Io Interactive and Square Enix announced today that Episode 5 of Hitman, which takes place in Colorado, will be releasing on September 27.
In this episode, which is the penultimate one of the game’s first season, the player must take on the “Freedom Fighters” mission at a Colorado farm-compound-turned militia training camp. Agent 47 must take out four targets: Sean Rose, Maya Parvati, Ezra Berg, and Penelope Graves.
Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io Interactive, had the following to say about the upcoming episode:
“This is one of the toughest episodes yet. Not only do you have four targets, but from the moment you set foot in Colorado you’re on enemy ground. ‘Freedom Fighters‘ is a key episode, which will add serious momentum to the story and set up an intriguing season finale for players.”
You can take a look at some screenshots of the new episode below. Hitman is currently available digitally on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and the first season will be available at retail next January.
