“HITMAN – July Content Schedule
Welcome to July 2017 and our 16th consecutive month of delivering new content and challenges into HITMAN. This month is a bit special because it brings the final Elusive Target for Season One. On top of that, we have a new Escalation Contract in Sapienza, a fresh (and super-sized) batch of Featured Contracts and the July game update.
The first content to arrive on 7th July is this month’s Escalation Contract; The Hamartia Compulsion.
– This Escalation Contract is the 12th that we have released for Sapienza and challenges you with 5 different stages. Expect three different targets, a sticky pistol complication and a few other surprises.
Once you have completed all 5 stages, earned the corresponding challenge and Mastery XP, we’ve lined up a bumper selection of Featured Contracts for July.
Contracts Mode allows you to create your own contracts and share them with friends, adding to the already insane replay-ability offered across all locations. 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.
15 new Featured Contracts will be added to the game on 7th July and this week’s featured contract creators are… Quinez, Spodeq, AGENT4T7, BernardoOne, Euler 13, Gule, Pagan, GKPunk, Urben, Ed ll3, Niobium, immadummee, Silverballer, SnakeGun and Mendietinha.
Our July content will be released over a few different dates. The final Elusive Target for Season One will arrive later in the month and will be on the Marrakesh Bonus mission; A House Built on Sand. As the contract is in Marrakesh, you’ll unlock the Summer Suit with Gloves if this is the first ET you complete in Marrakesh. Equally, if you earn your first SA rating for this ET, you’ll unlock the Terminus Suit. Check the challenges in-game to see what suits you can still unlock through Elusive Targets, all depending on how many of the previous Elusive Targets you’ve completed.
We are also planning a game update for this month. We’ll have details to share and full release notes closer to when we’re releasing it.
See you for some new challenges in the August Content Schedule.
It seems that since Season One of HITMAN DLC is ending, Season Two may be available for players soon enough. In their update post on going independent, Io Interactive A/S said that they were preparing to give players more updates on new content coming to HITMAN, so a possibility of a Season Two sooner isn’t out of the question.
Despite worries about what will happen to the HITMAN franchise along with the fact that Io Interactive A/S had laid off employees after Square Enix dropped them (according to Polygon), it seems that they will be getting along better than ever.
There is no new information on when Season 2 will start or when the new game update will come out (and what will be in it).
I’m glad that Io Interactive A/S seems to be coming back stronger after their publicized break-up with Square Enix and have gotten back on track when it comes to new content. I have faith that Io Interactive will continue to improve and update HITMAN and will give fans new content to look forward to.
