Hitman 3 is getting a new expansion called Seven Deadly Sins. The paid update will release in seven parts, with each content pack representing a different sin.
The expansion is the first paid update for Hitman 3 since it launched in January. IO Interactive has previously rolled out free content drops for the game. Seven Deadly Sins is a more robust DLC that brings new contracts and items to the game.
The DLC will release in seven parts. Each piece of content starts a “season” that represents a different sin. Each season will last between four and six weeks, which means that the game will get regular updates through 2021. Players can either buy individual chapters for $5 each or the entire collection for $30.
The first installment is Chapter 1: Greed, which launches on March 30. The update takes players back to Dubai to complete the new Greed Enumeration Escalation contract. The package features new golden items, including the Rapacious Suit, Devil’s Cane, and Greedy Little Coin. IO says the update features “new gameplay mechanics” built around the concept of greed.
While this is the game’s first paid update, Hitman 3 will continue to get free content. IO is making a slight change to how it rolls out that content by releasing free updates within the new season time frames. The studio will release a clearer road map of what’s coming to the during its Season of Greed in early April.
IO confirmed that new content is on the way soon and reaffirmed that elusive targets are on the way, as are new seasonal events. In addition to the Berlin Egg Hunt, IO says that some old events from Hitman and Hitman 2 are coming to the game soon.
