Welcome to Sapienza, Italy – a fictional city with beautiful beaches, medieval churches, luxurious mansions and killers for hire. I kow what you are thinking: this seems like the perfect vacation spot for Agent 47 and his trusty sniper rifle.

IO Interactive thinks so too, and our bald assassin will indeed visit Sapienza in the upcoming Hitman reboot. However, as the trailer above shows, he seems to be travelling on business. “Sapienza is a dense location full of challenges and packed with opportunities and stories for the enterprising player to unfold,” reads the official announcement, and it’s easy to see that this is the absolute truth.

Sapienza, Italy is the second location to be announced for Hitman, the first being the very real city of Paris. I’m guessing a third location will official be announced soon, though IO Interactive has already revealed it will be Marrakesh in Morocco.

Hitman will be released on March 11, 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
