IO Interactive Unveils Free Hitman 3 Location Ambrose Island

Hitman 3 gets a new location: Ambrose Island. The DLC will be released on July 26 and is free to all players who own the game. The pirate-themed location brings new gameplay possibilities to the stealth game.

IO Interactive says that Ambrose Island is a ‘hidden bay’ and the ‘home of a dangerous group of pirates operating in the Andaman Sea’. The sandbox location is “fully explorable” and includes “new objectives, gameplay options, challenges and unlockable rewards”. One of those rewards is the Guerrilla Wetsuit, which can be seen in the trailer below.

It is the first time that the game gets a completely new map since its release in January last year. The Seven Deadly Sins DLC reuses existing maps from the franchise. In its July roadmap, IOI also announces that the Himmapan Hotel in Bangkok is in the rotation of free locations until July 17. On Friday, the Elusive Target Vicente Murillo was added, which will be available for ten days. Food critic Wen Ts’ai will also be added next Friday.

Previously, the game’s Freelancer single-player mode was delayed until the second half of 2022. That roguelike mode would bring new assassination missions and a customizable safehouse where Agent 47 stores his gear.
