Hitman: Episode 4 is out now. This opening mission brief sets the scene.
Hitman: Episode 4 takes us to sunny Bangkok, where we can infiltrate a fancy-pants hotel and do a murder. The good kind, not the bad kind. Here’s the brief:
“Welcome to Bangkok. The “Club 27” mission delivers Hitman players an opulent and richly detailed luxury hotel to explore, from the exquisite interior suites to its tropical gardens and exotic pavilions. With Rock ‘n’ Roll targets, all-new opportunities and disguises, plus over 75 different challenges unlocking new gear, weapons, and items Episode 4: Bangkok is not to be missed.”
Despite a lot of grumbling over episodic launch and Square Enix’s dithering, Hitman is going great guns. IO Interactive really seems to have nailed the episodic format, which perfectly suits a game like Hitman – it’s so much more rewarding to thoroughly explore each sandbox rather than just rush from mission to mission as in the full release. It’s super interesting to see it doing well.
