Hitman's Prologue Mission Is Now Free

Hitman's Prologue Mission Is Now Free

IO Interactive have made the first level of their episodic game free on PS4, Xbox One and PC, reported IGN.

The prologue mission will be available at no cost starting today. As per the official site:

“I’m proud to announce that our first hello as an independent studio is to invite all gamers to play the beginning of HITMAN for free. There is a lot of love out there for HITMAN and with this offering we hope that many more will fall in love with the game. We believe that this is Hitman at its best. So jump in and give a try.” – Hakan Abrak, CEO Io-Interactive.

Note this is not the first episode per se, but the first four sections of the game in the ICA Facility, ending with the airbase hanger.

This is no doubt the news IO were teasing just a few days ago, after the developer bought itself from Square Enix.

Cool - I'm still waiting for it to go cheap so this will tide me over until then.

So its not the first episode for free like alot of them are... its just the first part of episode 1 that is free? So effectively a demo of Episode 1..
That's the way I read it anyway. Might as well give it a go.

Nah, the prologue is completely different from Episode 1. Its a training mission that you run through in a rather Spartan environment. Its basically the tutorial.

It's not a bad size demo to see if you like the game; could take a few hours; if you tried to assassinate the targets in different ways each time
