Globe-trot to Bangkok later this month in Hitman’s new episode

Players will track down an indie rock star in a Thai hotel

Hitman’s fourth episode will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, developer Io Interactive announced today. The episode is set for release on Aug. 16.

Hitman: Bangkok will task players with exploring a lavish hotel — a location familiar to longtime fans of the series — in search of hip indie rock star Jordan Cross. Io Interactive released a music video for Cross’s band The Class in anticipation for the upcoming episode, which you can view above.

Assassination target Jordan Cross is a fictional character, but players recently got the chance to take down real-life actor Gary Busey when the developers released him as an Elusive Target last month.

Three additional episodes are planned for release before the end of the year; the previous one took place in Marrakesh, Morocco. Hitman: Bangkok will be available on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
