Halloween content has landed for Hitman 2, with some new escalations and rewards during October...

Finally got around to playing Haven Island last night, and returned again this morning to finish off all the Mission Stories. Now I just need to complete it on Master difficulty, reach Mastery Level 20 and figure out what the hidden trophies are.

Which I'll be happy to do, as I think this might be the greatest Hitman level yet, if not a definite top five. It's so atmospheric; I love the storm that rolls in whenever you've got a single target remaining and sure, three targets is a bit much, but the island is so well-constructed that it never feels laborious taking them all out to complete a run. There's so much detail, so many great gags and layers, reflected in the fact that the New York bank only came with Mastery Level 15 and yet here, it's a full 20. I'm gonna have a blast wandering around, discovering everything it has to offer.

First, I'll check out the two new Special Assignments in Miami and Whittleton Creek, as I really enjoyed the last two. I also completed the Elusive Target mere hours before she disappeared (after wandering around for ages, I restarted out of frustration and found her almost immediately; after some quick recon, I restarted a second time and got a Silent Assassin rating with less than three minutes on the clock).

It's good to be back!

@RogerRoger if you see black wooden skulls hidden throughout the map, shoot them they are required for The Pleasure trophy/achievement If I remember 12 to 14 of them. Look carefully. Btw you will need sniper rifle for this...

@LaJettatura Thanks for the tip! Those two hidden trophies are the only ones I have left. After quite a few restarts last night, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there's a Silent Assassin, Suit Only run which clocks in at under six minutes. Very satisfying!

I also strangled one of the targets with his weights in the gym. Lovely little call-back to Blood Money.

Debating the season pass which is currently on sale. Can anyone tell me how many new sniper missions are in it? It's only a small part of the game but I've had a ton of fun and spent hours on the Himmelstein mission.

@Arugula There have been two additional Sniper Assassin maps since launch. The first, Singapore, might be free for everybody (its trophies are included in the base game's list, not the separate Season Pass list) but the second, Siberia, is definitely exclusive DLC for those who pay.

Singapore isn't quite as good as Himmelstein, but Siberia is an absolute riot... but that's just me.

You'll also gain access to the New York and Haven Island levels, which are fantastic, as well as four short-but-sweet Special Assignments and a bunch of miscellaneous items.

@RogerRoger That's great, thank you! $16 is worth it for the enjoyment I'll get out of the sniper maps alone. It's an easy decision when you know you already enjoy the game, I was just curious about the sniping elements because that's the deal, uh seal... er.

Arugula

RogerRoger

@Arugula ...as opposed to a seal dealer? I'm sure PETA would have something to say about that.

Sixteen bucks is definitely a better price for it, absolutely. Hope you enjoy!

The Halloween sale has the season pass $2 cheaper after I paid $16 last week. I hate it when stuff like that happens! Definite bargain at $14!

@Arugula Argh! The danger of so many PSN sales, I guess!

Another round of Halloween content dropped last night.

47 returns to a haunted Hawkes Bay to give Orson some scares. New suit and batman themed shuriken are a reward for this round.
Overall good little content drop, perfect for a 30 minute time waster.
Happy Halloween...

@LaJettatura No, I've been playing other things, alas. But thank you for the heads-up about the Halloween content, which I'm gonna make time for today, as I'm kinda between games at the moment (or at least, playing something I don't mind leaving for a day or two). I love the Hawke's Bay environment so am really excited to see what they've done with it!

Does anyone have information if there will be anymore updates to the game with new content? I think we are in the clear except for elusive and legacy targets. I ask because after 100% achievements/trophies I want to uninstall and be done. See you in Hitman 3 Agent 47...

LaJettatura

RogerRoger

@LaJettatura As far as the Expansion Pass is concerned, everything we'd been promised has now been fulfilled, yes. We've had the two main missions to New York and Haven Island, the two Sniper Assassin maps (Singapore and Siberia) and the Special Assignments.

There's a chance we'll get more special, seasonal events (Santa 47 will likely be back at Christmas, for example) and if anything, a couple more Special Assignments outside of the Expansion Pass, but I doubt we'll see anything like an entirely new level now. IO have confirmed that they're working on Hitman 3, which will likely bring all three games under one big umbrella on the next generation of consoles.

@RogerRoger Thanks for the update I only have seen the October roadmap and all dlc has been released so far so it looks like no more content, but was not sure...

@LaJettatura They've unveiled the November road map. There's plenty of escalations and challenge packs and stuff along with a legacy elusive target, but no major new things.

I suspect December could have some festive goodies and maybe some minor surprises, but I doubt there'll be any more major new features added to Hitman 2.
