One for each location. In Paris, a mismatched suit, in Sapienza, a socks and sandals outfit. Not sure about the rest.

Bangkok, Colorado and Hokkaido already have theirs. Multiples, even. For Marrakesh, maybe just a variation of the socks-and-sandals outfit, but with a CIA giftshop t-shirt as well.

Pick targets that are isolated in pairs. The upstairs of the farm house works pretty well. Let the non-target see you, kill the target in the manner required, kill/knock out non-target.

For the fire challenge you can pretty much activate Wicker Man and just beeline at the targets.

That would be extremely complicated. You'd still need to get the disguise and set people on fire with fuel barrels or whatever. I don't think that's practical at all. If you try that and succeed, please do the world a favour and record it and upload it to youtube.

I haven't tried doing any of these myself yet but when I do, I think that Mr Freeze's run will pretty much be the way to go

Edit: I think there are only two people that get close to or are standing near fuel barrels that you can set on fire on that map. (Maya and one of the elite guards)

If you want to do them using Freeze's method, there's a small tweak that I'd recommend that made the non-fire ones easier for me. As the hacker, before grabbing the scarecrow outfit, make your way to the basement first and kill Ezra and the 2 guards. Made it a lot easier for me to get into the basement as the scarecrow without worrying about spotted/timing issues.

I'll give that a shot. I think I'm having issues with not actually getting spotted doing the 2nd poison kill by the kane and lynch playing hacker or something cause that cheev keeps on not popping for me when I try it freeze's way and replaying is time consuming. Killing ezra early might also stop him spotting the balcony guard body which always gave me issues. I could not manage to do the taste of your own medicine kill from the CJ video. the shotgun guard witness on the first kill always manages to get a shot off no matter where i drop the charge or how fast I try to get to the scarecrow.

I would literally just stand in front of the video gamer until he definitely spots you, then go in for the injection kill. Also I found that knocking out the witness wouldn't get the challenge to pop, so I'd knock them out then put a bullet in their unconscious head and it'd pop immediately.

I've done the challenge pack twice on two different accounts and it worked fine for me both times this way.

That worked out for me, thanks. Was worried before that getting spotted so directly would cause the other guy to turn around. Now just the fire challenge left to complete.

HITMAN – Game of the Year Edition will be released digitally on November 7th 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC!
Here’s a full rundown of what’s included:

HITMAN The Complete First Season
New: ‘Patient Zero’ Campaign
New: Clown Suit and themed weapon
New: Raven Suit and themed weapon
New: Cowboy Suit and themed weapon
New: 3 themed Escalation Contracts

The Complete First Season
This is everything that we created for HITMAN Season One. All seven locations, all bonus missions, all of the Challenge Packs, Escalation Contracts, Featured Contracts and more than 700 challenges! We’re talking more than 100 hours of gameplay and a game that we’re continuing to improve. See below for more of that.

New: Patient Zero Campaign
After the routine elimination of a target, a contingency plan to unleash a global pandemic is triggered and Agent 47 must race against the clock to prevent a virus from spreading. This four-mission campaign spans different locations in the game, each one re-worked from the original settings with new gameplay opportunities, disguises, characters, challenges, gameplay mechanics, AI behaviour and HUD elements. Bangkok, Sapienza, Colorado and Hokkaido look and feel completely different with a new time of day and new custom music created by the composer for Season One, Niels Bye Nielsen.

New: Clown Suit and ‘A New Bat’
Corky the Clown is back! This fan-favourite from Blood Money returns in HITMAN and his red wig, colourful socks and giant shoes look better than ever! Not only does the clown suit look great, but it’s the only way to carry his signature weapon without attracting attention. ‘A New Bat’ will trigger custom sound and visual effects every time it is used.

New: Raven Suit and ‘Sieger 300 Ghost’
Where tactical meets practical and stylish, you’ll find the Raven Suit. This is the perfect choice for Agent 47’s sniper operations. The Raven Suit is black and charcoal with the finest gloves and pockets for every tool. The Sieger 300 Ghost is a unique ICA variant of the Sieger 300 and the all-black rifle perfectly matches the Raven Suit for high-precision, high-damage long-range engagements. It’s got a supressor, an extended scope with four levels of zoom and the Marksman perk, which allows you to improve your aim and slow time.

New: Cowboy Suit and ‘The Striker’
The Cowboy suit is steel blue on patriotic white and comes complete with a beautiful set of albino alligator boots, sunglasses and a cowboy hat as pure as Colorado snow. Naturally, the belt buckle is the size of your fist. Accompanying this suit is The Striker; a magnum pistol that packs one hell of a punch. Not only does it have increased damage at all ranges, it also knocks back targets and has piercing rounds.

