Hitman’s December ‘Holiday’ Update Now Available

International assassins rejoice, the December Hitman ‘Holiday Hoarders’ update is now available.

While its episodic release structure has put a lot of people off, as a long time Hitman fan, I feel that it has become a damn good Hitman game overtime. The extra DLC that Io Interactive are pumping out is a nice gesture when most developers release the initial content, then are done for good, forever leaving titles to fester and rot.

The new update is out now, the new mini mission called “Holiday Hoarders” is included. Macaulay Culkin…er, I mean Agent 47 must track down a pair of thieves by the names of Harry “Smokey” Bagnato and Marv “Slick” Gonif, eliminate them, then ride off into the cold winter night to finish delivering presents to all good assassin boys and girls.

You have just one chance, plan according and do check out the briefing trailer above!


Official Press Release

COPENHAGEN, December 13, 2016 – Io-Interactive would like to invite players to feel festive today as the new Holiday Content for HITMAN is released in support of World Cancer Research Fund.

Your destination is Paris, France and your targets are Harry “Smokey” Bagnato and Marv “Slick” Gonif, a pair of professional thieves currently breaking into the Palais De Walewska. The mission, ‘Holiday Hoarders’ is new bespoke content using the Showstopper mission as a backdrop and as Agent 47, it’s your job to stop these thieves. Feel free to open up some of the presents you find as some of the content will be handy to get the job done…..and security reports a strange jingling sound in the palace, something worth looking into. There is also a holiday-appropriate way to exit the mission…!

“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 www.wcrf-uk.org/hitman”.

Holiday Hoarders will be available via a game update today for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
