Agent 47 is a greedy one.

IO Interactive has announced the first post-launch DLC for Hitman 3. “Greed”, the first of the Seven Deadly Sins DLCs, promises to take players deep into the mind of Agent 47. The DLC will launch next week, on March 30, 2021.

Hitman 3 launched in January this year to critical acclaim and concluded the rebooted World of Assassination Trilogy. Taking players to Dubai, Berlin, China and more, it featured some of the best level design of the now 21-year-old franchise.

IO Interactive promises that its seven-part expansion will feature “new gameplay opportunities, visually distinct contracts and unique sin-themed rewards”. Players will face a new Escalation, The Green Enumeration, in the latest DLC, where certain items can be carried over between each of the three challenge stages. Players will also be able to get their hands on the Rapacious Suit, a slick golden-clad outfit. Sticking with the theme of greed, the “greedy little coin” and “Devil’s Cane” will also be available.

The DLC also comes with changes to the game’s monthly roadmap. Instead of the April roadmap, the Season of Greed will launch, bringing with it a collection of paid and free content for Hitman players. The new season still comes with the featured contracts, escalations and challenges. Each sin-themed pack is available for individual purchase or can be bought in a collection bundle for a discounted price.

With each season lasting four to six weeks, centred around a different sin, Hitman players have a lot of content ahead to them. The first of the new expansions, along with the Season of Greed, will be available from March 30.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
