Looks like Agent 47 will be making his way onto tablets and smartphones in the form of turn-based strategy game Hitman GO. Square Enix Montreal has revealed that the game will be demonstrated at PAX East this week, prior to its April 17 release on iOS devices.
The game features rendered diorama-style set pieces on a grid. Players will able to access disguises, distractions, sniper rifles, as well as Agent 47's Silverballers as they navigate through the fixed-size boards to take out targets or infiltrate guarded locations.
An Android version is expected to launch "shortly after". All versions of the game will be priced at $4.99 / £2.99 / €4.49 at launch and include 68 unlockable levels.
In addition to Hitman GO, Square Enix Montreal recently teased that it will soon announce another new project that "fits perfectly within the Hitman universe." Square Enix Montreal is dedicated entirely to mobile Hitman projects, while IO Interactive is currently working on a new AAA Hitman title, which features sandbox levels and has no checkpoints.
