Back in July, we were having bets as to whether IO Interactive would eventually give away the entirety of HITMAN
for free. They'd included "Episode One: Paris
" with the free "Holiday Pack" in December 2017, and then "Episode Two: Sapienza
" had been part of the "Spring Pack
" in March. "Episode Three: Marrakesh
", of course, was included in July's "Summer Pack
". Well, we're almost along the right lines. The arrival of today's "Halloween Pack" does indeed herald another free episode from the game, but we've skipped ahead; "Episode Five: Colorado
" is where players are heading this time.
A once placid farm compound has been converted into a militia training camp and base of operations, under the watchful gaze of a nearby scarecrow. Legend tells the tale, that whoever wears it's garments, and fulfills it's bell clanging desires, gains hellish flames that consume their enemies. Yet only those who wield the right tools, can obtain it.
Besides unlocking the secrets of the scarecrow, there are 4 prominent militia members that must be eliminated, each with their own specialties.
Like the previous free packs, players will get access to the Campaign missions for Episode Five, as well as the Escalation Contracts, over 80 Challenges, "20 levels of location mastery", and everything that can be found in the first location in the game, ICA Facility.
The "Halloween Pack" states that "game access lasts for the Halloween Pack period, but your saved progress will transfer to the full game, if purchased". However, upon the removal of the previous "Summer Pack", which had similar wording, some players reported they were still able to access and play "Episode 3". There's every chance that players can continue to access "Episode 5" after the "Halloween Pack" has been removed from the Store, but if you plan on making use of this DLC pack, I would earn all of the "Episode 5's" achievements as soon as possible just to make sure. We don't yet know when the pack will be removed from the Microsoft Store.
