Fire your confetti cannons and set off the fireworks! The HITMAN 2 November Roadmap is a celebration of HITMAN 2’s One Year anniversary and we’re bringing more live content in a single month than we ever have before!
A ton of content drops are coming your way this month, with every week having at least two content drops and some weeks having four drops! We’re talking a total of 10 Featured Contracts, 8 Escalation Contracts, 6 Challenge Packs, 5 item unlocks, 2 suit unlocks and a Legacy Elusive Target!
As well as our November content, we’re also taking the time to reflect on how we’ve released something into the game every single week over the last twelve months – ranging from Hollywood actor Elusive Targets to Homing Briefcase Challenge Packs and everything in between.
We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved so far with HITMAN 2 over the last 12 months and we’re already looking at what’s to come next for the Hitman franchise – but we’ve still got a lot we want to do with HITMAN 2 before then, starting with a bumper roadmap of content!
November 7 / Legacy Escalations
Two much-loved Legacy Escalations kick off November. The Teague Temptation in Paris requires Fall Accidents, no pacifications and no disguise changes in the latter stages. Meanwhile, The Bahadur Dexterity is about battle axes, the headmaster and stealing from a safe. Remember, Legacy Escalations each have 5 stages. Good luck!
November 7 / Challenge Pack
Adding to the content drop on November 7 is a new Challenge Pack for Whittleton Creek. The Breaking and Entering Challenge Pack will ultimately reward the ICA Titanium Crowbar, a unique visual variant of the regular crowbar that can be selected as part of your loadout.
(This Challenge Pack was previously known as ‘The Great Heist’ – and you might still see it called that on some of the roadmap images. Unfortunately, rumour has it that someone broke, entered and stole the original name from us. You might say it was a great heist. Maybe not)
November 14 / Escalation Contract
Three drops are inbound on November 14. First, The Montague Audacity in Santa Fortuna.
November 14 / Featured Contracts
We’re celebrating special occasions and want to invite everyone to the party – but only ten of you will get that invitation rubber stamped!
Want to see your Contract in HITMAN 2 for all players to try? Head on over to the dedicated Featured Contracts Submission Thread to submit your contracts. Submissions close at 9 am CET on November 11, so get your submissions in before then!
November 14 / Legacy Challenge Packs
Two Legacy Challenge Packs and two unlocks to add to your inventory round off this week. That’s right, November 14 will have a total of four content drops.
November 19 / Legacy Escalations
November 19 ‘only’ bring three drops (we did tell you it was a bumper celebration edition!) and we start with two Legacy Escalations – this time in Sapienza and Bangkok.
November 19 / Challenge Pack
World famous treasure hunter,
Nathan Blake Nathaniel is the focus of the Blake’s Endeavour Challenge Pack. Complete all challenges and unlock the Arkian Tuxedo for use in all locations.
November 19 / Legacy Challenge Packs
Two more Legacy Challenge Packs and two more unlocks – each for very different playing styles. Become the Plumber’s Apprentice to unlock the Claw Hammer or become a Master Sniper to become the Jaeger 7 Covert – or become the Master Plumber’s Sniper Apprentice to unlock both. It’s your call.
November 22 / Legacy Elusive Target
The Fixer has stumbled back into Marrakesh once more – and let’s be clear about this; he’s a contentious man. During HITMAN 1, when he first debuted, this was the Elusive Target with the lowest success rate – all because of ‘the diamonds’.
During this contract, 47 must “retrieve diamonds” as one of the objectives – and if you subdue or kill any of the characters involved in the diamond exchange before the exchange can happen, the contract will fail permanently because 47 will then not be able to retrieve them. We strongly advise that you approach this contract with extreme caution and read the briefing and target intel before proceeding.
November 28 / Escalation
Get in, get out, keep the change. That’s good advice for the McCallister Ransack in Whittleton Creek. Over three stages, this Escalation will ramp up the challenge.
November 28 / Escalation
Briefcase theft like you’ve never experienced before. The Quimby Quandry tasks you with target elimination and briefcase theft in an eventually complicated way.
November 28 / Escalation
We round off a bumper month of HITMAN 2 celebrations with the Bartholomew Hornswoggle Escalation – and the unlockable Buccaneer suit to fulfill all of your swashbuckling needs.
November 19 / Game Update
On November 19th, we’ll release our November Update and you can expect more improvements, tweaks and fixes to HITMAN 2.
After 13 months of full-time support and content for HITMAN 2 – at no additional cost (besides what we added through the Expansion Pass), we’re now at a place where we are looking increasingly to the future. In real terms, we’re moving more and more of the HITMAN 2 team to join the next Hitman game, which is well underway.
This means that we’re expecting the November Update to bring the final major patch and set of Release Notes for HITMAN 2, whilst December will round out the year with the remaining new content drops for the game, including Escalations and an Elusive Target – as well as the permanent return of some Seasonal Content.
Our 2020 plans for HITMAN 2 live content will focus on continuing to add Featured Contracts as well as introduce Community-curated Contracts into the game. On top of that, we are also planning a re-activation of HITMAN 2 Elusive Targets, giving players another chance to earn any attached rewards and experience the Elusive Target missions that you might have missed the first time around.
We’ll talk more about this and take your questions on Episode #9 of IOI Monthly when the IOI Community Team will be back in front of the cameras for another preview of upcoming content.
