Hitman 2 Holiday Themed Surprise Event Arrives on December 18, Road Map Revealed

IO Interactive is busy releasing a lot of free content for Hitman 2 and they have now revealed that there’s a new holiday-themed surprise event coming soon. Hitman 2 is a stealth action-adventure title in which you take the role of the famous assassin known as Agent 47.

There are some new contracts already available. The latest drop came in the form of Occupational Hazards contract which is now available in Hitman 2. These Occupational Hazards contracts in Hitman 2 include all of the featured contracts created by the community. These contracts are based on themes.

Now as for the holiday-themed surprise event, it’ll arrive on December 18 in Hitman 2 but for a limited time so stay tuned to know what exactly it brings.

IO Interactive has also released their roadmap of Hitman 2 which showcases all of the upcoming content in December 2018. You can check out the roadmap of Hitman 2 for the month of December below.

A month full of content that will give you new challenges and new rewards. Each week, you’ll be able to play something fresh and new, including a holiday surprise! Here’s a full look at everything that’s coming your way in December!

December 6 – Occupational Hazards

To kick things off, we’ve cherry-picked 5 Featured Contracts to be added to the game. All Featured Contracts are created by members of the community and then added to the game for all players to enjoy. For HITMAN 2, we will pick our Featured Contracts based on themes – and the first is ‘Occupational Hazards’, as all contracts are focused on jobs, occupations and professions. Later this month, we’ll share information on the theme for January and how you can submit your contracts to be included.

December 13 – The Aelwin Augment

Escalation Contracts focus on your skills as Agent 47 and how you can adapt your playstyles to the various complications that we can throw your way. Escalations are not necessarily about immersion, but definitely give you a gameplay challenge. Our second Escalation Contract (we’ve already released one in Santa Fortuna!) takes you to Isle of Sgail and we think it’ll be a memorable visit.

December 18 – Surprise!

A time-limited holiday surprise awaits you on December 18 for a limited time…

December 21 – The Revolutionary

A new Elusive Target will arrive in Santa Fortuna for 10 days and you’ll be able to unlock the Casual Tourist with gloves suit if you manage to complete it. Check our Elusive Target Rewards blog post for a full overview of the ET rewards. We’ll tell you more about this contract at a later date.

December 27 – The Turms Infatuation

We wrap up the month (pun intended) with an Escalation in Santa Fortuna. Enjoy!

Other than that, a new video called “How to Hitman: Hidden in Plain Sight” has been released. This video shows you how to take out your assigned targets out without being detected.

As for IO Interactive, it has been rumored that Microsoft is interested in acquiring it. This news came from a famous leaker on ResetEra. If this is true, upcoming Hitman games could release exclusively for Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.

Hitman 2 is now available to play on Xbox One, PC and PS4.
