We’re just a week and a half away from Halloween and you can expect a lot of games to release updates with spooky elements. The latest to announce its intention to do so is Hitman 2 from IO Interactive. Fans of the stealth game are used to regular updates featuring new targets, locations, outfits, and weapons. It makes sense then for the game to get a Halloween-themed update. To show off this update, the Danish developer has released a trailer that has a full-on horror movie vibe and gives us a taste of what we can expect. You can check out the video below –
It is interesting how some cosmetic items and judicious video editing can make Hitman 2 look like a horror movie. Wearing the pumpkin-head does make Agent 47 look like a serial killer. Though, I suppose that is technically what he is as his victim list is longer than your arm. Add to this the candle-lit pumpkins, crows, and tombstones and you have a proper Halloween-themed experience. And if you complete this latest Escalation Contract you will unlock the Tactical Wetsuit and Batshurikens.
Hitman 2 is available now. If you don’t already own the game, you can download the starter pack for free now. The Halloween update will be available to download tomorrow for both owners of the full game and the starter pack.
