Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today announced that the HITMAN 2 – Starter Pack is available now for free, allowing all players to experience the full Hawke’s Bay (New Zealand) location along with the opening campaign mission “Nightcall” and the many challenges and unlocks within that environment.
Set against the backdrop of Hawke’s Bay’s moonlit beaches and roaring waves, gamers can begin their journey into the World of Assassination as Agent 47 tries to infiltrate a luxurious oceanside property. All progression earned from playing this location will carry over into the full game.
Additionally, Elusive Target No. 4, entitled “The Politician”, will be available beginning March 8th and end on March 17th within the Hawke’s Bay location, therefore owners of HITMAN 2 and players who downloaded the Free Starter Pack can participate in the limited, one-time opportunity to take out Dame Barbara Elizabeth Keating (a.k.a. “The Politician”).
Dame Barbara is a disgraced former New Zealand Minister of Trade and Foreign affairs who was forced to resign after the discovery of her charity funnelling funds to her offshore interests. After shifting the blame to the charity’s director and wiping her hands clean, Dame Barbara is currently building back her reputation to restore her standing, and she is believed to be working with a body double to protect herself at public events. Players will have 10 days to complete the mission.
