The people over at Io-Interactive are feeling the holiday spirit a little early this year, coming next week, December 13th, is a new Holiday Content update for the ever popular Hitman series.

In the upcoming ‘Holiday Hoarders’ special mission, which is set in Episode 1’s Paris locale, utilizing the preexisting ‘ShowStopper’ mission content as a backdrop. Fully decked halls and all the bling-bling associated with the big red bastard’s holly-jolly December festivities can be seen in the above trailer.

Christmas trees, decorations, presents and assassinations, not a bad match if you ask me. Agent 47 will have his hands full this Holiday Season; it seems two sly thieves have decided to hit up the booming fashion show event being held in Paris. With the goal of ruining Christmas for all the boys n’ girls, these thieving Grinches must be stopped at all cost.

Feel free to open some of the presents early, you might find something useful hidden within. Oh and how about keeping an eye, nay an ear open for jolly ol’ Saint Nicholas, I hear he’s sporting a spiffy little number that Agent 47 may want to add to his ensemble.

The “Holiday hoarders” special mission will be available December 13th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, in support of the World Cancer Research Fund.

“Cancer is something which affects everyone in one way or another at some point in their lives and we at IOI wanted to do something to help raise money for Cancer research,” said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive. “We’re supporting World Cancer Research Fund by giving away some fun free Holiday content to all HITMAN players and we ask you in return if you want to donate to a great cause, to give what you can via WCRF-UK.ORG/HITMAN.
