Fresh off the heels of a massively successful HITMAN III launch, IO Interactive are building up steam on their post-release content plans. Not resting on their plenitude of laurels, the Danish developers have today broke news of further content in the works to keep the world of assassination kicking for some time. In addition to the already-announced escalations, seasonal content and featured contracts, a new premium expansion has today been unveiled.
HITMAN 3: Seven Deadly Sins, is a seven-act expansion that promises to take players deep into the psyche of our favourite chrome-domed gun for hire, Agent 47. Kicking things off on March 30th is the gold-focused opening act of Greed. every act will be both stylistically and thematically based around similar capitol vices such as sloth, wrath, gluttony, lust, pride and envy.
Each act will be released separately and coincide with the ongoing free monthly content roadmaps set out by IO Interactive. Act 1: Greed launches March 30th for $4.99 / £4.99 / €4.99, and features new unique escalation mission, The Greed Enumeration. You’ll also be able to snag a unique coin, a dandy looking cane, and the Rapacious Suit; a gaudy single-breasted affair that looks like it was left on the cutting-room floor of the last Deus Ex game.

To celebrate the announcement of this new wave of content, IO Interactive are re-branding April’s content roadmap as the Season of Sin. A mostly cosmetic decision that wont change the already announced live-service additions expected to arrive for owners of the game. That roadmap will release April 1st and give players a look at whats to come in the world of assassination over the next 4-6 weeks.
