Agent 47's episodic journey in HITMAN
won't be continued until April 26th, but Square Enix has released four stunning screenshots
to tide fans over in the meantime.
Though the first episode was set in the very real city of Paris, France, the second installment will take the veteran assassin and players to "Sapienza," a fictional coastal town in Italy.
Developer IO Interactive had this
to say about the new city:
As we said in our last update, we want to keep an element of discovery and exploration in Sapienza, more than we had with Paris. There’ll be new information revealed in the weeks leading up to the release of Episode Two and we are making sure there will be plenty of stones left unturned for you to discover and share with other players. There are some great stories to be told in Sapienza and we’re looking forward to telling you more about them, but not before you’ve discovered them first.
"Sapienza" will be free to download at release for owners of HITMAN The Full Experience
. For players who own the base HITMAN Intro Pack
, "Sapienza" will be available for purchase separately, and can also be obtained by upgrading to the full version of the game via the HITMAN Upgrade Pack
As for Episode 3, there is no release date yet. What we do know is it will take place in the new backdrop of Marrakesh, Morocco.
