Hello, PlayStation fans! Details about the Hitman beta are here! We were very happy to share the Hitman Beta trailer for the first time at PlayStation Experience 2015!
The all-important start date for the beta is February 12th 2016. That’s when anyone who has pre-ordered the game on PS4 will get guaranteed access.
As you saw in the trailer, the Hitman beta is set twenty years in the past at a top secret ICA recruitment and training facility. This makes it an extremely unique mission because it revolves around how Agent 47 was recruited into the ICA and shows the first time that 47 meets his long-time handler, Diana Burnwood. This will be a moment of huge interest to fans of the series and the perfect starting point for newcomers to the game.
We’ve also got some extra news, specifically for our PS4 players. Hitman will feature six PS4 exclusive contracts that we’ve called “The Sarajevo Six.” These are self-contained contracts that see Agent 47 travel the world in pursuit of six former members of a paramilitary unit called CICADA. Each target was a private soldier guilty of committing brutal war crimes. Many years later, fate is finally catching up with them.
These six contracts will see Agent 47 visit each of the locations in Hitman — from France to Italy, Morocco to Thailand, and the United States to Japan. The first three contracts will be available when the game launches on March 11th 2016 with the rest becoming available as new locations are released during 2016.
The beta will truly be the first step into the world of assassination — and we can’t wait to welcome you all!
