Hitman 2 gets festive with the free 'Holiday Hoarders' pack

Warner Bros. released Hitman 2 on Xbox One and other platforms on November 13, 2018. In order to become the perfect assassin, you have to blend into the crowd, exploit the environment, and trick numerous personalities.

Today, the game received the free "Holiday Hoarders" pack which not only gives you access to some free content, but also the elusive "Santa 47" suit. Agent 47 already stands out of the crowd with his perfectly-shaved head and giant barcode tattoo, but if you needed to draw more attention to yourself, you can always put on a conspicuous Santa Clause outfit. You'll have to complete a few challenges to unlock it though. The trailer provides more details on what to expect.

In Hitman 2, Agent 47 embarks on a mission to hunt the elusive "Shadow Client" and unravel his militia once and for all. However, when he learns the hidden truth about his past, nothing will ever be the same. The game also introduces new ways to play with the "Sniper Assassin" mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series.

In our review, we said, "IO Interactive set out to perfect the assassination sandbox with Hitman 2. Though the studio fell short, Hitman 2 is a commendable stealth experience that fans of the series shouldn't miss out on. Its future now rests in whether or not its Ghost Mode and celebrity elusive targets can hold people's attention."
