The second episode takes place in Sapienza, a fictional coastal town in sunny Italy. Sapienza will feature a variety of locations to explore, including a sprawling mansion and medieval church.

“Sapienza is a dense location full of challenges and packed with opportunities and stories for the enterprising player to unfold. And as with all locations within Hitman, dark secrets and engaging stories are everywhere to be found in charming Sapienza.”

The Sapienza location was originally intended to be playable at launch, until IO Interactive decided to make Hitman fully episodic.

Hitman’s third episode, set in Morocco, is coming in May. If you can’t wait that long, a number of free update are due in the coming weeks.

Square Enix plans to release every episode before the end of 2016, with a physical release to come next year.
