In 2016, Square Enix and IO Interactive announced a new way of playing the once-great Hitman series. Their idea was to release the game episodically with new targets in new locations. Early returns seemed positive, with some negative reactions sprinkled in, according to Steam users. In all honesty, I wasn’t even convinced when it first was announced.
Nevertheless, SE & IO have decided to reach the other gamers, who haven’t yet played it, with the release of the Complete First Season. In preparation for that release, they’ve posted a 101 video teaching the tricks and the trades of the Hitman series.
Visually, Hitman looks stunning. Even the concept of having targets only around for a limited time seems cool. Add all that to the endless possibilities of eliminating targets and there is a lot to like about Hitman: The Complete First Season. Whether or not it can live up to this well-done trailer, remains to be seen when physical copies are released on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC January 31, 2017!
