We already knew that Hitman 3 got more content soon, but it turns out that developer IO Interactive already has a full list of plans for February. The studio will release new content every week throughout the month, according to a content plan published on Thursday.
Most of the new content will focus on escalation missions, which are variations on the missions already in the game. Escalation missions provide new parameters for existing missions by doing things like changing goals or getting players to eliminate them in very specific ways.
In this month̵
February’s new content also includes two selected contracts created by MinnMax (Dubai) and KindaFunny (Dartmoor). An update on February 23 will give players who own the Deluxe Edition of the game new items to complete both the Mendoza and Carpathian Mountains missions in two Deluxe Escalations.
IO also plans to release a game update that day, but the studio did not explain what would be in it. According to IO’s blog post, the update will include bug fixes and a few tweaks to the game, and it will prepare players for something called “The Initiation Protocol.” Although this is not much to continue, the IO said it would provide more information about the update closer to the actual release date.
Finally, IO will end the month with new Elusive Targets on the Sapienza map from the original Assassin, which will run from February 26 to March 8. The game’s evasive goals and escalation missions will be free for all players who own the game – and Assassin (2016) in the case of Sapienza – while the Deluxe content will only be available to players who own the Deluxe Edition of Hitman 3.
