Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive announced that Hitman 2 Starter Pack is now available for free. It allows you to experience the inaugural campaign mission, "Nightcall", and all the challenges and functionalities connected to it.
The action takes place between the moonlit beaches and the roaring waves of Hawke's Bay, in New Zealand where players can begin their adventure in the World of Assassins by impersonating Agent 47. All progress in the Initial Package will be transferred to the full version of the game.
In addition, the Elusive Target No. 4 named The Politician will be available from March 8th to 17th in Hawke's Bay itself, so both the owners of Hitman 2 and those who have downloaded the Free Initial Package will be able to participate on this unique and limited occasion to eliminate Dame Barbara Elizabeth Keating (aka "The Politician"). Dame Barbara is a former minister of trade and foreign affairs of New Zealand who fell into disgrace and was forced to resign when it was discovered that her charitable organization channeled funds to her offshore interests. After blaming the director of the organization and eliminating the evidence against him, Dame Barbara is re-establishing her reputation to regain her lost position, and public events are believed to use a double to protect herself. Players will have 10 days to complete the mission.
Hitman 2 is now available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, the family of Xbox One devices (including Xbox One X) and PC.
