Square Enix and IO Interactive officially release a teaser trailer for the launch of Hitman‘s Season Finale, which is set on the Japanese island of Hokkaido.
Following Square Enix’s unveiling of the release date and location for Hitman‘s season finale, the game’s publisher and its developer IO Interactive have now put out a teaser trailer giving fans of the stealth-action title a glimpse into the mission, which has become available today. Apparently, Agent 47 is going to wrap the first season of the game up by traveling to Hokkaido, Japan to eliminate two separate targets at an extremely exclusive hospital on the island.
As seen in the Hitman teaser trailer below, Agent 47 is going to engage in some versatile stealth and action scenarios in a secluded, mountainous region in Hokkaido, with the protagonist infiltrating the grounds of a hospital facility that houses a “fusion of Japanese beauty and cutting-edge technology, featuring its own Zen gardens, organic sushi restaurant, and traditional Japanese hot spring,” as described by Square Enix. The mission is called “Situs Inversus” and the publisher touts it as “the culmination of everything players will have learnt in terms of both gameplay and story.”
In addition to today’s release of Hitman‘s Hokkaido mission and its teaser trailer, IO Interactive and Square Enix have also put out an update that provides fixes to the overall game. Fans interested in a complete rundown of what the Situs Inversus season finale and patch notes contain can find them in full over on the next page.
Since all of the content for Hitman‘s first season is currently available, IO Interactive and Square Enix have decided to give fans of the stealth-action title a glimpse at the road map for what’s ahead. In order to do so, the companies have released a full schedule for the month of November. The details can be found in the image below.
Although the Hokkaido episode marks the end of Hitman‘s initial season, according to developer IO Interactive, fans have plenty to look forward to, as there are going to be three seasons in total for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. As a matter of fact, Hitman‘s lead writer Michael Vogt has previously stated that the story is “just getting started” when the first season ends.
For those who have been waiting to play all of the missions released so far for Hitman without having to download them serially, the complete first season is set to be released on disc in January. The physical version of Hitman will be priced at $60, and should include every update and piece of content from Season 1, as well as some special bonuses. Once it releases, it will be interesting to see if how the cumulative sales of Hitman‘s approach to episodic gaming will stack up against the numbers of the game’s disc version.
Hitman‘s Season One is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
