Epic Games continues its marketing strategy

The 2016 Hitman by IO Interactive has won awards for its gameplay and execution. Furthermore, getting the game for free is probably one of the best hypes Epic could provide its patrons. This will also go on to induce the customer base for Hitman 3. Hitman 3 will be an Epic Games Store exclusive.

Epic Games does this free giveaway every week. Currently, you can pick up Enter the Gungeon and also God’s Trigger for free. Next week, along with Hitman, gamers can also get the Shadowrun Collection for free.

The Hitman series focuses on assassins and murders around puzzling environments. Agent 47, the protagonist, has a special set of skills that allow him to be a skillful killer. Not every murder is grotesque in execution. Some are clean and calm. While it does sound sadistic to play a game that focuses only on killing, fans of the franchise will disagree.