New: Themed Escalation Contracts
There’s more! We’ve created a new Escalation Contract for each new weapon/suit combination. You’ll be dressing in each new suit and using each new weapon as you complete Escalation Contracts with some brand new complications based on some new gameplay mechanics. We’ve themed these new features with each suit to make for some unique experiences.
Each Escalation comes with a new starting location unique to that Contract and all of the Escalations are made up of 3-stages, so expect the challenge to ramp up quickly- one of the Escalations reaches 7 targets, something we’ve never done before in this game. Completing each Escalation Contract will unlock the corresponding weapon to be used in all locations across the entire game, which means that Clown Only, Striker Only runs are now possible and we can’t wait to see them!

Here’s how to get your hands on the GOTY Edition
HITMAN – Game of the Year Edition will be available digitally on November 7th 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
New Players: HITMAN – GOTY Edition will be available digitally for $60. That includes The Complete First Season plus all of our new GOTY content.
Existing Players: If you already own The Complete First Season, either digitally or on disc, the ‘GOTY Upgrade’ includes all of the new GOTY content and will be available digitally for $20.
(The $20 GOTY Upgrade is also available to anyone who purchased all episodes individually or previously purchased the Intro Pack/Upgrade Pack combination.)
We’ll let you know when the GOTY Edition and GOTY Upgrade are available on PSN, Xbox Live and Steam so that you can get the exact pricing for your region.

Free Game Update/Patch for all players
So, on November 7th we will release the GOTY Edition, which we’ve outlined above – but there’s a whole lot more coming!
Anyone who owns HITMAN will also get a game update on November 7th. We will share the full details of the game update soon, but here’s some of the highlights ahead of time:
– A redesigned UI with a new colour scheme and visual style
A fresh new look across the board and re-organised menus to make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
– New Contracts Mode features
‘Trending’ helps you find the most popular contracts, making sure you can easily find a new challenge. We’re also adding and 10 ‘Conditions’ that will add huge depth to Contracts Mode, such as restricting disguise changes or requiring players to use a specific exit. Anyone who creates a contract will be able to toggle these conditions to set a more defined challenge for their contract.
– Major lighting improvements to all missions
New colour grading, readjusted HDR adaptation rules and re-designed skyboxes mean that our locations look more vivid, vibrant and lifelike.
– Commemorative Elusive Target Unlock
If you played any of the Elusive Targets we released during Season One, we’re giving you an in-game coin to commemorate your progress and thank you for your support.
– Xbox One X Enhancements
A whole host of enhancements are on the way for Xbox One X owners, including options for native 4K and a higher framerate. Specific details to come in a Xbox-specific blog post.
– Tobii Eye Tracking support for PC
Enhance your killer instincts with Dynamic Light Adaptation, Extended View and a new special feature added specifically for HITMAN. Find more details here.
– Various fixes and improvements
Full release notes will be published closer to 7 November. That should be enough time to start thinking about your default loadout for each location…
Oh, and one more thing…

– Elusive Target Re-activation
Starting in November, we will re-activate Elusive Targets. If you missed any Elusive Targets the first time around, or if you are new to HITMAN, this is your chance to experience these intense time-limited targets. All of the suit unlocks are back in play for both new and existing players to complete their collection. If you’ve already completed or failed an Elusive Target, you won’t be able to play that specific contract again; your record for that contract will stand and cannot be altered. Re-activated ET’s will still be time-limited and the first one will be re-activated shortly after the release of our Game of the Year Edition on November 7th.


20 bones seems a good price for four remastered levels plus fun extra stuff. More than happy to throw money at IOI for their Season 2 warchest.

PLUS! I'll finally be able to get the Bangkok suit because I missed one of those and it's absence in my 47 wardrobe has always caused me great pain.

I'm not. They've put the finishing touches on Season 1, gave everyone who has been waiting the perfect jumping-in point (and still getting $60 out of them) with a mind-boggling amount of content, and offering existing players more of what they want at a fair price.

Now that the first season is wrapped up with a bow on top, they can concentrate on working on the next season and will announce that when appropriate.

Back when Squeenix was reportedly "cancelling" Hitman a lot of people had said Season 2 was in traction or around halfway done in terms of concepts. IOI probably wouldn't have bothered to wrest themselves free with their IP intact if a second season wasn't in the cards.

I'd say they've given me way more than $20 extra already. Day one purchase for me. I've often thought about buying that requiem pack just to support them but I always forget before I follow through.

Now just announce season 2.

Edit: Just to be clear I have no doubts they will. Just want it out there.

I agree, I just wish they'd release some sort of confirmation. They use the term "Season One" so it'd sort of imply a continuation, but I'd still like it to be confirmed.

I've been playing this series ever since the first one came out on PC, I wanna see it keep going!
