Square Enix and IO Interactive have announced Hitman: Episode 5: Colorado will launch on September 27, 2016.
As the name of the episode suggests, Agent 47 will be traveling to Colorado for the second-to-last episode in Hitman’s first season in an attempt to complete the “Freedom Fighters” mission. Agent 47 needs to infiltrate a farm compound in the heart of the United States’ great midwest as it’s been converted into a private militia training camp.
Players will need to locate, and then take out four separate targets during this mission: Sean Rose, Maya Parvati, Ezra Berg and Penelope Graves. All four targets are very different people, although they’re all equally as dangerous. Each target has their own specialist skillset, which range from environmental terrorism to chemical interrogation, making this the toughest assignment Agent 47 has taken on yet.
“This is one of the toughest episodes yet. Not only do you have four targets, but from the moment you set foot in Colorado you’re on enemy ground,” said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive. "'Freedom Fighters' is a key episode, which will add serious momentum to the story and set up an intriguing season finale for players.”
The fifth episode will feature 70 different challenges that will unlock brand-new gear, weapons, and items. Completing Episode 5: Colorado will also reward players with notable story revelations as the first season of Hitman will soon come to an end.
