Hitman: New beta trailer and details By André Mackowiak on February 8, 2016 at 3:05 PM

Today, IO-Interactive published an updated FAQ for the Hitman beta and a new trailer.

As we already knew the beta will include the game’s prologue, which is the introduction in the full game and takes us to Agent 47’s beginning at the ICA, meeting his handler Diana Burnwood for the first time.

The beta will include two free-form training hits. You’ll be able to replay each hit as many times as you wish throughout the beta period to complete the challenges and the multiple ways to take down your target. The new Contracts Mode is not included in the beta, though.

These are the official beta times, as revealed by IO:

SCEE regions (Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Oceania)

The PS4 Beta is scheduled to start at 11:00 CET on February 12th 2016 and end on February 15th at 11:00 CET.
(It’s at this time that you’ll see the Beta in the PSN Store. Anyone with an active pre-order will be able to download it.)

SCEA regions (United States, Canada and Latin America.
The PS4 Beta is scheduled to start at 08.00 PST on February 12th and ends on February 15th at 08.00 PST.
(It’s at this time that you’ll see the Beta in the PSN Store. Anyone with an active pre-order will be able to download it.)

The PC Beta is scheduled to start at 11:00 CET on February 19th 2016 and ends on February 22nd at 11:00 CET worldwide.

The beta file is about 4,7GB on PS4, about the same size on PC. Sharing videos/screenshots from the beta is allowed, following the Material Usage Policy by Square Enix. You will need a permanent internet connection to download/play the beta and because of age verification a PS+ membership is necessary in Germany (no PS+ required in other countries).

IO-Interactive mentioned ways for feedback collection during the beta, too. Besides from the official social media sites, the forums and a survey at the end of the beta period will be waiting for your input. The developers even teased a method called the “Hitman Player Panel”. It sounds like a selected group of players, who are allowed to interact with the studio in a more direct way.

As a side note the studio revealed that the beta will be in English only. The full game will have English dubs with subtitles in  English, Spanish (Spain & Latin America), French, Italian, German, Polish, Russian and Portuguese (Brazil).
