After going through a bit of a rough separation from Square Enix, IO Interactive appears to have now gotten back into the groove as far as Hitman updates are concerned. Just this month alone we'll be getting 20 new Featured Contracts, 10 of which will be curated by a British speedrunner by the name of Hatch, as well as a Master Scarecrow Challenge Pack that comes with a whole bunch of Halloween themed cosmetics.

The first of these Featured Contracts will be coming on October 13th alongside the Master Scarecrow Challenge Pack. Expect to see 10 new Contracts, 5 new challenges that offer a high amount of location mastery, as well as the above mentioned Halloween cosmetics. If you're wondering what exactly these cosmetics look like, I'm afraid you'll have to wait until next week in order to find out. While the release date for the second pack of Featured Contracts has not yet been announced you can expect to see them in late October, so don't feel the need to rush though all of the challenges as soon as possible - you'll have plenty of time for all of the new content.

If that isn't enough, however, you might be glad to hear that IOI is planning to reveal something big on October 24th. Its not going to be Season 2, so don't get too excited, but it is going to be brand new content for Hitman. I would love to tell you more, but I'm afraid IOI have decided to keep quiet until the announcement itself. On the positive side, at least we'll have a whole bunch of new challenges to keep ourselves busy until the big announcement finally arrives!
