Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh Releases on May 31

After the first two episodes, IO Interactive is preparing to bring you the Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh, set in the a world similar to Morocco – Marrakesh is basically the Arabic name of Morocco.

The mission is expected to bring you two targets namely Claus Strandberg in the Gilded Cage mission and General Reza Zaydan. Needless to say, the setting of Morocco is going to add a lot of regional flavor to the whole thing.

As with any Hitman level, Marrakesh promises players the lure of voyeurism and the thrill of infiltration and it’s something we’ve been working hard on getting just right. Offering two targets, the “Gilded Cage” mission challenges players to eliminate private banker Claus Strandberg, holed up inside the secure Swedish Consulate, and army General Reza Zaydan, protected by his elite squad of soldiers at a temporary headquarters in the heart of the city.

Both targets will be challenging to reach and both will of course have some entertaining special moments attached to them that will allow players to dole out some poetic justice.

Needless to say, there is also going to be some live content in Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh. Since the episode takes you to the Swedish consulate in the region, there is going to be a lot of live content in there as well as on the busy markets.

The developers are promising “a wide range of challenges and opportunities.” Last but not the least, Hitman Episode 3: Marrakesh also brings to the table a whole new setting of Contracts mode, Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts.

Are you still playing the game? If you are, will you test your assassination skills in Episode 3?
