Earlier today, Io-Interactives Community Manger Travis Barbour announced on the PlayStation Blog that the PS4 version of Square Enix’s upcoming (and episodic) Hitman game will be getting six exclusive missions.
These six missions are called The Sarajevo Six, and will be released episodically. According to Barbour, The Sarajevo Six will “tell a self-contained side-story revolving around former members of a paramilitary unit called CICADA.”
As Agent 47, it will be your job to track down and kill all six of these members starting with the first mission, which will be released alongside the game itself on March 11. This first chapter will see Agent 47 hunting down the CICADA’s director of European Operations, Scott Sarno, in Paris. Players will have to stay on their toes, however, because Scott Sarno’s thirty years of experience have made him incredibly observant, and he will be accompanied by several CICADA agents.
Barbour also revealed that the Hitman beta will coming to the PS4 first later this month on Feb 12. While he didn’t state how long the beta will last, he revealed that players can guarantee access to the Beta now by either pre-ordering the Full Experience or the Intro Pack on the PlayStation Store. Players who pre-ordered the Hitman Collector’s Edition will also be guaranteed access to the beta.
Along with getting into the beta, players who pre-order the game will also get the Blood Money Requiem Pack for free. This pack includes Requiem legacy suit, Blood Money shirt, tie and gloves as well as the silenced ICA-19 chrome and a white explosive rubber duck for in-game use.
