The Hitman 3 Winter Roadmap 2021 has been revealed, showcasing the launch of two new pieces of permanent seasonal content, the return of many Elusive Contracts, and more. And best of all, it starts today!
Hitman 3 launched earlier this year as an Epic Games Store exclusive. While some players were concerned that they would have to re-buy earlier levels, IO Interactive promised that that wouldn't be the case. Since then, it debuted a bunch of post-launch content and six new locations, ultimately contributing to IO Interactive's strongest year to date. Now, a new batch of content has been revealed in the Hitman 3 Winter Roadmap 2021!
What's Coming in the Hitman 3 Winter Roadmap 2021?
The Hitman 3 Winter Roadmap 2021 promises two new pieces of permanent seasonal content, the return of many Elusive Targets, a chance to play in Dubai, and two sets of Curated Contracts as highlighted on ResetEra.

First up is the Holiday Hoarders event which is available to play right now. Anyone who owns the Hitman 3 free starter pack can enjoy this permanent addition of seasonal content featuring a challenging mission to take down two highly-dangerous burglars throughout December 2021.

Early next year, the Hitman 3 Winter Roadmap will delight players with the Hokkaido Snow Festival starting on January 3, 2022.
