More HITMAN content is on the horizon in August and for the first-time, we’re introducing player-curated Featured Contracts into the live content schedule.
As the first month in quite some time without an Elusive Target (the last ET-less month was April ’16 for anyone who’s counting!), there is a different feel to the content that we’re revealing this month – but there’s still plenty of it!
The first content will land on August 11th: 10 new Featured Contracts. Every month, we pick out the best of the Contracts that have been submitted, shared with us or that we’ve seen discussed among our players. We choose the contracts as a batch to make sure we include a variety of locations, varying numbers of targets, inventive storytelling and anything else that we think is interesting.
Also on August 11th, we’ll release a new Challenge Pack. This will be the sixth one released so far and is called ‘The Art of Revenge’. Five new challenges will be added to the game and, as with all previous Challenge Packs, the location mastery you can earn by completing those challenges is higher than the regular challenges. That makes them a great way to earn any remaining mastery unlocks you need. The five challenges will be added to Hokkaido and you’ll need to complete all of the challenges to unlock the unique item, which we will reveal next week. After all, revenge is never a straight line…
Later in August, we’ll also publish our first-ever player-curated Featured Contracts. These contracts will function in the same way to the Featured Contracts that you’ve come to know and love in the game, with one big twist: one of our players will curate the list. These player-curated contracts will offer a fresh twist to the style of contracts that will be featured in the game and give all players a chance to get an insight into how some of the prominent members of the Hitman community play the game.
The very first curator to be in the spotlight is Mendietinha. He’s a Brazilian streamer who lives for discovering new routes in contracts and the ultimate rekky. If you don’t already watch his almost-daily Twitch streams, you’ll get to know him better later in the month when his curated contracts go live in the game and we publish a blog post right here with some insights into his choices.
Finally, there is no game update in the pipeline for this month but we are working towards future game updates.
Looking ahead, the September Content Schedule will be similar to this one, with a focus on Contracts Mode and a new Challenge Pack. That relative calm will give us time to prepare for some exciting announcements.
