The new Hitman seems to be outperforming everyone's expectations. That's a good thing.
The new episodic structure also appears to be a good thing. Episode 3 is out tomorrow and if you feel like taking a 360 degree tour through the new environment of Marrakesh, this brand new trailer has you sorted.
I like the idea of Hitman being episodic. The reality: Hitman has always been about multiple small-scale sandboxes and replay value. Providing players with these in a slow drip fashion allows players to experiment with different spaces, but provides new content before it all gets a bit stale.
Also: Marrakesh looks pretty great.
