The July Roadmap for HITMAN 2 has arrived with a lot of new content on the horizon for all players!
We’ve got hot Challenge Packs, Featured Contracts, a Legacy Elusive Target, Escalation Contracts and more! All wrapped in this month’s theme “Jungle Music” (previously known as ‘Jungle Summer’)
After all that music, you’ll need a silent retreat, therefore we’re also stepping a bit out of the theme this month and going to one of the coldest and harshest environments on the planet far away from music and jungle summer vibes on July 30th with the release of The Prison; a new Sniper Assassin map that is coming to all owners of the HITMAN 2 Expansion Pass.
Read the full blog post for more details and get a great visual summary with our very own Community Developer, Clemens, in the July Roadmap Trailer:
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.
You’ll need to own the Legacy Pack to play this Elusive Target, so make sure you download it if you haven’t already!
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!
High risk comes with a high reward. When completing this hot escalation, you’ll unlock the dashing and cool, Hot Summer Suit.
