This will be another challenging task that Agent 47 and the player will have to take seriously if they want to be successful.
The objective for Episode 5 will take Agent 47 to a Colorado farm compound, which he must infiltrate the newly converted militia training camp and do what he does best, assassinate the target. However, unlike most missions and challenges, it’s not just one, two or even three targets, yarp, that’s right, Agent 47 will have to take out four specially trained militants in order to punch out his time card for the day.
A plethora of newly added opportunities, disguises, gear, weapons and items greet gamers as they dip their paws into the penultimate episode of Season One. Rewarding those who finish the toughest mission yet comes a major story revelation that will make us frantically wait at the edge of our seats until the final climactic season finale, taking place in Japan, arrives later this year.
