Having recovered its development costs in under a week, Hitman 3 might be Agent 47's last assignment for now. IO Interactive is moving onto Project 007, but it has just given us further news on Hitman 3's post-launch support.
Now, Agent 47's had some interesting missions in his time, but a "seven deadly sins" themed content isn't quite what we ever expected to hear. Beginning on March 30th, Act 1 kicks off with Greed, and IO Interactive offered further details on its official website, confirming:
We’re excited to announce HITMAN 3: Seven Deadly Sins, a new 7-part premium expansion for HITMAN 3 that takes players deep into the mind of Agent 47. Featuring new gameplay opportunities, visually distinct contracts and unique sin-themed rewards, HITMAN 3: Seven Deadly Sins will subvert expectations and challenge players to resist each of the seven sins.
HITMAN 3: Seven Deadly Sins will be released over time through seven unique content packs. Each of the seven packs are focused on a different sin and include a visually distinct contract, sin-themed unlockable suit and at least one sin-themed item that can be used across the World of Assassination. Some items may also have unique properties to remind you of the sin they are inspired by…The first content pack will be available on 30 March and will invite players back to Dubai, where coins are overflowing and new gameplay mechanics will tempt your own personal greed.
The focus of Act 1: Greed is a new Escalation called The Greed Enumeration, which allows you to carry certain items over between each of the three stages. Feeling greedy? Prove it! As well as the new Escalation, Act 1: Greed will also includes the unlockable Rapacious Suit and two sin-themed items; the Greedy Little Coin and The Devil’s Cane.
Each of these Sin-based content packs will cost 4.99 / £4.99 / €4.99. If you'd prefer to buy all seven as a bundle, the Seven Deadly Sins Collection comes in slightly cheaper altogether at $29.99 / £29.99 / €29.99.
If you're not taken by this, then fear not. IO Interactive confirms that it will still be adding new "live content", including Escalations, Featured Contracts, and Elusive Targets. Monthly roadmaps are being renamed "Seasons of Sin", but unlike the new content packs, these missions remain completely free.
