Developers lay down a roadmap for Hitman 3

In a video statement, Hitman’s community developer Clemens Koch laid out the plans for February. He stated that the teams are diligently working on free DLC content that will roll out on a routine basis. Starting with this month, players will see a wide range of new and exciting contracts and challenges being introduced.

Owners of Hitman 3 Deluxe Edition will receive two amazing escalations coming their way. The first one will be Proloff Parable, where Agent 47 will take on a horde of enemies on a train. He is only going to have a sniper rifle and a katana sword on him for this. This entire event will be a race against time, as you take on each objective while you make your way through waves of enemies.

The second escalation will see you taking up the role of a tech-savvy guru. This interesting challenge will revolve around stealth, and the only way to kill your enemies is via the influence of poison. This is not it, there is more amazing content in the pipelines that will be rolled out in the future soon.

Third-party creator KINDAFUNNY has worked out a set of escalation contracts that will take you to Dartmoor. This one promises action, mayhem, and chaos like a movie. Lastly, Sapienza is also going to receive a new challenging contract called the ‘Deceivers’ that involves a doppelganger of your original target.

The developer also stated that this is only the beginning, and the studio is looking forward to content drops. The gaming studio plans to release more free DLC content in the upcoming months as well.
