Hitman’s next episode out Tuesday, new trailer features a madman yammering about bioweapons


It’s less than a week until we can take Agent 47 on a seaside murder adventure in Sapienza, so a new trailer has been released in celebration. Let’s hope our slap-headed shooter remembered to pack sun lotion. 

Hitman’s upcoming coastal assassination would likely be at home in our list of PC sandbox games.

“The beautiful, sun-drenched coastal town of Sapienza is full of new challenges and packed with opportunities for the creative assassin to explore,” says the official blurb. “Your main target is Silvio Caruso, a brilliant bioengineer reportedly working on a DNA-Specific virus able to infect anyone anywhere in the world.”

In this one you’ll be finding and infiltrating the lab of a genocidal scientist, then. So far both of the hits have been on despicable people who are impossible to empathise with. I hope a future episode brings something as morally grey as killing the tragicJoseph Clarence in Death of a Showman, the opening mission of Hitman: Blood Money.

Either way, if Sapineza is half as good as Paris it’ll be excellent. Have a watch of the new trailer for Hitman’s second episode below:
