Hitman: Episode 5 will be set in Colorado, USA, out on September 27
Square Enix and IO Interactive announced today that Hitman: Episode 5 will be set in Colorado, USA when it launches on the 27th September.
Here is an overview, via Square Enix:
For the penultimate episode in Hitman Season One, the mission “Freedom Fighters” is not one to be taken lightly. Agent 47 must infiltrate a Colorado farm compound that has been converted into a private militia training camp. Players are presented with an intense infiltration mission to locate and take out four targets.
Sean Rose, Maya Parvati, Ezra Berg and Penelope Graves are four very different, very dangerous people, each with their own specialist skillset ranging from environmental terrorism to chemical interrogation. This will be the toughest assignment yet for Agent 47. Players must utilize all the skills learned so far.
“This is one of the toughest episodes yet. Not only do you have four targets, but from the moment you set foot in Colorado you’re on enemy ground,” said Hannes Seifert, studio head at Io-Interactive. “‘Freedom Fighters’ is a key episode, which will add serious momentum to the story and set up an intriguing season finale for players.”
With all-new opportunities and disguises, and with 70 different challenges unlocking brand new gear, weapons, and items, Episode 5: Colorado rewards players with huge story revelations as the season builds towards a thrilling climax.

“The PC version of Hitman received a 200MB game update today that includes fixes for a rare crash issue when launching contract creation, occasional sound stuttering issues, an issue where a contract could launch with no objectives, and an issue where challenges were sometimes inaccurately evaluated. The update is expected to arrive next week for PS4 and Xbox One.”
