A new update is now available for Hitman 2 that introduces the first piece of expansion pass content, kicks off a new seasonal event, and more.
Following the update, the Snow Festival is now live in Hokkaido. The Snow Festival runs until February 12th and introduces new winter-themed items and the Snow Master Challenge Pack. Players who complete this pack can unlock the Ice Pick and the Snow Festival Suit.
Also available now for owners of the game’s expansion pass is the Winter Sports Pack. This pack includes the Winter Sports Suit and the following four items for players to use in all of the game’s locations:
- Snowball: A ball made of snow. Can be thrown at anyone to really annoy them.
- Piton: Metal spike used for climbing. Sharp enough to use as a lethal weapon.
- Quickdraw: Climbing gear which can double as a fiber wire in tight situations.
- Arctic Tool Box: A toolbox for arctic climate. Can be used to hide illegal items.
Developer IO Interactive notes that the Winter Sports Pack is exclusive to the expansion pass and is not currently available to purchase individually.
Other changes include the option to adjust interaction prompt size, a new reward for completing 15 featured Contracts, and plenty of bug fixes. Read more about the update here.
Finally, IO Interactive announced that the entire Hokkaido Legacy Location (including the Snow Festival) can be downloaded for free on all platforms until February 12th. All progress made during this free trial can be carried over to the full game.
Hitman 2 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
