Io Interactive and Square Enix have announced that Hitman episode 3: Marrakesh will release on the 31st of May on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

"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," said IO Interactive.

"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."

"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."

Marrakesh 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.

The third episode will be available for $9.99/€9.99/£7.99. Players that purchased the full package will be able to download the episode for free.
