Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh will arrive on May 31st for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This episode takes Agent 47 to the famous Moroccan city, promising an even bigger and better adventure than the previous two episodes. “Following up on the big fashion show event in Paris and the expansive nature of Sapienza, we knew that Marrakesh had to be something extraordinary, said Travis Barbour, Io-Interactive’s Community Manager.
“So the team set out to build a location that was both teeming with life and with things to do. Marrakesh has been built with a maze of alleys, a range of souks that line the medina walls, and a fully fletched shisha café. Moving upwards, players can enjoy the shade on the signature rooftop terraces of Marrakesh.”
As far as what players will actually be doing in this vibrant city, there is, of course, another target to take out. Actually there are two targets for Agent 47 to worry about, with the “Gilded Cage” mission tasking players with eliminating “private banker Claus Strandberg, holed up inside the secure Swedish Consulate, and army General Reza Zaydan, protected by his elite squad of soldiers at a temporary headquarters in the heart of the city.”
Live features will also be making a return, with the city of Marrakesh providing a lot of fertile ground for Io to work with. Expect a few Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts to arrive soon after launch.
