Hitman 2's New Snow Festival Mission Takes Players Back to Hokkaido

Chill out Agent 47.

Hitman 2 is still in holiday mode, and you can celebrate the winter season in beautiful Hokkaido thanks to a new DLC add-on. Access to the refreshed map is currently available for Expansion Pass owners and a free trial version of Hokkaido will be soon available for everyone else.

Assassins now have access to a new mission in the Hokkaido, Japan map from Hitman Season 1. The map is only available for players who own either the first season of Hitman or purchased the Hitman Legacy Pack. But for a limited time, the map will be accessible via a free trial. Your progress in the map will carry over if you choose to purchase the Legacy Pack.

The Hokkaido map has been given an update to coincide with the limited-time Snow Festival seasonal event, sporting some new festive lights. The target is factory owner Dmitri Fedorov, and Agent 47 has access to two new items to take him out with: the Ice Pick and Snow Festival Suit. Unlock them during the event, and they're yours to keep.

Alongside the new Hokkaido map mission is the Winter Sports Pack for Hitman 2, which adds five new items: the Winter Sports Suit, Arctic Tool Box, Quickdraw Rope, Climbing Piton, and a Snowball. This DLC Sports Pack is only available for Expansion Pass owners.

The Expansion Pass is available for $39.99 and includes two parts. The full expansion includes more weapons, more locations, and a new sniper map that have yet to release.

IO Interactive recently released HD versions of Blood Money and Absolution in case you need even more Agent 47 goodness in your life. Be sure to check out our Hitman 2 review and Hitman 2 guide for the latest news, trailers, walkthroughs and more.
