Britain might be bathed in the erratic rays of the summer, but IO Interactive is having none of it. Starting tomorrow, 30th July, it’s packing Agent 47 off to a desolate corner of snowy Siberia, the setting for Hitman 2’s brand-new Sniper Assassin map.
Specifically, Agent 47’s latest assignment, titled Crime and Punishment, takes him to the Perm-14 prison complex in order to complete four new objectives. There are two new targets to eliminate – ex-Russian mobster Roman Khabko and former KGB operative (now prison warden) Vitaly Reznikov – and Agent 47 will, according to IO’s announcement post, also need to dispatch some Siberian Tigers and start a prison riot to cover his tracks.
Additionally, the Siberia update introduces a range of new Sniper Assassin challenges, helping players on the way toward scoring the new Druzhina 34 ICA Arctic sniper unlock, plus a selection of new trophies and achievements.
