Originally announced at E3 2015, Square Enix and IO Interactive are now offering a glimpse of what the actual game looks like with 15 minutes of footage.
The demo opens in Paris, with Agent 47 on the hunt for fashion mogul/IAGO agent, Viktor Novikov. It then shows that players can take their weapon of choice into each stage, ranging from stealthy to not-so-subtle. Just as with the Hitman series as a whole, the objective is to blend in as much as possible before finding the right time to strike.
Io-Interactive and Square Enix present the first playthrough from HITMAN. The video focuses on the core Hitman experience – creative stealth gameplay, disguises, hiding in plain sight and the choice and freedom of approach that is the hallmark of the series.
Featuring the “Showstopper” mission, the playthrough aims to give fans insight into the mechanics of HITMAN while not spoiling the game.
