New Gameplay Today – Hitman: Game Of The Year Edition

by Jeff Cork on Nov 07, 2017 at 08:00 PM

Last year's episodic Hitman game was a polarizing chapter in the long-running series. While some players (including our own reviewer, Jeff Marchiafava) were underwhelmed by the experience, others put it on the top of their year-end lists. Leo Vader is among the latter crowd, and he, Fava, and I gathered together to check out a new mission from the Hitman: Game of the Year Edition's Patient Zero campaign. 

In this mission, which is set in Bangkok, Agent 47 is tasked with taking down a doomsday cult by eliminating its two leaders. Leo went into it blind, and let's just say that he did... an okay job. Even without the benefits that come from methodical planning and observation, we did get to see a bunch of new things. Just don't expect to see the words "Silent Assassin" anywhere in this episode. 

The update releases today, and includes several new outfits and guns that Leo forgot to mention.
