HITMAN Episode 3 Coming Next Week

By Mark Delaney, 1 year ago
He's been to the capital of France as well as the fictional city of Sapienza. Now Agent 47 takes his fish-out-of-water globetrotting self to the Moroccan city of Marrakesh. A lot has been said about HITMAN's episodic format, but to their credit, IO Interactive has so far delivered on the one location per month schedule they promised.

The third episode cuts it close, though. The "Marrakesh" location add-on releases next Tuesday, May 31st as part of the full season. It can also be purchased separately for $9.99 or your regional equivalent. In Marrakesh, the titular hitman will be tasked with eliminating two targets: investment banker Claus Strandberg and Army General Reza Zaydan.

IO had this to say of the city:
In a city teeming with life on the brink of a full-scale riot, these are the moments before a coup d’état, where the visible military presence exacerbates a situation where tensions are running high.

Bustling Berber markets, alleyways crammed with stalls and shops, a clinical Swedish consulate and shaded rooftop terraces are just some of the areas that players can explore in Marrakesh.
Your flight is booked and your fiber wire conveniently fits in your carry-on. You're heading to Morocco on Tuesday.
