After a swashbuckling-themed month, IO Interactive have released details on August’s roadmap for Hitman 3. This month Hitman 3 owners will be getting new challenges and changes in the Elusive Target Arcade, a new weapon unlock for Dartmoor, elusive targets and more.
Here is a brief visual summary of August’s roadmap below:
Elusive Target Arcade additions and changes
Starting on August 4, two new additions to the Elusive Target Arcade, including overall changes to future Arcades. The first arcade, The Dyads will consist of duo targets: The Deceivers, The Procurers and The Surgeons. The last arcade is titled The Diabolicals, which contains The Serial Killer, The Heartbreaker and the infamous Mr Giggles aka The Entertainer. These arcades will be available for all Hitman 3 owners, even if you don’t own previous game content. After completing one of the Arcades, players unlock The Ruby Rude Track Suit.
Future changes for Elusive Target Arcade consist of the variety of elusive targets being bundled to create an Arcade. Previously all targets have been from Hitman 3, however, that’s about to change. IO Interactive will be opening up the floor for all past elusive targets from both Hitman 1 and Hitman 2. This will mean that future Arcades can consist of one member from all three Hitman games, allowing IO to create new themes and challenges.
After enjoying your stay at the Himmapan Hotel in Bangkok, this month players will be able to journey to the farmlands of Colorado in this month’s free location rotation. Explore an abandoned apricot farm that is secretly a front for a militia training camp and take out four of their high-ranking members. You’ll need your A-game on this one since, unlike other locations, you will be trespassing throughout the level. Hitman 3 owners and Free Starter Pack players can take on this hidden militia for ten days starting on August 11.
The Dartmoor Garden Show + The Floral Baller
For the season of summer, Dartmoor is hosting a garden show on one of its sunniest days. However, the competition is fierce and for that reason is why 47 has been contracted to eliminate one of the contestants. This unique event has been available since last year but is now receiving a new weapon unlock. The Floral Baller is a new silenced pistol with a floral design that players can unlock on August 11. Players with the Free Starter Pack can also access the garden show from August 11-31.
August’s Elusive Targets
In August there are three elusive targets for players to take on. If you are unaware of what an elusive target is, it is a limited-time contract where players hunt down a target on one of the established Hitman maps with only one chance to eliminate them and get away. When the contract has been completed or failed, it will be no longer accessible to the player.
The first contract is a duo contract in Dartmoor beginning on August 5. The targets are Jack Roe and Robert Burk aka The Procurers (Year 2 Edition), one is a famous chef while the other is an embalmer. The contract will be available for ten days ending on August 15.
The second contract is another duo contract in Bangkok beginning August 12. These targets are Richard Ekwensi and his wife Ines Aka, they make the contract titled The Ex-Dictator (Year 2 Edition), which will return players to the Himmapan hotel. This contract will be available for ten days ending on August 22.
The final contract will take players to the militia training camp in Colorado beginning on August 19. Take on The Chameleon (Year 2 Edition) and make it look like an accident. This contract will last ten days and end on August 29.
Community Featured Contracts “Flower Power”
The next community contracts challenge has arrived with this month’s theme being Flower Power. IO Interactive is giving players the opportunity again to create their own contracts and have them published for all players to see on August 25. As long as the contract is inspired/themed after Flower Power, then the contract can be considered for the community featured contracts. The submission thread will be up on the Hitmanforum, so keep an eye out for the post.
