IO Interactive has announced that the first episode of HITMAN will be available to everyone for free later today. The download includes absolutely everything that we’ve released for that location; two story missions (including all cut-scenes), two Escalation Contracts, more than 40 challenges, 17 achievements and trophies, plus thousands of player-created missions in Contracts Mode.

Players who download the ICA Facility for free will be able to keep all of their progress when they upgrade to the full game. In addition, IO Interactive will be offering its title with some impressive discounts.

Hakan Abrak, CEO Io-Interactive, said:

“I’m proud to announce that our first hello as an independent studio is to invite all gamers to play the beginning of HITMAN for free. There is a lot of love out there for HITMAN and with this offering we hope that many more will fall in love with the game. We believe that this is Hitman at its best. So jump in and give a try.”

HITMAN’s first episode will be available for free in around 4 hours from now (6PM CEST)!
