Play A Free Hitman Level For A Limited Time On Xbox One, PS4, And PC
Try before you buy.
Perhaps you missed out on the 2016 game Hitman. Maybe you didn't care for its episodic release schedule, or maybe you were waiting for the full game to come out the following year and let it slip by without playing it. Whatever the case, between now and July 31, you can play the game's third episode, Marrakesh, for free on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The free version is called Hitman - Summer Pack, and you can find links to it in the various digital stores below.
Each episode of Hitman is a new self-contained level that acts as a sandbox in which your job is to commit creative assassinations. The third episode brings players to Marrakesh, Morocco, where they can play through "The Gilded Gage" campaign mission, complete eight Escalation Contracts, earn 20 levels of location mastery (including six weapon/gear unlocks), and complete more than 90 challenges. Any progress you make will carry through if you purchase the full game, but you will lose access to Episode 3 once July 31 rolls around.
According to an IO Interactive blog post, "Offering two targets, the 'Gilded Cage' mission challenges players to eliminate private banker Claus Strandberg, held up inside the secure Swedish Consulate, and army General Reza Zaydan, protected by his elite squad of soldiers at a temporary headquarters in the heart of the city. Both targets will be challenging to reach and both will, of course, have some entertaining special moments attached to them that will allow players to dole out some poetic justice."
Also included in the Summer Pack is the ICA Facility location, a training ground that essentially acts as a tutorial for the game. It includes a good deal of content on its own, with two story missions, two Escalation Contracts, and over 40 challenges.
From GameSpot's Hitman review: "This 2016 take on Hitman is a brilliant game. Expansive level design and nearly unlimited replay value courtesy of so many routes to your assassinations (and so many methods with which to carry them out) make the experience almost completely different each and every time you play."
