Hitman Episode 5 finally has a release date. The penultimate episode will be available from 27th September. This episode will be set in Colorado, and sees Agent 47 taking on a very formidable mission.
Agent 47 must infiltrate a Colorado farm that has been converted in a militia training training camp and eliminate four targets. Sean Rose, Maya Pravati, Ezra Berg and Penelope Graves are four very dangerous people who each have their own particular set of skills. Agent 47 will need to use all the previously learned skills to succeed in this mission.
Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive has said:
“This is one of the toughest episodes yet. Not only do you have four targets, but from the moment you set foot in Colorado you’re on enemy ground. Freedom Fighters’ is a key episode, which will add serious momentum to the story and set up an intriguing season finale for players.”
Episode 5 brings new disguises, as well as 70 different challenges unlocking new gear, weapons and items as Hitman’s story builds towards the climax. The game’s season finale is set to release later in 2016, and will be set in Japan.
I personally will be waiting until the full game releases on disc before I buy it. How’s your experience with Hitman?
