A month ago we covered news on the new Hitman game, revealing that it would be a 'fully episodic' release with the game and expansion packs arriving episode by episode and being priced accordingly. Now, as the release draws nearer, and a beta test release nearer still, we welcome a new launch trailer and the publishing of the PC minimum and recommended specs for the game.

The recently published beta launch trailer, above, professes to show us the beginning. It introduces us to a top secret recruitment and training facility and revolves around how Agent 47 joined the ICA. In another recent trailer, below, we are invited to "enter a world of assassinations" as the video provides us with a back story to how hired killers are part of the fabric of society, business and politics.

As relayed by the beta launch trailer, starting tomorrow (February 12th at 11am CET or 8am PST) PS4 gamers who have pre-ordered Hitman will be able to play the beta. PC gamers will have to wait until 19th February and fulfil the similar proviso of having pre-ordered the game on Steam.

In both cases the finished game is targeted for release in March, as the 'Hitman Intro Pack' of the core game with prologue mission and the first chapter set in Paris. Six further episodes will arrive with Sapienza, Italy the next in line, due in April. You can also pre-purchase the 'Hitman Full Experience' to get all the planned packs at a discount and be kept busy between episodes with Contracts Mode, Escalation Mode, elusive targets and other live content.

PC system requirements are as follows:



  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7
  • Processor: Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz / AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 / Radeon HD 7870
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 / 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1) or Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel CPU Core i7 3770 3,4 GHz / AMD CPU AMD FX-8350 4 GHz
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 770 / AMD GPU Radeon R9 290
  • DirectX: Version 11

Really looking forward to this one :) Just waiting for a decent pre-order deal.
i5 Minimum, wow.
so the minimum processor is either an i5-2500k released in jan 2011. versus and AMD x4-940 released in Jan 2009. the intel being vastly faster than it. http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-2500K-vs-AMD-Phenom-II-X4-940

that is why I don't trust these ‘minimum system requirements’ they put out.

I suspect it will work on my onboard graphics, but probably wont be able to find out, because game companies no longer seem to do game demos. its all early access nonsense, or pre-order beta codswallop. :mad:
