Hitman explains its ‘season’ structure, offers exclusive missions to PS4

Beta gets going for PlayStation 4 on Feb. 12, a week later on Windows PC

Hitman will favor the PlayStation 4 with exclusive content when it launches, Io-Interactive said today in an update on plans for the game.

In addition to getting a week with the beta before Windows PC, starting Feb. 12 (next Friday) PS4 owners will also get six bonus missions all to themselves, under the heading "The Sarajevo Six." Hitman launches, or perhaps "premieres" is a better word, on March 11 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Hitman will launch episodically, meaning it will add missions to its ongoing story throughout the year before recapping everything on a retail disc at the end of 2016. Someone can buy the year’s worth of content for $60, or pick up episodes piecemeal. The debut episode is $15, subsequent chapters will be $10.

Io-Interactive says Hitman‘s new structure allows them to explore multiple points of view, centering not only on its iconic protagonist Agent 47, but also his handler, Diana Burnwood, and even his targets.

"The sturcture is inspired by contemporary TV series and will unfold over multiple seasons," Io-Interactive wrote on PlayStation Blog. "To begin with, the overall story and the individual mission stories run in parallel but as the first season progresses, the tracks will merge and become one."

This trailer, released today, sets the tone for Hitman. It doesn’t feature any gameplay but it sketches out the Bond-esque world of action and geopolitical intrigue for which the Hitman franchise has been known for the past 15 years.

The PS4 exclusive missions involve dismantling a paramilitary group known as CICADA. It’s unclear if that group will be the main antagonist of the International Contract Agency (Hitman’s employer) or a side target for PS4 players only.

Howdy. I first started blogging on RAMONE.ca in 2009, with a dedicated focus on men's lifestyle and stories of inebriation. Shortly after, I was listed as a top Canadian blogger, and over the next decade, I've collaborated with hundreds of notable brands.

Then I grew up. As of late, I've graduated to writing about life experiences, well-researched opinions, and hopefully a few things you might find useful.

This is my memory vault.
