Agent 47 needs some extra time to prepare his next infiltration mission. But while Hitman isn't set to release until March, Shacknews recently ventured out to learn a little more about what to expect.
IO Interactive's Sven Liebold discusses Hitman's Paris mission in detail, noting that it's one of the game's larger levels. He also emphasizes the ability to re-visit levels and plan out new and more elaborate assassination methods. He explains that players will be able to learn new details from NPCs that they might not have heard in previous playthroughs, opening new doors for different assassinations. Liebold even goes into some details on one of the game's more creative hits.
"Let's just say, especially in this Paris level, after the fashion show there's supposed to be a big firework going off," Liebold explains to Shacknews Showcase's Andrew Zucosky. "Let's just say you find a technician who actually has the remote for this firework and let's just say there's a way to trigger this earlier. Everyone in the crowd will go outside to watch the fireworks and let's just say the host will not be very happy about this. This gives you a hint as to how you can take him out there."
