Hitman releases on March 11 with three locations; additional DLC planned through June

Square Enix has announced Hitman's new release date as well as its plans on how the game will be released.


Hitman is now scheduled to release on March 11, 2016.

On March 11, a total of six campaign missions will be available to complete and three sandbox locations: Paris, Sapienza, and Marrakesh. The game will feature 40 signature kills, a Contracts mode that includes 800 targets to dispose of, and weekly live hints and events.

Additional content is expected to be released in the following months as players will be given access to Thailand in April, USA in May, and Japan in June. These pieces of additional content will include new campaign missions, new signature kills, new Contracts mode targets, and new weekly live hits and events.

Square Enix is offering three separate ways to purchase Hitman. The Intro Pack includes the initial March 11 content for $34.99 with the Upgrade Pack including the additional content for $29.99. The Full Experience includes all content that’s been announced and will retail for $59.99, which also guarantees access to Hitman’s beta.

Hitman was recently delayed to March 2016 after IO Interactive revealed it needed more time to produce the Hitman experience it wanted to release.

To help make sense of it all, Square Enix provided the following infographic to make its scheduling a bit easier to understand.
