The season finale for Hitman 2016 is here, taking Agent 47 to Hokkaido in Japan for a climatic finish. IO Interactive say that the first season's final mission, dubbed "Situs Inversus" is the "culmination" of everything players have learned throughout the first season's previous episodes.
Situs Inversus is a congenital condition by which many of the body's major organs are placed on the opposite side to usual. This could be a clue as to the nature of the final mission's kill targets, or perhaps a metaphor for the conclusion of the game's mysterious plot. Either way, players can pick up the final episode on Xbox Live or on Steam right now to find out the truth.
Hokkaido will take players into a Japanese private hospital and spa for the rich and powerful. Agent 47 is tasked to navigate this secluded facility, which is decorated with traditional Japanese furnishings and cutting-edge medical technology. It even has a sushi restaurant, ripe for the poisoning.
In a statement, Hitman's developer IO Interactive hailed the episodic nature of the game, after the franchise's previous entry, Hitman Absolution, proved disappointingly linear. It looks as though the new model has been successful for IO Interactive and Square Enix,
Io-Interactive's Studio Head Hannes Seifert went on to state that this isn't the end of Hitman, noting that the "World of Assassination" will be ever-expanding. Considering Square Enix are calling the past six episodes "Season 1," it seems fair to assume there will be a "Season 2."
Stay tuned to MML on Wednesday where we'll be doing a giveaway of an Xbox One Hitman Collector's Edition to celebrate the first season's completion!
