Hitman's next episode goes to Marrakesh

Two targets will be waiting for personalized justice.


First it was Paris, then Sapienza. Now Hitman is sending Agent 47 to Marrakesh on May 31 for a mixture of voyeurism and infiltration (their words, not mine).

The mission is the third DLC episode for the assassination game from Io Interactive, and community manager Travis Barbour said the developer has plenty of content planned for the city, which includes a Swedish consulate and a bustling marketplace. The "Gilded Cage" mission will offer two targets: Private banker Claus Strandberg, holed up inside the consulate, and heavily guarded army General Reza Zaydan, located at a temporary HQ in the heart of the city. "Both will of course have some entertaining special moments attached to them that will allow players to dole out some poetic justice," he said.

"The team set out to build a location that was both teeming with life and with things to do," Barbour said, explaining the mission locale. "Marrakesh has been built with a maze of alleys, a range of souks that line the medina walls, and a fully fletched shisha café. Moving upwards, players can enjoy the shade on the signature rooftop terraces of Marrakesh."

As with the previous episodes, Marrakesh will get its own Contracts mode, Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts, which will be detailed later.
