The first season of IO Interactive’s Hitman is still going strong, and now the developer has revealed details regarding season one’s penultimate episode. Episode 5 is set to launch in the last week of this month, and takes Agent 47 to Colorado to take down his latest victims.
The episode is titled “Freedom Fighters”.
“Players are presented with an intense infiltration mission to locate and take out four targets,” reads a press release. “Sean Rose, Maya Parvati, Ezra Berg and Penelope Graves are four very different, very dangerous people, each with their own specialist skillset ranging from environmental terrorism to chemical interrogation. This will be the toughest assignment yet for Agent 47. Players must utilize all the skills learned so far.”
“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,” said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive. “‘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 will have “all-new opportunities and disguises” as well as “70 different challenges unlocking brand new gear, weapons, and items.”
Hitman: The Complete First Season, which contains all the content released for the game so far, will launch on January 31, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Freedom Fighters and the final episode, which will take place in Japan, will also be included.
