Hitman GO, a turn-based translation of the Hitman series, is making its move on the App Store at midnight tonight.
We have been keeping an excited eye on Hitman GO since it was announced back in February. Square Enix Montreal’s new take on the franchise sends Agent 47 on a number of hits, each one styled as its own board game.
Each board sets the scene with diorama environments for the infamous assassin to advance through. Though this change in scene has shifted the gameplay to a turn-based format, you will have to plan the barcoded assassin’s route to his target, and decide whether to sneak in and shank your unsuspecting victim, or charge in for a full-frontal assault.
Whatever tactics you decide on, you will have to plan carefully, taking note of security’s positions, and plotting your movements and distractions accordingly to ensure you successfully complete the hit.
We will be eager to see if Hitman GO lives up to our hopes when it is released on the App Store tonight at midnight for £2.99 / $4.99.
