Access is only guaranteed to those that preorder a digital copy of the game, whether that's the Full Experience, Intro Pack, or Collector's editions. People who preordered physical copies will not be able to play the beta, publisher Square Enix has previously said.

The Hitman beta weighs in at around 4.7 GB on both platforms. Those on PS4 will not need a PlayStation Plus membership to play the Hitman beta, unless you live in Germany.

Hitman's release date on PS4, PC, and Xbox One is March 11. The game was originally slated to launch in late 2015 but was delayed so that developer IO Interactive could add more content.

The game will be split into episodes that are released over the course of the year. The prologue and first mission will be available on March 11, but the other content previously promised for launch--the Italy and Morocco missions--are now coming later. The Italy mission will be released in April, followed by Morocco in May.
