Following the highly successful release of Hitman GO for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices, Square Enix Montréal announced that the critically acclaimed turn-based mobile strategy game will be coming to both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita system in 2016.
Gameplay will be updated and optimized for both the console and Vita versions, inviting users to experience Hitman GO’s unique turn-based puzzle mechanics seamlessly on each platform. With all in-app purchases removed and newly added trophies for completionists, the game’s 91 levels with a renowned difficulty curve will surely please both new and veteran Hitman fans on console.
Hitman GO is a turn-based strategy game where you will strategically navigate fixed spaces on a grid to avoid enemies, infiltrate well-guarded locations and take out your target on beautifully rendered diorama-style set pieces. You really have to think about each move and all the Hitman tools of the trade you would expect are included; disguises distractions, sniper rifles and even 47’s iconic Silverballers.
“Evolving the legendary stealth franchise from a third-person console action game to a turn-based strategy game for mobile was a unique endeavor but one that has resulted in global praise for the mobile game,” said Patrick Naud, Head of Studio at Square Enix Montréal. “Expanding the audience by bringing the game to Sony’s premier devices was an ideal opportunity and we know the game will continue its growth on these platforms.”
Hitman GO won awards for Best Game Design and Best iOS Game for the 2014 Canadian Videogame Awards.
