In Hitman, Dimitri Vegas will step into the virtual role of a drug-slinging DJ named The Drop. While no release date has been announced, players can look forward to hunting down The Drop when the new Elusive Target mission becomes available for free this fall.
“I’m extremely excited to be a part of the Hitman universe,” said Vegas. “It’s always exciting to be involved in creative projects and I’m looking forward to seeing how everyone reacts to my character when the mission launches later this year.”
It has been a while since Hitman players have had the chance to hunt a new Elusive Target. “This will be the first Elusive Target mission that we’ve created in two years and we’re very happy that our passionate community and newcomers to the game will be able to enjoy it for free later this year as part of IO Interactive’s 25-year anniversary celebrations,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO of IO Interactive.
The Drop Elusive Target is expected to arrive in fall 2023 and will be free for all Hitman owners. Head over to the IOI blog for more information.
