Io-Interactive’s new HITMAN game will be receiving a Beta on PlayStation 4 on Febuary 12 and PC on February 19. Despite the game being available on Xbox One, that platform will not receive a Beta.
The HITMAN Beta is set twenty years in the past at a top-secret ICA recruitment and training facility. The mission is based on Agent 47’s recruitment into the ICA, and shows his first meeting with his long-time handler, Diana Burnwood.
Pre-ordering HITMAN on PlayStation 4 or PC will guarantee players access to the Beta.
Developer Io-Interactive has also announced that HITMAN on PlayStation 4 will feature six exclusive contracts called “The Sarajevo Six”. Each target was a private soldier guilty of committing brutal war crimes. One contract will be available per location, with the first three being available when HITMAN launches on March 11, 2016. The rest will become available in April, May and June as more locations are added to the game.
