by Connor Trinske on Feb 15, 2016 at 12:01 PM

The closed beta for the new Hitman game took place over the weekend, and despite the confusing price model, it's shaping up to be an interesting combination of classic Hitman sensibilities and the improved gameplay of more recent titles.

Join Andrew Reiner, Jeff Marchiafava, and intern Connor Trinske as they stalk through the beta's two available missions using what just might be the most unconventional and grossest murder weapon known to man. The crew also tries to make sense of the game's ever-changing release model, and discuss what it means for longtime fans of the series. Can Agent 47 survive the crew's shenanigans and live to murder another day? Check out the video below to find out.

The first episode of Hitman launches on March 11 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. See more of the game in action in this extended developer gameplay video
