Hitman 2's latest elusive target is a politician with a body double

From March 8 to March 18 an elusive target will be available in Hitman 2's Hawke's Bay level—that's the New Zealand beach house from the tutorial. Dame Barbra Elizabeth Keating is a corrupt politician who has dodged a scandal and is about to embark on a PR tour with a body double for safety. If you manage to complete the contract without killing the double, you'll get a higher rating. Which is nice.

It's the first part of Hitman 2's March update schedule, which also includes a challenge pack called The Butler Did It that unlocks a feather duster, some featured contracts sourced from the community, a Sniper Assassin map for owners of Expansion 1 and the Expansion Pass, and Escalation Contract in Colombia, and finally a Legacy Exclusive Target. Coming on March 29, it'll be the return of the Black Hat from the previous Hitman game, and eliminating him will unlock a tuxedo with gloves.

Have a look at the roadmap for more information.

He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and Playboy.com, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get.
