The latest entry in the Hitman video game series is changing things up a bit. Instead of releasing the entire game at once they’re going episodic this time around, releasing multiple parts of the game over the course of the year. They’ll also be releasing special contracts and challenges to take on each week.
The hope is that, in doing this, they can keep fans of the series busy and entertained for many months instead of them getting it and beating it in a matter of days or weeks and moving on to something else.
The start of this assassination journey arrives on March 11th when the first of these episodes will be released. In celebration of its arrival, a season premiere trailer has been released, which includes plenty of peeks and praise. You can check it out below.
