Chella takes a look at the hottest games for autumn 2018, as the big releases come thick and fast towards the end of the year.
Now that the episodic HITMAN game is available on a single disk, we thought we would re-release the review we did of the entire series. The final episode concluded with an epic final level in Hokkaido, Japan that seemed like something out of a James Bond movie. But now gamers can pick up all six of them in one swoop. Should they?
The penultimate episode in HITMAN Season One, the mission “Freedom Fighters” is not one to be taken lightly. Agent 47 must infiltrate a Colorado farm compound that has been converted into a private militia training camp. Players are presented with an intense infiltration mission to locate and take out four targets. “This is the point where the events of the previous episodes will really start to make sense. In Episode 5, the story steps into the foreground and provides a much clearer picture of what has been unfolding and where the story is heading”, said Michael Vogt, lead writer of … Continue reading New HITMAN Mission, Freedom Fighters in Colorado, Now Available
The HITMAN companion app is now available to download for iOS and Android phones and will ensure players can keep up-to-date with all the live HITMAN content on the go. In addition to the episode releases, new content in the form of Elusive Targets, Escalation Contracts and Featured Contracts, have been released every week since the game launched in March 2016 – all details will be updated in the HITMAN companion app. With Elusive Targets, players will be able to use the app whilst playing to keep their latest target’s image visible as they hunt for their target in game. … Continue reading HITMAN Launches Companion App, Tough Elusive Target
While the first episode of the new episodic HITMAN was a little bit of a mixed bag, the second one, set it Sapienza, Italy, is practically a masterpiece, and quite a big hit. Plus, it can be purchased as a standalone game or as a DLC for the main title.
Io-Interactive is delighted to announce the launch of HITMAN Episode 2: Sapienza today. The mission titled; World of Tomorrow enlists Agent 47 to target Silvio Caruso, a brilliant but troubled bioengineer employed by the Ether Biotech Corporation who is reportedly working on a DNA-Specific virus able to infect anyone anywhere in the world. 47 must eliminate Caruso and his lab head Francesca De Santis as well as destroy the yet unfinished virus prototype. “Sapienza is a strong contrast to the Paris fashion show, it’s the nearest thing to a small town released in a Hitman game which we haven’t done before on this … Continue reading HITMAN Episode 2: Sapienza Launches
Released for the first time in episodic format, Agent 47 returns in HITMAN, a single player assassination game with strong online support. New levels will be available monthly for about $10 each, but to kick things off, we head to the Paris fashion show for some really big hits.
Hitman starts with the Prologue and a Paris location on March 11, followed by the next location, set in Italy releasing in April and then Morocco releasing in May. From there Hitman will deliver regular monthly content updates, including three additional locations; Thailand, the United States and the season conclusion in Japan later in 2016.
Movies based on videogames have a checkered history, but Hitman Agent 47, the second attempt at a Hitman-based movie, really tries to pay homage to the game even as it presents a somewhat typical Hollywood action flick.
Chella was in two minds whether to delve into the new Hitman, but now that it’s to be an episodic launch she thinks it makes sense for gamers. They can jump in for $15 and give it a punt, getting a AAA experience for the price of an indie.
