Hitman screenshot of Agent 47 in a very holiday themed atmosphere

If you ever wanted to give the new Hitman a try, but you were a bit cautious due to the whole episodic format controversy, you'll be glad to hear that the developers are currently giving away the prologue and first episode (Paris) for free! If you're on PC simply head on over to Steam, download the free Hitman Holiday Pack, and you'll be throwing chandeliers on people in no time.

There is one very important thing you should keep in mind, however, and that is the fact that the Hitman Holiday Pack will only be available until January 5th. That said, once you've downloaded your copy it will be yours to keep forever, as will all of the progress and mission mastery you've acquired. The same applies if you ever decide to buy the full version or any of the following episodes.

Besides the two maps, this Holiday Pack will also bring with it a special Christmas mission - Holiday Hoarders. You can expect to see holiday-themed weapons and decorations, two nasty thieves trying to steal everyone's presents, a teleporting Santa, and naturally, a very jolly Agent 47 who needs to save the day! And just in case you think I'm joking, allow me to leave you with last year's trailer. Have fun saving Christmas!
