Io-Interactive‘s first act as an independent developer is one of kindness, as they’ve released HITMAN‘s first location for free, starting today. The studio has also removed the much maligned Denuvo anti tamper solution.
I’m proud to announce that our first hello as an independent studio is to invite all gamers to play the beginning of HITMAN for free. There is a lot of love out there for HITMAN and with this offering we hope that many more will fall in love with the game. We believe that this is Hitman at its best. So jump in and give a try. – Hakan Abrak, CEO Io-Interactive.
Players who download this free location will be able to play two story missions, two Escalation Contracts, more than forty challenges, seventeen achievements and thousands of player created missions for the Contracts Mode. Additionally, users who decide to upgrade to the full game will be able to keep all their progress.
