Pre-loading for the Hitman PC Beta has started tonight. This is in preparation for the Beta weekend that will start tomorrow.
Io-Interactive have revealed the start times for the release in both Europe and North America and when the Beta will end:
In Europe it is scheduled to start 17:00 CET on Friday February 19, and will end 17:00 CET Monday February 22.
In North America the PC beta is scheduled to start 8:00 PST Friday February 19 and end 8:00 PST Monday, February 22.
The Hitman PC Beta will include everything we saw in the Xbox One version:
“Labeled “The Prologue”, the Beta takes place twenty years before the Paris Showstopper mission. Set in a secret ICA training facility, the Prologue features a pivotal moment in Agent 47’s life – his introduction to the ICA and very first meeting with his future handler Diana Burnwood. The Prologue features two free-form training hits, which will introduce players to the features and mechanics of the upcoming HITMAN game. The Prologue will also be available as part of the first episode of HITMAN releasing March 11th, 2016.”
The way to guarantee access will be to pre-order the game. This access is given both to the Intro Pack and Full Experience versions of the game.
After the Beta, the next time we’ll get to play the game will be March 11 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
