Hitman Marrakesh (3)

Good news for anyone who happens to enjoy dressing up as a dapper bald man and strangling people: Hitman returns with a third episode of assassination hijinks on Tuesday May 31. The location this time? Marrakesh, a new locale that features tighter avenues for stealth kills in comparison to the more open spaces of Sapienza and Paris.

Here’s the flavour text from the PS Blog, and some new screenshots:

Hitman Marrakesh (2)

Hitman Marrakesh (1)

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.

With Marrakesh also comes a lot more live content for players to engage with and the busy markets and locked down consulate will provide us with great settings for our live features. Episode 3 has been designed to keep players busy with a wide range of challenges and opportunities and along with an entirely new setting for Contracts mode, Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts, we are dying to see what you come up with.

Naturally, I’ll be streaming my attempts to murder my way to victory. Because the last time I did this, it went very well and there were no cock-ups at all. Nope!
