We are approaching the one year anniversary for HITMAN 2, taking lessons learned from the episodic release of Hitman in 2016 and making a ton of improvements. Hitman 2 did away with the episodic formula, but has continued to be updated with fresh content each month. Now for October, there are nine free DLC updates coming to the game with timed events, challenges and more.
Hitman 2 has a stacked month ahead. Players can look forward to a new Halloween-themed mission, new unlockable items, new suits for Agent 47, new contracts, new challenges and a new elusive target.
Here is the full list of free updates coming this month:
- Halloween Escalation Contract – Available 22nd October
- New Elusive Target, “The Serial Killer,” in Whittleton Creek (Vermont/U.S.) – Beginning 25th October
- The Riviera Restoration Escalation Contract in Miami (Florida/U.S.) – Available 3rd October
- The Divine Descendance Escalation Contract in Mumbai (India) – Available 10th October
- Legacy Elusive Target, “The Warlord,” in Bangkok (Thailand) – Beginning 11th October
- Trick or Treat Featured Contracts – Available 17th October
- Legacy Challenge Packs – Available 22nd October
- Legacy Escalation Contracts – Available 31st October
- Uninvited Challenge Pack in Hawke’s Bay (New Zealand) – Available 31st October
The Hitman 2 Starter Pack is available for free on Steam and contains the full Hawke's Bay level and all of its associated challenges. The Hitman 2 standard edition bundle contains the full game, which will get you access to all of the events listed above.
KitGuru Says: Hitman 2 might not make headlines regularly but if you are a fan of the series, I do think it is worth picking up and trying out. Some of the free post-launch content has been a lot of fun and by the looks of it, October is going to be a huge month for that.
