Io Interactive will make the Paris episode of their Hitman game completely free on 15 December. While in Paris, you'll be able to take part in IOI's free festive content, 'Holiday Hoarders’. The fun is scheduled to end on 05 January.

Io Interactive is giving everyone a chance to have a killer Holiday Season. The pinnacle of high-brow comedy, right there. Moving on. Agent 47 is in Paris as the second location of Hitman is made free for a limited time, as part of the Hitman Holiday Pack*. Deck the halls with boughs of holy hell is that blood?

In addition to the free Prologue, every last bit of Paris content will be free to download starting on 15 December, 2017. While you're on your killing spree, you can give a shot to IOI's free festive content, 'Holiday Hoarders’. The Horaders content will have you try and find Santa as he drops gifts around the stylishly re-decorated Palais de Walewska.

Additionally, you need to stop the two thieves who are following his trail stealing all the gifts and leaving the taps running. You know, stop them, wink wink nudge. Turn their taps off. Their life taps. Murder makes me uncomfortable.

The fun is scheduled to end on 05 January. If you download Paris until then, "it’s yours to keep and all progress will carry through" according to the press release. You'll be able to download Paris if you own and can operate one of the following: a PC, PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One or Xbox One X.

The press release had this to add: "IOI is giving this gift to all players so please do your bit this holiday season whatever you can do from giving money to a charity or offering your time to someone who needs it. Have fun and Happy Holidays, 

IO-Ho-Ho".

*The Holiday Pack is not available in Japan.
