IO Interactive have unveiled a roadmap of post-launch content for Hitman 3, promising free new content that you can play through the rest of February. This includes new Featured Contracts, two new Escalations and an Elusive Target contract set in Sapienza level.
It all starts today with the first Escalation, dubbed The Baskerville Barney, and continues next week with a Dubai Featured Contract that has been created in collaboration with MinnMax. A further Featured Contract is coming from KindaFunny on 23rd February, which is also when two Deluxe Escalations will be added to the game for Deluxe Edition buyers, adding in a handful of new game items as well.
Here’s the full breakdown:
- The Baskerville Barney Escalation – 4th February
- MinnMax Dubai Featured Contract – 11th February
- The Sinbad Stringent Escalation – 18th February
- KindaFunny Dartmoor Featured Contract – 23rd February
- The Gauchito Antiguity Deluxe Escalation – 23rd February
- The Proloff Parable Deluxe Escalation – 23rd February
- The Deceivers Elusive Target – 26th February to 8th March
The two Deluxe Escalation missions add The Guru Suit, Guru’s Pen Syringe Emetic and Guru’s Emetic Grenade for The Gauchito Antiquity, and The White Shadow costume, Custom Sieger 300 sniper rifle and White Katana fo The Proloff Parable.
Paving the way for some of this, IO Interactive are working on a patch that is due in ta few weeks on 23rd February (alongside the largest content drop of the month), bringing fixes and tweaks to the game.
We can expect Hitman 3 to continue to see similar updates over the coming months, but post-launch support will be somewhat different to Hitman 2. Hitman 3 has finished off the World of Assassination trilogy’s overarching story, so where Hitman 2 had additional levels as DLC that continued the plot in certain ways, Hitman 3 will not be receiving additional levels. Instead IO will focus on adding new missions to the levels that already exist, and seemingly tap into levels from across the whole trilogy in order to do so.
Hitman 3 wraps the stylish and inventive trilogy perfectly, having scored an 8 out of 10 in our review. Hitman 3 is now available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, as well as Google Stadia and Nintendo Switch.
