HITMAN 2 Plans New Content for the Rest of 2019

By Rebecca Smith, 10 days ago
Last week, we learned about the content coming to HITMAN 2 throughout the rest of April. The list included a new Legacy Elusive Target, The Prince, who becomes available today, as well as a new Featured Contract, another Ghost Mode location, an Escalation contract, and a game update. However, that won't be the end of the content by any means. IO Interactive has now revealed all of the major content drops and additions they plan to make throughout the rest of the year.

2019 Roadmap

The theme throughout the rest of the season will be the Spring Break. As well as more weekly content, players can look forward to the chance to unlock the Flamingo Costume and the El Matador weapon. There will also be more items, emotes, and a new Ghost Mode location in the form of Santa Fortuna.

The content continues into summer with a new theme of Jungle Summer. The Bank will be introduced as a new location for all players, as well as two new Special Assignments — "Embrace of the Serpent" and "Illusions of Grandeur".

In the fall, there will be exclusive content for players who own the Gold Edition of the game or the Expansion Pass. The Prison will be introduced as a new Sniper Map, and The Resort will be added as a new location. There will also be two new Special Assignments, although IO Interactive is keeping quite tight-lipped on those for now. However, players who only own the standard edition of the game will not miss out as there will be free content drops too. The first theme of the season will be The Rivals before that is usurped by a Halloween theme. There will be a new outfit to unlock, and the Antique Knife, while Mumbai will be added as a new Ghost Mode location.

In the meantime, Father Adalrico Candelaria (otherwise known as The Prince) has returned to Sapienza today as the latest Legacy Elusive Target. He's a strong contender to be the next Pope, but research has discovered potential links between him and the Pinochet regime of the 1970s and 80s. He's on tour at the moment and comes with several securtiy personnel, but Agent 47 isn't going to let that stop him. As usual, you have just one chance and a limited amount of time to complete your assignment.

As soon as we hear more details on any of the above content, we'll be sure to let you know.

We've got the full list of HITMAN 2 achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
