Square Enix will be releasing a beta for the new Hitman and has announced it via this launch trailer. The beta will include training levels and will be part of the Prologue introductory mission.
The Beta will feature the first episode titled “The Prologue” and is basically just a tutorial for the game. In this episode, the players will be introduced to a younger Agent 47, as this stage will be set 20 years before the events of the game. This is his introduction to the ICA and his handler, Diana Burnwood. Don’t expect much from the beta though, as it would be just a training exercise instead of an actual assassination mission.
The Hitman Beta will be released for the PS4 on February 12, 2016 and will end on February 15, 2016. The PC version will come later on February 19 to Feb 22. No mention of an Xbox One Hitman Beta version so sorry, Xbox One users.
The new Hitman game will release the first episode on March 11 for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
