When Agent 47 travels to a beautiful resort he doesn’t spill cocktails, he spills blood.
A new trailer revealed by developers at IO Interactive showcase Hitman in the fictional Italian resort of Sapienza. It’s gorgeous to say the least, with the opportunity for Agent 47 to walk along sandy beaches and potentially enjoy – or cut short – a spot of golf. There’s some notable highlights including a wonderfully created church, town square and ruins of a fort that reside in the enormous environment. Towards the end of the trailer we witness Agent 47 partaking in many classic assassination attempts that we’ve come to know and love.
It really does seem as if we’re going to be spoilt rotten. The environments look like a huge step up from previous entries in the franchise: both in terms of aesthetics, but also in terms of more cleverly constructed ways to assassinate your targets.
Hitman releases 11 March 2016 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Pre-order your copy now.
