Hitman is probably one of the most popular games on PC.
And a new installment in the series is coming really soon, Square Enix and IO Interactive have announced.
It is called Hitman. How original? But yes that's the name, and the game will be released for a public beta test, as Hitman Beta. What is the game about?
Hitman takes place in the very beginning of Agent 47's career when he joins the ICA, and trains to become the assassin we have seen in the previous games. These training missions are what makes the HITMAN Prologue episode. 47 meets Diana Burnwood, who handles his contracts and acts as the communication between him and the ICA.
The Prologue introduces the basic gameplay features and mechanics in the game, and two free-form training hits aka test missions, which are replayable.
