IO Interactive, the independent video game developer and publisher known for the internationally acclaimed HITMAN franchise, the upcoming Project 007 – an origin story of James Bond, and Project Fantasy, among others, is pleased to announce today the launch of their brand new Elusive Target mission, “The Drop,” in Hitman: World of Assassination.
In this new mission, available for free to all owners of Hitman: World of Assassination, Agent 47 is tasked with taking out Alexios Laskaridis, an international DJ turned drug trafficker modeled on the appearance of world-famous DJ Dimitri Vegas.
Until Nov. 26, players can participate in this unique do-or-die contract. The mission offers numerous ways for Agent 47 to eliminate the threat posed by the duplicitous musician during his performance at a club in Berlin.
Players are invited to replay the original Berlin mission from Hitman 3 before tackling the Elusive Target mission, as it served as the basis for the development of this new thematic mission. They only get one chance to complete this mission, and if they want to increase their chances of taking out Dimitri Vegas’ criminal alter ego, it is certainly helpful to become familiar with the environment.
