Needed a little incentive to have a blast on the latest Hitman installment? Perhaps you’ve been sitting on the fence a little and waited for a price reduction? Well, wait no more, as this fantastic starter pack for the latest Hitman game gives you the chance to delve right into the world of Agent 47 and see if the game is for you, FOR FREE.

Taken from the press release:

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.

Here at GameHype, we scored the game very favorably. You can check out the review at the following link (Hitman 2 Review)

That’s not everything either (hooraay). For veterans of the game, more content is on the way. Elusive target number 4 is soon to arrive. As of March 8th gamers will have the chance to engage with “The Politician” and have one shot at taking the disgraced Dame Barbara down until March 17th.
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 funneling 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.

All progress made during the starter pack playthrough can be carried over for those of you who make the upgrade to the full version. The starter pack is live now across all platforms, Xbox One, Playstation 4, & PC. Do you plan to give Hitman 2 a play? You can’t have a better incentive to give it a go then now surely?
