Have You Played… Hitman: Codename 47?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

The main way I used to play games was via demos on magazine coverdiscs, and the demo I remember most fondly was for Hitman: Codename 47.

Man Vs. Murderbot In Hitman Summer Bonus Episode

Ian Hitman is having a summer staycation in July with the Summer Bonus Episode, publishers Square Enix have announced. Why a staycation? While Hitman [official site] episodes so far have added new areas, the Summer Bonus Episode will revisit Marrakesh and Sapienza for new murdermissions. He’ll be offing a mole in Morocco and in Sapienza, well! Seems a film crew is in town with a honking great robot and a knock-off Iron Man, and someone needs to break more than just a leg.

Hitman’s Third Elusive Target Now Live

Honestly, you wait ages for one elusive target and then… No, I can’t even be bothered to finish that joke. Let’s get to the meat of this announcement so you can get on with your life of assassinating targets and polishing your barcode.

The third Hitman’s [official site] elusive target – The Prince – is now live in Sapienza. Well, he is unless you’ve already taken him out, in which case… good job? Leon would be proud. If not, read on for more:

Wot I Think: Hitman Episode 3 – Marrakesh

The trend for Hitman’s [official site] episodic levels to be grow bigger and more populous with each new installment continues unabated with third map Marrakesh, which is frankly just showing off. There’s just no need to emerge from a vast crowd of tourists into a shop populated by hundreds of beautifully-glowing lamps and, from there, into an even larger horde, this time of protesters raging amid coloured smoke. No need whatsoever. Bless ’em for doing it anyway.

Head-Spinning Heights: Hitman’s 360° Marrakesh Trailer

It’s tough being hip nowadays, what with all the mobile cellular telephones and social medias and streams and memes. Another fad that seems to be becoming increasingly popular is 360 degree “interactive” videogame trailers. I like these and the latest Hitman [official site] number takes us to Marrakesh, should you wish to visit the Moroccan city before getting your hands on Agent 47’s latest outing that’s out today.

Hitman: The Congressman Now On The Loose

Straight out of an Agatha Christie adaptation

This is your friendly reminder that the second Elusive Target (a limited time, no do-overs mission) should now be live in Hitman [official site]. Unless you’ve been stupidly efficient and somehow killed whoever it is on spawn already.

Well, I say “whoever it is” but they’ve called the mission “The Congressman” so I’m guessing you’re taking out a congressman and from the picture he seems like a sort of jowly hat-wearer who you might find on a foreign vacation in a Poirot mystery.

Hitman Episode 3 Visiting Marrakesh Next Week

The third episode of the new Hitman [official site] will launch next Tuesday, May 31st, Square Enix have announced. Ian Hitman’s next assignment will take him to the city of Marrakesh in Morocco, where someone wants a banker and a general dead. Given how much of an improvement the second episode was over the first, this is jolly exciting.
