Agents at the ready, for we’ve received intel of a new Sniper Assassin map being released for Hitman 2 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It’s out right now so you better wrap up warm as we’re heading off to Siberia for this next mission!
The Sniper Assassin mode enables players to play missions either on their own as Agent 47, or alongside a friend in co-op, using operatives Stone and Knight. The latest map, Siberia, transports players to the Perm-14 prison facility located near the frigid Siberian tundra, one of the harshest climates on the planet. The aim here is to eliminate two targets and incite a prison riot to cover their tracks; the two primary targets within the mission are Roman Khabko, a renowned Russian mobster with suspected political ties, and Vitaly Reznikov, a warden at the privately-owned prison who has been offered a bribe to facilitate an early release for Khabko.
To complete the mission, both targets must be eliminated as well as Reznikov’s mercenary guards, known as the Siberian Tigers. You had better take them out swiftly before it’s too late, because Khabko’s release could set off a chain of events that come with certain negative diplomatic implications. The map is packed with opportunities, achievements and hidden secrets to explore, along with unique gameplay moments allowing players to hide bodies and set entire buildings on fire. Completing challenges within the mission will also reward mastery progress with the ICA Druzhina 34 Arctic sniper rifle, Agent 47’s weapon of choice for this assignment. Reaching the highest mastery level with this rifle will permanently unlock it for use within all sandbox locations in Hitman 2.
Available as of now, the Hitman 2 Siberia Sniper Assassin Map can be downloaded from the Xbox Store, as long as you own the Expansion Pass – which is priced at £32.79. For other platforms, please check your respective digital store.
