Agent 47′s next adventure will be released in multiple parts. Today publisher Square Enix announced that the next Hitman game will be a “fully episodic” release, with the first episode of the game, which takes place in Paris, due to launch on March 11th.
Love this. Breaking games up has many benefits:
It’s cheaper: maybe in the long run, but buying an episode for $15, instead of having to pay $60 at once for the whole game, makes more sense to me.
Easier to digest: I don’t have time to finish a whole game right away, but an episode seems achievable with my schedule.
Gives me something to look forward to: I know they’ll be another episode right around the corner, so not only am I anticipating the next release, it’ll also encourage me to finish the previous one before the next one arrives.
