IO Interactive has announced today on their blog that this month will see a slew of new Hitman content hit the game. The company also teased a big announcement for the game later this month, though it will not be Season 2 of the game.

Arriving on October 13, Hitman will see a batch of 10 new featured contracts hit the game, as well as the “Master Scarecrow Challenge Pack,” which will allow players to unlock a new item if they complete all five of the new challenges.

Later on in the month, 10 player-curated featured contracts will hit the game, with the only caveat being that a player will be the one curating the list. More on the content below:

Arriving October 13th

  • 10 new Featured Contracts
You create Contracts and we feature the interesting, clever or creative ones. There is no perfect formula to explain how we select the contracts, but they have caught our attention for one reason or another. Got something you think is worth featuring? Join the conversation on Hitman Forum.
  • Master Scarecrow Challenge Pack
 Colorado is the only location yet to have an added Challenge Pack. That ends this month with the release of The Master Scarecrow Challenge Pack. Look forward to 5 new challenges, each with a high amount of location mastery; a great way to top out your mastery and collect any remaining unlocks. Completing all of the challenges will unlock a new item for 47 to use in all locations. We’ll reveal more about this Challenge Pack and the new item next week.

 Arriving Later in October

Our next batch of 10 player-curated Featured Contracts arrives later in the month. These contracts 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.

The third curator to be in the spotlight is Hatch. He’s a British speedrunner who plays on PS4 in search of unique routes on fun contracts. You’ll get to know him even 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.

Coming October 24, IO promises an announcement for the game that will bring with it new content. While they have said this isn’t “Season 2” of the game, it is still new Hitman, which is always good.

Hitman is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.
