Stay Inside This Christmas With December's 'Hitman 2' Updates

Hitman 2 is set to welcome a wealth of new content this month, including new Contracts, Escalations, and the next Elusive Target. Sean Bean's dying days are well and truly over. In Hitman 2, that is.

Warner Bros. and IO Interactive have issued an update, so that fans now know everything Agent 47 has in store this holiday season. The perfect Christmas present for any Hitman lover.

First up on the list, Contracts. All Featured Contracts are created by members of the community and then added to the game for all to enjoy. Featured Contracts will be chosen based on themes, and the first is Occupational Hazards, as all contracts are focused on jobs, occupations, and professions. It's live now.

The Aelwin Augment is the latest Escalation Contracts, which focus on how players adapt their skills and playstyles to various complications. This new Escalation Contract takes place on the mysterious Isle of Sgail, and it's coming 13 December - today.

A new Elusive Target, The Revolutionary, will debut on 21 December. It will arrive in Santa Fortuna for 10 days, and you'll be able to unlock the Casual Tourist (with gloves) suit if you complete it. More details on this contract will be shared in the coming weeks.

And then there's a new Escalation on 27 December, the Turms Infatuation: "The month will be wrapped up with an Escalation Contract in Santa Fortuna."

Warner and IO also revealed that, come 13 December (wait, that's right now), there'll be a Hitman Holiday Surprise: "'Stay tuned' for a time-limited, Christmas-themed surprise coming later this month." They gifted players a nifty How to Hitman tutorial, too, for anyone struggling to find their stealthy side. You can watch it above.

If you're yet to try out Hitman 2, it has had its price dramatically slashed. According to Trusted Reviews today, you can pick the third-person adventure up for just £19.99. And I thought Black Friday was over.
