Hitman's Agent 47 dressed up as Santa Claus

If you would like to get into the Christmas spirit, but don't feel like stopping your murder spree just yet, worry not as IO-Interactive has you cowered! In "Holiday Hoarders", the upcoming free mission for Hitman, you will be given a chance to combine the two by skulking around Paris as a very, very naughty Santa Claus.

Since the sight of Agent 47 in a full Santa costume (and this includes the bushy beard and magnificent mustache) is downright hilarious, allow me show you the recently posted trailer. Have a look, and I dare you to try and not sing along:

The Holiday Hoarders mission will be available for everyone to enjoy on December 13, and if you would like to learn a little bit more about it you can head over to the Hitman website.

On the other hand, if you don't feel like assassination is really in the Christmas spirit, you'll be glad to hear that this entire event has been designed in order to promote the World Cancer Research Fund. So if you feel like thanking IO-Interactive for their work on Hitman, or more specifically their work on this Christmas themed mission, donating to charity would be the best way to do so.

“Cancer is something that affects everyone in one way or another at some point in their lives. We’re giving away some fun, free holiday content to all HITMAN players and we ask in return that if you want to donate to a great cause, please give whatever you can.”

- Hannes Seifert, Studio Head, Io-Interactive
