Hitman is gifting us free Christmas DLC next week

Hitman will receive a free Christmas update next week in support of the World Cancer Research Fund, IO Interactive has announced.

The festive content drop will be free for all players across PS4, Xbox One and PC when it launches on December 13.

IO Interactive has reworked the Paris Location with snow, festive decorations and delightful new costumes.

Agent 47 is tasked with taking out two naughty tricksters trying to steal a bunch of presents. He’s like a bald, homicidal Santa Claus.

The entire DLC package is free, although IO Interactive is hoping you’ll donate some of the coins you find across the level to Cancer Research.

“Cancer is something that affects everyone in one way or another at some point in their lives. We’re giving away some fun, free holiday content to all Hitman players and we ask in return that if you want to donate to a great cause, please give whatever you can,” said IO studio head Hannes Seifert.

Hitman’s first season came to a close earlier this year, with a physical version to come in early 2017. IO Interactive recently confirmed it has plans to develop a second season, of which details are scarce at the moment.
