The Hitman beta is gearing up for this weekend, and it’s been revealed that it will require a constant internet connection. However, Square Enix has confirmed that this won’t be the case for the full game releasing in March.
The Hitman publisher confirmed to VideoGamer that players will be able to play the full game offline after downloading it.
“Yes, you can play the full game offline after you have downloaded an episode,” Square Enix clarified. “But there are live elements which you will need to access online.”
Hitman launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 11.
