Square Enix revealed the latest Hitman game at Sony’s press conference, and it will lead with a digital release that will, in their words, “grow, deepen, and evolve” as time goes on , and is titled simply as “Hitman” .
Check out the first trailer below:
Developed by IO-Interactive, Hitman will take players to locations around the world in “the most ambitious Hitman game ever.” A short trailer showed Agent 47 running through a forest and taking out a target with a sniper rifle.
We are building an expanding and evolving world of assassination. The experience will begin on December 8th and we will release new locations, missions and hits over time at regular intervals through 2016, which means we’ll all be able to share in the excitement of a new content drop at the same time.
Rather than unboxing a game, playing it and then that’s sort of it, we want to deliver a true community experience – creating an ongoing and evolving game which plays out with a finale that brings the story arc together. Our primary goal is to keep Hitman players fully engaged, so between bigger drops we will be creating one-off live events and live targets to keep you immersed in the experience.
Imagine a target appearing for every player in the world, for a limited time only… let’s say 48 hours. Where your one shot counts. And when that target is gone, it is gone forever. A shared experience where we imagine the Hitman community will come together every time a new mission or new location appears. For $60 you’ll get full access to all of this content – everything we release as part of this story.
Another big part of this new approach is that we will develop the game with you, the players, and adjust gameplay and create live content and events based on player activity and feedback – so the game will deepen and evolve as time progresses. The experience begins on December 8th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and will reach well into 2016.
Hitman will have a PS4 exclusive beta for customers who pre-order. PlayStation players will also have six unique contracts within the first year after launch.
“Hitman” will be available December 8, 2015 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
