Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh Launches on May 31st

Io-Interactive today announced that Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh will launch on May 31st.

The mission, titled ‘A Gilded Cage’, enlists Agent 47 to take out two targets, private investment banker Claus Strandberg and Army General Reza Zaydan.

In a city teaming with life on the brink of a full-scale riot, these are the moments before a coup d’état, where the visible military presence exacerbates a situation where tensions are running high.

Bustling Berber markets, alleyways crammed with stalls and shops, a clinical Swedish consulate and shaded rooftop terraces are just some of the areas that players can explore in Marrakesh.

Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh will present players with a range of new in-game Challenges and Opportunities that will keep them busy along with an entirely new setting for Escalation Contracts and Elusive Targets.

Episode 3: Marrakesh is free as part of the Full Experience Pack. Owners of the Intro Pack can choose either the Upgrade Pack for $50, which will then include all of this year’s content as it’s released including live and bonus content – or choose to purchase the location individually for $10 (or local equivalent).
