Hitman Sapienza

Sapienza looks a right treat. It's sunny, the architecture's wonderful, and all you have to put up with is the occasional incredibly conspicuous hitman murdering people while dressed as a postman, a scientist, or some sort of vampire. The Italian coastal town is the setting of Hitman's imminent second episode, which as you'll know by now is due to arrive on April 26, AKA next Tuesday.

Here's a launch trailer for the episode, a full five days early:

According to the YouTube description, your primary target in Ep 2 is one Silvio Caruso, "a brilliant bioengineer reportedly working on a DNA-specific virus able to infect anyone anywhere in the world". Witness Agent 47 on his merry way to murder him in the above trailer.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
