HITMAN Episode 4: Bangkok Dated and Detailed

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
It's been a while since we had a new HITMAN location. Last month developer Io-Interactive strayed from the traditional location release schedule and instead put out a summer bonus episode that took place in two familiar cities, Sapienza and Marrakesh.

We already knew the "where" of Episode 4 was Thailand's Bangkok, now we can get some background on the "why." Although Bangkok is a rather exciting city for many, Agent 47 doesn't travel for fun; he travels for business. In the Club 27 mission, 47 will travel to the Himmapan resort to kill indie rockstar Jordan Cross and Cross' lawyer, Ken Morgan.

As with the other episodes, Io has promised new gear and weapons, new opportunities and more than 65 new challenges. Of course, with the musical nature of this episode, they have also promised that you can take "creative liberties with musical instruments" and said that they had a blast creating the intricacies of the luxury resort, as hotels have always been a fan-favorite assassination destination in past Hitman titles.

You can also study Mr. Cross, your next target, in the music video below:

"Episode 4: Bangkok" will be available on August 16th. If you're looking for more contracts in the meantime, remember that the clock is ticking down on The Broker Elusive Target, which will be available until August 8th.
