Nothing gets you into the Holiday Spirit more than
alcohol free video game updates and Hitman it surprisingly joining in the mix of things to let us kill a few more people during the joyous season. Not only that but it looks like Io Interactive and Square Enix are not just bringing more to play for the game in terms of a new full mission but it will also be doled out to all of us for free. Yes, another mission for Hitman, for free, for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and also coming on December 13th. Not what one would expect but I won't toss a free gift like this aside as the game is pretty spectacular in its own right.
While it would have been cool to see Santa Workshop done up as a full level in Hitman, that will not be part of this freebie. We will be back in Paris and using that map but it will be covered in festive decorations and party goers there for the holidays instead of a huge fashion show. Like I said, this is a full mission like the two we had over the Summer and in this one it looks like there are two asshats who want to steal presents that are there for the guests. Agent 47 can't let this happen and he needs to put a stop to it with …murder… Seems like a reasonable solution to these two Grinches who want to ruin everyone's fun. Who is going to know anyways as we recreate Black Christmas for the masses?
Hitman — Holiday Hoarders
The mission, ‘Holiday Hoarders’ is new bespoke content set in Paris. Using the Showstopper mission as a backdrop, Paris has been given a festive overhaul with Christmas trees, decorations and presents throughout the Palace. Unfortunately not everyone at the fashion show is there to spread festive joy. Two thieves have gained entrance to the fashion show event and are stealing presents. As Agent 47, it’s your job to stop them. Feel free to open up some of the presents you find as some of the content will be handy to get the job done…..oh and listen out for the sleigh bells for a surprise guest, whose suit might come in handy…!
"Holiday Hoarders" is a free mission for ALL players that takes place in a festive Paris, which has been overhauled with Christmas trees, snow, decorations and presents.
The mission will be released in support of World Cancer Research Fund and we are asking players to give what they can via www.wcrf-uk.org/hitman
On the surface this is a free bit of DLC for Hitman but in all reality someone needed to foot the bill and it looks like it wasn't Square Enix fully here. The "Holiday Hoarders" mission is being brought to us by the World Cancer Research Fund as well. While it isn't necessary to be able to download and play the new mission for Hitman it is being used to help promote their fund raiser and donations are always welcome. So you can be a decent human and give some money for the extra bits of holiday murder we will be getting, if you can, or just be one of those asshats who take the free stuff without giving back. Just wanted to make sure you knew that as well.
Does it seem odd to you to have Agent 47 killing for Christmas in this new mission for Hitman? Do you think this will be a constant as we wait for the second season of the game to finally come? Will you be donating to a great cause while playing out all of you messed up fantasies in the game? Let us know down in the comments and feel free to discuss. Of course there is going to be more on Hitman and of course we will have it all here. Be sure to stay locked into the site so you don't miss out on any of the other fun updates that will be coming soon.
