Io Interactive has made Hitman’s first location free to play for everyone! According to CEO Hakan Abrak, they made the game’s prologue free to download to celebrate the studio’s being independent. He also believes that the prologue is “Hitman at its best.”
“I’m proud to announce that our first hello as an independent studio is to invite all gamers to play the beginning of HITMAN for free. There is a lot of love out there for HITMAN and with this offering we hope that many more will fall in love with the game. We believe that this is Hitman at its best. So jump in and give a try.”
The prologue includes: two story missions (includes all cutscenes), two Escalation Contracts, 17 achievements, trophies, more than 40 challenges, and thousands of player-created missions in Contracts mode.
Should you wish to buy the game later on after giving Hitman’s first location a try, all your progress will be carried over to the full game. The game is currently at 60% off on Steam, Io Interactive has announced.
