Hitman 3 Ends the Year with Some Winter Fun

It’s been quite a year for Hitman 3 and what made it even more exciting was the Seven Deadly Sins expansion. That will be wrapped up rather nicely with Year 2, beginning January 20. Since there’s a bit of time left, everyone’s invited to the Winter Season events.

One of these is Holiday Hoarders, which has already started. This one has Paris all decked out with presents scattered across the palace and snow cannons spreading that white joy. However, it’s not all fun and games since thieves Harry and Marv are in town and stealing whatever they can get their hands on. Players are tasked with saving the holidays and those able to do it get the iconic Santa 47 suit. By the way, this is going to be a permanent addition to the game.

Speaking of permanent additions, the same can be said for the Hokkaido Snow Festival. It’s making its official debut this January 3. This is straightforward where players need to throw snowballs and eliminate the target. Those who succeed get the Snow Festival Suit and Ice Pick.

Elusive Targets Reactivated

For the Winter Season, there are seven Elusive Targets that players can take on. Each has been available previously so this should be good news for those who missed them the first time. Here’s the schedule of the targets:

  • The Ascensionist
    • December 3 to December 9
  • The Collector
    • December 10 to December 16
  • The Iconoclast
    • December 17 to December 23
  • The Liability
    • December 24 to December 30
  • The Heartbreaker
    • December 31 to January 6
  • The Procurers
    • January 7 to January 13
  • The Rage
    • January 14 to January 19

This Month’s Contracts

For Curated Contracts, enjoy some Winter Madness courtesy of Frote7’s Speedrun Community. They’re arriving in the game on January 13. For those who can’t wait that long and want to be involved this early, just head over to the F7SC Discord channel.

Like many of the end-of-year Featured Contracts in the franchise, this one is also offering something different. There are going to be three holiday-themed Contracts available starting December 21.
