After plenty of questions, Square Enix has revealed the launch details for the new “Hitman” game coming next year. The game has been hyped up as something like an episodic experience, but many were confused about the approach. Now Square Enix has finally decided to spill details on what will come during and after the game’s launch.
When the new “Hitman” game launches, it will come with three locations: Paris, Sapienza and Marakesh. Each location has two missions each, leading to a total of six campaign missions. Weekly events will also be part of the game. The launch version of the game will also come with a Contracts mode, which gives players 800 targets to dispose of in any way they choose.
In the months after the game’s release, the developers plan on releasing three more sandbox locations: Thailand in April, America in May and Japan in June, Polygon reported. Each new release will come with more missions, targets for Contracts mode, new disguises, new weapons and new signature kills for more deadly assassinations. More weekly events will also be added per location, which should make for some chaotic fun.
According to the official “Hitman” site, customers will have the option to purchase the Introduction Pack for $34.99 and upgrade later for $29.99, or they can buy the Full Experience for $59.99. The introduction pack will only have the March content and all of its live events; players must be upgraded for $29.99 to get the rest of the content. Those who purchase the full experience will gain access to the March content and all of the locations that come afterward.
In addition, customers who purchase the full experience will gain access to the game’s beta test, which will only be available for the PlayStation 4 and the PC. No date has been given for the beta test as of this time, though there will be no additional cost in participating in it.
“Hitman” will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 11. The Full Experience is available for pre-order right now, while the Introduction Pack will be available for pre-order in November.
