Hitman episode 3: Marrakesh launches on 31st May

Brand new contracts go live for Agent 47's latest outing

On 31st May, Io-Interactive invites Hitman players to delve deep into Marrakesh with the release of the third episode of the game.

The city of contrasts

Following up on the big fashion show event in Paris and the expansive nature of Sapienza, we knew that Marrakesh had to be something extraordinary. So the team set out to build a location that was both teeming with life and things to do. Marrakesh has been built with a maze of alleys, a range of souks that line the medina walls and a fully fletched shisha café. Moving upwards, players can enjoy the shade on the signature rooftop terraces of Marrakesh.

Just beyond the busy marketplace, you will find an architectural marvel in the shape of the Swedish Consulate building. The very embodiment of minimalistic Scandinavian design, a mix of glass, concrete and wood offering a powerful contrast to the blazing heat just outside its walls.


The mission

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.


Tons of new live content

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.

It looks and sounds so good, Can’t wait!

I wish you’d release the disc already even if we have to download the whole game. Not paying the extortionate PS store prices

Really? How are the prices in any way a form of extortion? Nobody is forcing you to buy the game off psn. Not too mention that you make it seem like its a huge difference in between pricing. I could be wrong but I cant see it costing more than $20 to buy the game in episodes, and if thats the case i would gladly pay an extra $20 to recieve the game early even if its parted out in episodes.


Why would anybody pay 20 bucks for an episode, when I paid 60 and will get all episodes without out having to spend any extra money when you pay 20 bucks for one episode and then end up spending a total of 140 for all 7 episodes that is truly an idiotic move


What time is the release?

Why can I not access episode 3? Downloaded it 3 times already, keeps saying I do not own or have access to the content, even though in the PS-store it says both purchased and installed. Extremely annoying, the same happened with episode 2. Except with episode 2 it suddenly decided to start working. Anyone else still experiencing the same issues? Anyone with a fix?
