The Hitman beta is gearing up for this weekend, and it's been revealed that it will require a constant internet connection. However, Square Enix has confirmed that this won't be the case for the full game releasing in March.

The Hitman publisher confirmed to VideoGamer that players will be able to play the full game offline after downloading it.

"Yes, you can play the full game offline after you have downloaded an episode," Square Enix clarified. "But there are live elements which you will need to access online."

The beta is coming to PS4 this Friday, February 12. The PC will be getting it February 19. Xbox One owners will have to wait until the full game's release to get their hands on it.

Hitman launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 11.
