'Hitman' Takes To The Streets Of Marrakesh On May 31

Next week, IO Interactive will launch the third episode of Hitman, which takes players to the crowded streets of Marrakesh. In this level, you’ll have to take out two targets: the private banker Claus Strandberg, and the army general Reza Zaydan.

Instead of a level focused on a mansion or villa, the Marrakesh stage includes portions of the city, such as the large shopping district, the shisha cafe or the many alleys protruding from the district. However, you can find alternate routes that make it easier for you to spot the target, such as walking on the rooftop terraces.

One structure that stands out in this crowded location is the Swedish consulate, which houses Strandberg, one of your targets. Security is tight because of the protestors outside, so you’ll have to find a way to sneak in undetected. As for General Zaydan, he’s holed up in a separate location in the city. However, he’s constantly surrounded by his elite guards. It sounds like you’ll need to disguise yourself if you want to get in close for the kill.

As always, there are more things to do in the episode than just the main mission. You can take on multiple objectives and challenges in the level, as well. IO Interactive will also continue to add its so-called “Live Content,” such as Escalation Contracts and the newly-introduced Elusive Contracts.

In keeping with its launch plans, IO Interactive will release the next level for Hitmanat some point next month. Additional level include locations in Thailand, the U.S. and Japan.
