The DLC series is split into seven parts, and the first one will launch in a couple of days.
IO Interactive announced that Hitman III‘s expansion will consist of seven parts, and the first one, Act I: Greed, will launch on March 30. Let’s see what the Danes have to say about it: „Featuring new gameplay opportunities, visually distinct contracts and unique sin-themed rewards, Hitman III: Seven Deadly Sins will subvert expectations and challenge players to resist each of the seven sins. Hitman III: Seven Deadly Sins will be released over time through seven unique content packs. Each of the seven packs is focused on a different sin and include a visually distinct contract, sin-themed unlockable suit and at least one sin-themed item that can be used across the World of Assassination. Some items may also have unique properties to remind you of the sin they are inspired by…
The first content pack will be available on March 30 and invite players back to Dubai, where coins are overflowing and new gameplay mechanics will tempt your greed. The focus of “Act 1: Greed” is a new Escalation called The Greed Enumeration, which allows you to carry certain items over between each of the three stages. Feeling greedy? Prove it! As well as the new Escalation, “Act 1: Greed” will also include the unlockable “Rapacious Suit” and two sin-themed items; the “Greedy Little Coin” and “The Devil’s Cane,” IO Interactive wrote. You can buy these DLC separately (5 bucks a pop), or as the season pass, called Seven Deadly Sins Collection (for 30).
There will be free content, too: „As well as the “Seven Deadly Sins Collection,” Hitman III owners can continue to enjoy “live content” that is added to the game at no additional cost. As we’ve already done in the last two months, players can expect Escalations, Featured Contracts and Elusive Targets to be added to the game regularly—including brand new Hitman III Elusive Targets! Plus, new seasonal events, such as the Berlin Egg Hunt, will also be available for all owners as well as the return of much-loved seasonal events from Hitman and Hitman II.
To support our “Seven Deadly Sins” expansion, we’re now releasing our regular content as part of a “Season of Sin,” instead of a monthly roadmap. This is mostly a name change, because the Escalations, Featured Contracts, and Elusive Targets are still coming thick and fast—and free!”, IO Interactive added. So they slightly changed their roadmap approach.
We can’t imagine Agent 47 flip out when he puts everything on one number in a Dubai casino and lose everything…
