A Summer Bonus Episode will release for Hitman on July 19, IO-Interactive and Square Enix have announced.
The Summer Bonus Episode will feature two ICA missions, and are not part of the story arc of Hitman.
When the town of Sapienza is taken over by a film crew shooting a new sci-fi blockbuster. Agent 47 must aim to retire one of the cast members during a climactic scene being staged late at night in the town square.
A House Built on Sand
Set at the frenetic night markets in Marrakesh, a mole for a major construction company is about to sell secrets to their largest rivals. Agent 47 is tasked with making sure the leak stops there.
"We've created not one, but two missions for the Summer Bonus Episode and players will revisit the hugely popular Sapienza and Marrakesh locations with a completely different feel," said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive. "It allows us to show what we can do with Hitman as a live game - we even introduced a crazy giant killer robot, but it's also the perfect midway point in the Hitman season before the final three locations."
It's not clear which existing episodes will be needed to access the new content.
The final three Hitman Episodes - Thailand, the United States and Japan – will arrive later in 2016.
