Even bald-headed assassins celebrate the season. So for those who haven't had the opportunity to check out IO Interactive's Hitman, another piece of the game is going free for the holidays.

Starting on Friday, December 15, all PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One owners can boot up Hitman and get access to the Paris mission, in addition to the free Prologue mission. The Hitman Holiday Pack will include the story mission, as well as any Escalation Contracts released since the game first went live back in early 2016.

Players will also get the Holiday Hoarders mission that first debuted in 2016. This mission sees Agent 47 attempting to track down Santa Claus, as well as the Wet Bandits from the "Home Alone" movies. (If they can't handle a ten-year-old kid, I can only wonder how they'll fare against a seasoned contract killer.)

Once the Paris mission is downloaded, it's free to keep. But players only have from December 15 through January 5 to claim it before it goes full price again.

As for existing Hitman owners, there's still new content coming to the game, with new contracts and Elusive Targets. Find details on what's coming for the second half of December, as well as more details on Holiday Hoarders, on the IO Interactive website. Enjoy it while you can, because apparently, IO Interactive is already gearing up for the next Hitman game.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
