in on the new 'Hitman,' thus far there have been four episodes plus a bonus. That includes the Intro (see the review here), 'Sapienza' (review here), 'Marrakesh' (review here), the Summer Bonus Episode (review here), and 'Bangkok' (review here).
And now, the fifth episode has been announced with a September 27th release date. Episode 5 has been dubbed 'Colorado' to help indicate its setting, but really, the private military camp and its four targets hearken back to IO Interactive's past. The mission, 'Freedom Fighters' will see Agent 47 targetting four "special skills" type people. Such skills include environmental terrorism and chemical interrogation.
From IO Studio Head Hannes Seifert, "This is one of the toughest episodes yet. Not only do you have four targets, but from the moment you set foot in Colorado you’re on enemy ground. 'Freedom Fighters' is a key episode, which will add serious momentum to the story and set up an intriguing season finale for players.”
With Episode 5 announced and coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 27th, what remains is the final episode, 'Japan,' which is expected later on this year.
