IO Interactive has announced that the fifth Hitman episode, titled "Freedom Fighters", will release on the 27th of September on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Episode 5 will take Agent 47 to Colorado, USA, where he is tasked with taking down four targets: Sean Rose, Maya Parvati, Ezra Berg and Penelope Graves. All four are very dangerous people with their own specialist skill-sets ranging from environmental terrorism to chemical interrogation. This episode will also include all-new opportunities and disguises, plus 70 challenges that will unlock brand new gear, weapons and items for 47 to use in all existing locations.
"This is one of the toughest episodes yet. Not only do you have four targets, but from the moment you set foot in Colorado you're on enemy ground. 'Freedom Fighters' is a key episode, which will add serious momentum to the story and set up an intriguing season finale for players," said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive.
Hitman's final episode, which will take players to Japan, is set to release later this year.
