Hitman developer Square Enix have released a new trailer for Hitman, introducing us to the pretty - albeit fictional - Italian town of Sapienza.

Square Enix has released a new trailer for Hitman, showcasing the game's bright and sunny fictional Italian town of Sapienza. Set to the song "Between Two Points" by The Glitch Mob, the video is meant to showcase the variety and expansiveness of the stealth game's environments.

"From a luxurious mansion to the medieval church situated by the beach and the cramped alleys littered with stores, Sapienza is a dense location full of challenges and packed with opportunities and stories for the enterprising player to unfold," said Square Enix in a press release "And as with all locations within Hitman, dark secrets and engaging stories are everywhere to be found in charming Sapienza."

By dark secrets, presumably they mean that we'll be stabbing and shooting people all the way across the peaceful italian village, which you can see more of in the trailer below, soundtracked by The Glitch Mob's "Between Two Points"

Hitman is doing a confusing thing at launch. It's launching on March 11, 2016 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC but only with its "initial launch content". This will include Paris, Sapienza and Marrakesh as locations in addition to six campaign missions. There will also be a contracts mode similar to Hitman: Absolutions allowing players to make their own assassination missions in the spaces provided.

From there, IO are suggested Hitman will be a growing platform, with new (free) content added regularly. It's an odd way to launch a game - especially a triple AAA release, and it'll be interesting to see if that pans out for them.
