Hitman, as a series, has come along pretty damn well, hasn't it? Following the original news that Hitman was going to be an episodic title and the great success that was, to the full-fledge excellent title that is Hitman 2, IO Interactive and the Hitman franchise is back to form.

Agent 47 has always been a generous fellow, lending his favourite piano wire to the necks of many friends, sometimes giving people a bit of a surprise ingredient in their food and never one to shy away from lending people a few grains of copper or lead - rarely does he ask for them back! Now it's time for IO Interactive and Agent 47 to give you a present in a whole host of content over the Christmas season.

Starting tomorrow, the 5th of December, a roadmap of free content for Hitman 2, bringing back the Snow Festival and Holiday Hoarders seasonal events and letting you win a permanent Santa suit for yourself. Let's be honest, we all know the ideal way for 47 to sneak into any mission is through the use of an inconspicuous bright red costume with a big white beard.

The exact list of the content in the Hitman 2 December updates, what they are and when they're released are as follows:

  • The Truman Convention Escalation Contract in Santa Fortuna (Colombia) – Available Dec. 5
