The first season, as they’re calling it, of Hitman is coming to an end on October 31st with the release of the final location promised this year. For his final working vacation, Agent 47 will travel to Japan to relax at a resort with a private hospital.
Hitman season finale takes us to Japan
During his stay in Japan you’ll be at Hokkaido, which is a very exclusive resort complete with its own hospital for those individuals who happen to find themselves at the mercy of Agent 47. How convenient. This secluded facility is a fusion of Japanese beauty and cutting-edge technology, featuring its own Zen gardens, organic sushi restaurant and traditional Japanese hot spring. In this mission, Agent 47 must locate two targets in what’s being called a climactic Hitman season finale.
Episodic content is an interesting method of delivering a game though it may actually work out in their favor. Though each mission is relatively short if taken direction, those missions can still last hours, if not days, while you figure out every little detail. Despite the voice acting, which lacks a bit, it’s a surprisingly fun and challenging game to play. And don’t think that they’re done here. Of the episodic content, and the future (which is bright) the studio head, Hannes Seifert said the following:
“It was a brave decision to go fully digital episodic with Hitman, fundamentally changing how we make the game, and for us it has been a major success,” said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head, Io-Interactive. “I want to say a big thank you to all the players for making this possible! Together we’ve built and run the biggest and most replayable locations of any Hitman game and added new live content every single week since launch. And although we’re now completing season one, this is only the beginning for our ever expanding World of Assassination.”
If you don’t already own the full season you can grab it now, and it’ll soon have all the content that they’ve thus far promised.
