Hitman


 

IO Interactive has released the Starter Pack for Hitman 2, which offers the game’s first mission and location for free.

The Starter Pack grants access to the full Hawke’s Bay (New Zealand) location, including all of its related challenges and unlocks, as well as the opening campaign mission called “Nightcall.” The mission tasks Agent 47 with infiltrating a luxurious oceanside property. All progress made in the Starter Pack can be carried over to the full game.

The developer also announced that the game’s fourth Elusive Target, The Politician, will arrive in the game on March 8th at the Hawke’s Bay location. This means that Starter Pack owners will be able to hunt down and take out Dame Barbara Elizabeth Keating.

“Dame Barbara is a disgraced former New Zealand Minister of Trade and Foreign affairs who was forced to resign after the discovery of her charity funneling funds to her offshore interests,” IO Interactive explains. “After shifting the blame to the charity’s director and wiping her hands clean, Dame Barbara is currently building back her reputation to restore her standing, and she is believed to be working with a body double to protect herself at public events.”

Hitman 2 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
