Hitman's third episode, Marrakesh, comes May 31

Hitman's third episode, Marrakesh, is launching next Tuesday, May 31. You'll be arriving in the capital of Morocco to take out a private banker and an army general as the city reaches boiling point and riots erupt.
IO promises that Marrakesh is 'a maze of alleys, a range of souks that line the medina walls and a fully fledged shisha cafe'. Hitman's episodes have been going from strength to strength with Sapienza already showing a sleepy Italian town. Marrakesh is planning to have more buzz to it, a bit more life for you to try to plan around.
'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.'
Last week, I spent an hour trying to impale a private security guard with a stalactite, so I'm all for some poetic murder. Also on the books for Agent 47 is the Elusive Target, coming this weekend and due to take place in Sapienza.
Fancy buying it? You can pick up the episode for £7.99, but it also requires the Intro pack if you want to play. If you've got Hitman: The Full Experience, you will be able to pick this up for free, along with the four other episodes due to release before 2016 is over.
