COPENHAGEN, July 19, 2016 – HITMAN’s Summer Bonus Episode is live today.
The Summer Bonus Episode consists of two separate ICA missions which catalogue Agent 47’s first trips to both Sapienza and Marrakesh. This Episode is not part of the story arc of HITMAN, being previous ICA missions they are set apart from the main story.
In Sapienza, ‘The Icon’, sees the town taken over by a film crew shooting a new sci-fi blockbuster complete with a 100ft mechanical killer robot in the middle of the town square – what sort of accidents lie in wait with a whole film set, complete with pyrotechnics, at your disposal..?
And in ‘A House Built on Sand’ players will travel to the noisy and busy night markets of Marrakesh where Agent 47 must stop a billion dollar deal taking place.
The Summer Bonus Episode presents players with a range of new in-game Challenges and Opportunities that will keep them busy along with a new type of setting for Escalation Contracts and Elusive Targets.
The Summer Bonus Episode is available for players who own the Full Experience or own the combination of Intro Pack + Upgrade Pack, at no additional cost and will be available for download today. For all other players, the Summer Bonus Episode will be available for individual purchase later in the Season, packaged together with a third bonus mission for one price. At that time, Full Experience and Upgrade Pack owners will also get access to the third bonus mission at no additional cost.
