Agent 47 is poised for his next-gen gaming close-up, as Square Enix revealed details of the new Hitman game that’s currently in development for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. Some interesting facts were seen in an open letter from developer IO Interactive stating the following:
“A globetrotting Agent 47 at the prime of his career – the apex predator stalking his prey across the world, with the support of his long-term handler Diana Burnwood and the whole of the ICA.
The game concentrates on the core Hitman fantasy of using a wide range of tools to take out a diverse group of targets across expansive, exotic locations around the world,” it continues. “We’re packing in an extreme level of detail on the largest levels we have ever built for a Hitman game.
We’ve adopted an open, non-linear level design approach to the game, ensuring the game will play out across huge, checkpoint-free, sandbox levels. Our aim is to create living, breathing and believable levels which will allow gamers to play around with the AI to create those unique moments every fan of the Hitman franchise loves.”
As seen in the letter, fans can rest assure that Contract mode will be returning, which was such a big hit in Hitman: Absolution. No release date has been issued as of yet.
