For those of you itching to get back into the Hitman episodic game, episode 3 will be released next week on May 31. This time, players will be brought to Marrakesh, where they’ll get to explore a new locale ripe with Elusive Targets and other live content.
“Following up on the big fashion show event in Paris and the expansive nature of Sapienza, we knew that Marrakesh had to be something extraordinary. So the team set out to build a location that was both teeming with life and with things to do. Marrakesh has been built with a maze of alleys, a range of souks that line the medina walls, and a fully fletched shisha café. Moving upwards, players can enjoy the shade on the signature rooftop terraces of Marrakesh.
With Marrakesh also comes a lot more live content for players to engage with and the busy markets and locked-down consulate will provide us with great settings for our live features. Episode 3 will has been designed to keep players busy with a wide range of challenges and opportunities and along with an entirely new setting for Contracts mode, Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts, we are dying to see what you come up with.”
IO Interactive announced a few days ago that only about half the player base managed to successfully assassinate the very first Elusive Target. Let’s see how we fare against the next one in Marrakesh.
