Launching on December 8 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Hitman will see players perform contract hits on powerful, high-profile targets in exotic locations around the world in this creative stealth-action, sandbox game.

“This is a true Hitman fantasy, a highly challenging, thinking person’s game where creativity is rewarded,” said Christian Elverdam, creative director, at IO Interactive in the press release.

“You have the power and intelligence of Agent 47™ at your fingertips and it is your choice whether to use brute force or orchestrate a genuine masterpiece of assassination.”

Gameplay focuses on taking out targets in huge and intricate sandbox levels with complete freedom of approach. The game is a live, expanding and evolving world of assassination in continuous development. New missions will be released as soon as they are ready, and $60 and not a dollar more grants full access to the entire experience.

The initial storyline for Hitman will conclude in 2016 and the next story will follow.
