The new Hitman game has just been shown off at Square Enix’s E3 2015 press conference.
The new game, simply titled Hitman, is considered a reboot of the franchise but looks set to continue series trends and mechanics, most recently displayed in the critically acclaimed Hitman Absolution.
Developed by IO-Interactive, Hitman takes players to locations around the world in “the most ambitious Hitman game ever.” The game provides a freedom of approach to assassinations, similar to previous Hitman titles; however, some assassination targets only surface once for a limited time. If they are not taken out within that time, they are gone forever. Contracts mode “has evolved,” where players can mark their own targets and share them with friends.
Square Enix also announced that the new Hitman will launch on December 8th 2015 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Check out the new trailer below.
