In the latest and final part of the video series “Talking Hitman,” “Io-Interactive level designers Jacob Mikkelsen and Marta La Mendola sit down to talk about how they handle the creation of the biggest creative hit sandboxes in HITMAN history.”
Both of them talk about how the scale of levels and the difference between Absolution and the new Hitman. They explain that building levels for the new game wasn’t easy. There are so many points of entries and the map accommodates many methods of Assassination.
