We’ve become accustomed to various exotic locations in which you’d stealthily eliminate targets in either conventional ways or scenes that would appear accidental to some in the Hitman series. Now, Agent 47 will get some new stamps in his passport and try on new disguises in seven locations around the world.
Since its announcement at E3 we saw Agent 47 lurking about in southern Florida and recently announced Santa Fortuna, Colombia, as a location, IO Interactive gave us the other 5 locations, namely Mumbai; the Hawke’s Bay region of New Zealand; Whittleton Creek in the US; and the Isle of Sgàil somewhere in the North Atlantic Ocean. The Sniper Assassin game mode will take place in Himmelstein, Austria, with the other six locations tied to the game’s story missions with the latter three being noticeable fictional locations that may be inspired by real settings.
Here are the descriptions for each location as mentioned above:
Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand
Your mission brings you to the moonlit beaches and roaring waves off the coast of Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Enjoy a moonlit stroll and retire for the evening on the deck of a highly secured luxury beach house.
Embark on a sun-drenched mission in Miami where you will attend the final hours of the Global Innovation Race – a motorsports event showcasing the very latest in modern car design. Join a crowd of thousands of excited spectators at the biggest racing event of the year.
Santa Fortuna, Colombia
Your mission takes you to the remote village of Santa Fortuna, entrenched deep inside the lush Colombian rainforest. Located at the foot of the infamous Delgado mansion, Santa Fortuna offers the discerning tourist everything from beautiful waterfalls to genuine spirit journeys and the chance to spend time with charming fishermen at the town’s local watering hole.
Nicknamed “City of Dreams,” Mumbai is a treat for any visiting traveler or agent on a mission. Lose yourself in the crowds of the city’s famous slums or admire Bollywood movie locations from afar; Mumbai will not disappoint with its colorful life and countless hidden secrets.
