TA Playlist for January 2018 is Live with Hitman

By Mark Delaney,
Happy new year assassins! From the Creed to the Agency, 2018 is picking up where we left off in 2017 with our TA Playlist event. All throughout January we'll be sharing our thoughts, opinions, game clips, and achievement solutions for IO Interactive's episodic stealth game, HITMAN.

Shave your heads and get that barcode tattoo you've always dreamed of, because it's time to go to work for the world's most elite secret society. If you're tentative to start the game, don't forget that a wealth of its content is free, though some of its offering will revert back to paid within a few days, so to maximize your free stuff, go download the Holiday Pack now!

For those looking to grab the whole game, the Game of the Year Edition is on sale for a few more days as well, marked down by as much as 33% digitally. For the purposes of Playlist, we hope our community will be playing the whole story with us, as each location is vastly different and allows for more custom contracts to be created and shared with the rest of TA, though certainly anyone is welcome to chime in even if they've only played some of the game.

Hitman released in 2016 episodically and by season's end had garnered a heap of praise. Its complete first season currently sits at an 84 on OpenCritic and IO, who recently acquired the full rights to the IP, has promised a season two is on the way. Now is a great time to check out one of 2016's best reviewed games, especially because it's still adding new content even today.

We'll see you in the forums — unless of course you're well disguised.
