What is HITMAN Freelancer all about?
In a new trailer, IO Interactive has revealed a new and upcoming game mode for HITMAN 3, titled HITMAN Freelancer. With this, a lot of things will be different from the normal gameplay of HITMAN games, and involve something that IO Interactive terms “strategic planning”.
In the main game, you work under an influential organization that does most of the work for you. This includes finding the targets, and also providing you with all the equipment and supplies that are required. However, in this new game mode, you would have to do most of it by yourself.
To keep it short and simple, Freelancer offers a unique take on standard HITMAN missions where you will have to make your strategy based on the available information, and also have to be very careful in choosing the right combination of location, equipment and objectives.
Independent experience with HITMAN Freelancer
You will get an experience that is a lot more independent, and most of the surrounding work that is normally done by the organization will now have to be done by you. Apart from that, the players will also have to build and maintain their own set of gear, weapons, and more. The decision of which weapons to bring into your missions will also fall on you. And, you also have to bear the risk of losing all the valuable and rear equipment.
The players will also get to decide which Syndicates they will be going against, and it will all be based on the player’s preference, type of gameplay, and also the locations. Choosing the proper gear and equipment will play a crucial role in determining how the mission goes.
Through the Showdown missions, the players will also have to identify targets, and do their recon and investigation work.
HITMAN Freelancer release date - When is it coming out?
This new game mode of HITMAN 3 is coming out later this month. IO Interactive has officially announced the release date of HITMAN Freelancer, and it is January 26, 2023.
HITMAN Freelancer is a new and upcoming game mode of HITMAN 3 where the players will have to do a lot more than what they normally do in standard HITMAN missions. Making a proper strategy is crucial, and decision-making will play a big role in this new mode.
