'Hitman 2' (ALL) July Roadmap Reveals Next Map, Challenge Pack And More

by Rainier on July 3, 2019 @ 9:05 a.m. PDT

Hitman 2 will see players perform contract hits on powerful, high-profile targets in exotic locations around the world.

Featuring entirely new hyper-detailed sandboxes full of living, breathing environments to explore, Hitman 2 offers players the freedom to plan the ultimate assassination utilizing an assortment of tools, weapons, disguises and a variety of stealth techniques to creatively trigger their own unique chain of events.

Hitman 2 takes players on a global adventure across a mix of bustling international locations, including a vibrant Miami setting with the colorful ambience of an in-progress motorsport race bringing a new backdrop to the series. From sun-drenched streets to dark and dangerous rainforests, each intricate location provides multiple paths to discover and unparalleled game depth.

Continuing the ultimate spy thriller story, Hitman 2 allows players to take on the role of the masterful Agent 47 and embark on a mission to hunt the elusive Shadow Client and unravel his militia once and for all. However, when 47 learns the hidden truth about his past, nothing will ever be the same.

Hitman 2 introduces new ways to play with the Sniper Assassin mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series for the first time, allowing two players to work together online to take down their targets. Sniper Assassin can also be enjoyed in a single player mode for those who want to play as Agent 47.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today released the Hitman 2 July 2019 content roadmap providing a detailed look at the robust lineup of downloadable content (DLC) and free updates in store for players throughout the month.

As part of this content rollout, the next Sniper Assassin map, ‘The Prison,’ will be available on July 30 for all Hitman 2 Expansion Pass owners and will transport players to the frigid tundra of Siberia where they can unlock the Druzhina 34 ICA Arctic sniper rifle.

Additionally, players can look forward to a range of free live content available for all Hitman 2 owners, including a new challenge pack, featured contracts, escalations, outfits and more.

July 4 / Escalation Contract

It’s time to stop the music, 47 style, in the Babayeva Dissonance.

In this Escalation, you’ll have to take care of the musicians and stop the music. There are 3 stages, and each one requires your particular skill sets. All from precision shooting, to a piece of certain knowledge about explosives.

And, please be gentle with the cellist.

July 11 / Challenge Pack

The “I’m with the Band” Challenge Pack is your perfect opportunity to join the famous Santa Fortuna band.

We’ve added five new band-related challenges to Santa Fortuna, and you’ll need to figure out the best way for success  – with your one hit wonder, to complete them and earn the unlock.

When you’re successful, you’ll get rewarded with something all band members should have in their life. Their very own Violin.

July 18 / Featured Contracts

Inspired by this month’s content theme of Jungle Music, we’re looking for Featured Contract Submissions that fit the theme of ‘TONE DEATH’.

Our themes for Featured Contracts are purposefully open-ended to make sure that the talented Contract creators in the community are free to interpret them in many ways, ensuring some fun and varied contracts.

Head on over to the dedicated Featured Contracts Submission Thread to submit your contracts for this month’s theme. Submissions close at 9 am CEST on July 15, so get your submissions in before then!

July 19 / Legacy Elusive Target

The notorious Badboy is back!

The Badboy Legacy Elusive target is in Sapienza on July 19, for 10 days. So be sure to take care of this particular musician before that.

Good Luck.

July 25 / Escalation Contract

The Calvino Cacophony Escalation is a hot summer celebration like never before.

You’ll have to become the menace of Santa Fortuna and you’ll definitely going to blow stuff up. But be careful – playing with explosives is a dangerous game!
