Hitman gets a new target

Hitman gets a new target

Tomorrow's launch of Episode 2: Sapienza also comes with the second contract from The Sarajevo Six. PS4 Hitman players will be able to take care of Gary Lunn, also known as The Enforcer. These side-story contracts revolve around former members of CICADA, a paramilitary unit.

looks like the best hitman so far.
i seriously finished hitman multiple times but this game isnt even on my rader .
I'm pretty sure its because the way its getting released, in piece meal form .
just feels like you are paying for a demo every couple of months
i dont like it at all.
who on earth plays a game in piece form ???
strange decision from io interactive

tbh, it's release method has grown on me. it's online-only functionality hasn't. but this one-location-per-month system fits this franchise really well. more-so then just chopping up a story into 5 pieces anyway (telltale games, life is strange etc)

the issue comes in whether they can maintain that release schedule and the level of quality and detail going into these locations...but in terms of getting a location a month, and then it's built upon via escalation missions (which are the single greatest thing to be added to hitman in years) challenges, as well as special additional elusive targets...not to mention contracts mode. there is more than enough there to keep you playing that one location for that entire month. plus is keeps you playing a game potentially all year, rather then completing the bare minimum and shelving it.

i just wish it wasn't so online focused. there really is no justifiable reason agent 47's signature silenced silver baller, sniper rifle, sedative poison and starting locations are stuck behind a server wall...a not very stable server wall at that.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth imagine a board meeting at konami, downtown tokyo. "could you get a focus group together and find out where we should take our franchies from here?". Producer leaves for the nearest pachinko parlor. (4 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Activision isn't too much better, with the exception of Blizzard games. Ubisoft is maybe adapting better. (13 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think publishers can miss the plot a bit too. I think EA is stuck between chasing trends and being stuck in sorta old ways. They need to figure out this market. (14 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it would work on consoles too. Elite Dangerous with it's advanced controls were still able to work reasonably well on a gamepad. Giving the game a dynamic campaign built around story elements. (15 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think giving one publisher exclusive rights to the license was probably a mistake. Sorta putting all your eggs in one basket. (15 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth a flight sim background (Lawrence Holland). But i can't imagine disney/ea being interested in doing a game like that (18 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Another kind of SW game i'd love to play is a space-sim kind of game. sorta like a modern take on Tie-Fighter (or the X-Wing series in general). Those were games developed by a team that came from.. (20 minutes ago)
