Hitman 2 Prologue

- Guided Training and Freeform Training
- The Final Test mission
- The ability to hide in foliage
In addition, if you already own the Hitman Legacy Pack, you will be able to play the Legacy locations in Hitman 2 Prologue.
Hitman 2 Prologue is permanently free. Think of it as a demo of Hitman 2, using an improved Hitman 1 game.
Hitman 2 Holiday Hoarders
On 18 December 2018, IO Interactive introduced Hitman 2 Holiday Hoarders. This gives everyone a FREE Paris Legacy location and a unique Christmas theme!
If you complete the Secret Santa Challenge Pack, you will be able to unlock the Santa 47 suit as a permanent addition to your inventory!
If you already own Hitman 2, then you will get all that with your December update.
If you don’t own Hitman 2 yet, then you just have to download and install Hitman 2 – Holiday Hoarders.
Note : After 8 January 2019, the Holiday Hoarders mission will be removed. Only the Santa 47 suit (if you obtained it), will be permanently available.
Why Is IO Interactive Doing This?
The Prologue and Holiday Hoarders downloads are designed to get you started on Hitman 2. To give you a taste of the game, so that you will be enticed to upgrade to the full Hitman 2 game.
So give them a try, and if you like them, go buy Hitman 2!
