Hitman 3 reaches its first anniversary in January, but that doesn’t mean IO Interactive is halting support for the game anytime soon. The developer has revealed there is a second year of content planned for Hitman 3; Year 2 will include new maps and new storylines amongst other things. This content is due to begin in January 2022 with a more detailed reveal planned for the start of the year.
Year 2 of content will last for another 12 months and will include new maps, storylines, game modes and “ways to play. “While details on these were fairly scarce, they did detail the new Elusive Target Arcade. This will be a new way to take on Elusive Targets and will provide the “ultimate Elusive Target challenge” by changing the formula players have been used to over the last 11 months. Unlike the normal Elusive Targets, Elusive Target Arcade will be a permanent addition to the game.
The announcement trailer also gave us the briefest of glimpses at a new map, which looks to be a very expensive eco-friendly residence in the middle of a forest. There’s a very quick look at a shooting range too, although whether that is part of the same map or whether it will be linked to one of the new game modes remains to be seen.
Hitman 3 has enjoyed a lot of success since its release at the start of this year. The three games in the Hitman World of Assassination trilogy have accumulated 50 million players between them with Hitman 3 being the most successful of them all. The final act of the Seven Deadly Sins campaign is currently running in Hitman 3, bringing free and premium content with it. The Wrath Termination Escalation is available for those who purchased the Seven Deadly Sins DLC, while the Halloween-themed The Mills Reverie Escalation is available for all players. More featured contracts will arrive from the Hitman Community on November 25 bringing the total available to 70 and unlocking the Professional Screwdriver reward.
HITMAN 3 – Year 2 will begin on January 20, 2022. There will also be a major update for the game in the spring; more details on both of these are promised for the future.[Source: IO Interactive]
