Hitman 2 is adding a new sandbox later this month. Called Haven Island, it’s a warm tropical paradise run by an organization who promises its clients will be able to disappear from the world on vacation. Agent 47, of course, will be making sure that’s a more permanent arrangement.
The update will launch on Sept. 24. It’s free for expansion pass owners, but there’s no information on standalone prices.
A new blog post from IO Interactive sets the scene:
“This new location transports players to the warm beaches and tropical paradise of the Maldives, where Agent 47 must travel under a fake identity and assume the role of a guest at the privately-owned Haven Island – headquarters of the world’s premiere reputation management service.
All guests are treated to the best possible service, food and every luxury you would imagine from a tropical island resort.”
