Hitman Episode 2 Trailer Takes Players to Sunny Sapienza


The Hitman is perhaps the most controversial video game character to date, as he’s a cold-blooded killer who does what he does for financial reward, and nothing else. Agent 47 travels the world carrying out contracts for an organization known as the ICA (International Contracts Agency), visiting all sorts of exotic locations and hunting down nefarious characters.

And while Agent 47 is no saint, neither are his targets, including Silvio Caruso (a bioengineer who’s working on deadly a virus) who Agent 47 will attempt to put down in the second episode of the new Hitman game, which was released on April 26.

This episode is set in the sunny coastal town of Sapienza (see trailer below), which looks like an ideal tourist destination given the beautiful weather, golf courses and nice cafés, even if a cold-blooded assassin in a suit is skulking about…

Like the game’s first episode, which featured a large mission set in Paris, this Sapienza episode will offer players many options for carrying out the mission, using a variety of weapons like a silenced rifle and different strategies to deal with the Hitman’s target. As usual Agent 47 will be able to disguise himself putting on different attires (including a priest robe) to approach the hapless scientist whom he has to deal with in Sapienza…

This Hitman game is the first that developer Io-Interactive split into episodes that will be released in the coming months, with the next episode being set in Northern Africa (Marrakesh) and the final one in the US, which will be released later this year.

Note: Episode 2 of the Hitman game was released on April 26, 2016. Available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
