Hitman's next Elusive Target will be live on Friday

UPDATE: Landslide bonus mission revealed in new trailer.

UPDATE 27/01/2017 7.03pm: Hitman's third bonus mission, Landslide, now has a new trailer showing how it's altered its Sapienza map to make way for a concert.

This time out you'll be crashing music festival Festival del Paese that your target, a corrupt politician named Marco Abbiati, is attending.

Landslide is a bonus mission for those who purchased the The Complete First Season of Hitman, its Upgrade Pack (the Episodes 2-6 bundle), or the retail disc. Basically the only way you won't have this content is if you bought each episode individually.

Landslide will launch on 31st January to coincide with Hitman's retail edition. The game will also receive an all new Professional Difficulty mode on that same day as part of its January update.

ORIGINAL STORY 24/01/2017 7.13pm: Hitman's next Elusive Target, the 19th of these limited time engagements, will launch on 27th January.

Set in Paris, this mission will be available at 1pm UK time and will remain live for 10 days until the same time Monday, 6th February.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to eliminate a blackmailer named Walter Williams and retrieve the memory stick. As with all Elusive Targets, you only get one shot at this. Make it count.


Next week, on 31st January, Hitman will receive a new bonus episode with a mission called Landslide to coincide with the game's retail release. There will also be a new Escalation mission set in Colorado.

To keep up with all Hitman updates, there's a Hitman Companion app on iOS and Android.
