Strange things are afoot in Hitman 2, right at the end of October. Yes, Halloween is infiltrating the game.

A free update is dropping today, delivering a Halloween-themed Escalation Contract set in New Zealand’s Hawkes Bay. This is the level that’s included in the freebie Hitman 2 Starter Pack, so you can check out the game – including the new content – for free to see if it’s your kind of cool thing.

The special in-game event will feature an environment facelift that includes skeletons, pumpkins, crows and other holiday inspired bits and bobs. Players who take it on and survive will permanently unlock both the Tactical Wetsuit and Bat Shuriken rewards.

Hitman 2 is available now for PS4 and Xbox One.
