Io-Interactive, creators of the long running Hitman series, announced today that the fourth chapter in their episodic contract assassin game will be released on August 16th, and that it will take place in Bangkok.
The company also offered new details about the new episode, and released a series of screenshots and a video showcasing a fictional music band that will be featured heavily in Agent 47’s next mission.
While Agent 47 is quite the jetsetter, he rarely chooses to travel for pleasure. 47 is most certainly all work and no play. And so it is that he finds himself travelling to Thailand to bask in the natural beauty of exotic gardens, explore the Himmapan luxury hotel and resort’s exquisite interiors; and most importantly, take care of business.
With episode four, we are extremely pleased to be able to deliver a new spin on a fan favourite type of destination. Hotels have been a staple across many a Hitman title. A huge amount of people in the community love learning everything there is to know about the intricacies of each hotel; and we thoroughly enjoy creating these wondrous assassination locations.
The “Club 27” mission transports players to the opulence and splendour of the Himmapan luxury hotel and resort, situated on the Chao Phraya River outside Bangkok. Your targets are rising rock star Jordan Cross, front man of trending indie band The Class, and Cross’ family lawyer, Ken Morgan. Both are currently residing at the luxury hotel as the band finishes its highly-anticipated sophomore album.
When a world famous indie band, untold wealth, and Agent 47 come together; you can be sure that you’re in for an explosively good time. Whether you’re taking creative liberties with musical instruments, exploring brand new opportunities, unlocking new gear, items & weapons; or having a blast with over 65 new challenges: we can’t wait to see how much fun our awesome community has in Thailand.
