Two new missions breathe new life into Sapienza and Marrakesh!

Is that your website or something?

Why not post this link? (the legit source?)

To answer your questions:
Yes

And my posts are from the legit source as Square Enix sends me press-assets. Also, I figure the opinion of fellow gamer would be more appreciated than a media blurb. I don't just spout back what was sent to me.

Fair play dude, nothing wrong with a bit of shameless plugging from time to time.

I'm looking forward to this update/content. I look forward to all Hitman content though if i'm honest. And since I wasn't expecting this, it's a bonus for me!

Let's hope it's good :)

It looks like this is the secret 7th episode that wasn't revealed at the start of the season. If it is, that's a shame. I wanted a secret location, and not a reuse of the same locations. I would like to see all of the locations get a second mission.

It says they are not episodes. And not part of the season story mode. They are bonus missions. Episode 7 im sure is still coming after Japan.

I just hope these aren't ultra simple filler such as The Sarajevo Six missions, with the targets only staying in one spot the whole time. Is The Icon the famed Gary Busey mission? Also sounds like contracts mode won't be available in these 2 new settings. Also, they are not calling this an "episode".

That is incorrect, my good man. Collectively, this is being called the "Summer bonus Episode." It consists of two individual missions at two locations. I don't know about contracts, but I hope there will be some escalations and possibly an Elusive Target using the nighttime versions of these locations.

Im sure it'll be cool but all I'm hearing is "you won't be getting the next actual episode for another month, have this instead"

From what I read, that would be 100% correct. I do not expect to see episode #4 until August at least.

I heard about this on Gypsy's Youtube channel. Sounds good.

If it's August, probably late in the month like Sapienza and Marakkesh. That's a three month wait which is very disappointing. I was on board with the episodic release until now. This totally sucks. The summer bonus content is probably one evening of gaming. Elusive targets take about 15 minutes at most. The game essentially sits on the shelf until August. What is the point? I'm sure it benefits iO financially, but as the consumer, it's not the best experience.

yeah, I have a feeling the bonus episode will be much smaller, since it's 2 missions, alot of the areas will not be accessible. Hope I'm wrong, and I'm grateful we are getting them, but I have a feeling the sewers, mansion, ruins areas will be blocked off as well as consulate, school areas in Morocco. Again, hope I am wrong. Maybe, they've actually added accessible areas that weren't before..... One month to go

How do I unlock these missions, because I came on the game today and never got prompted with an update :(
