Hitman 3The new map, Ambrose Island, will come to all players as free DLC on July 26, IO Interactive announced in the July roadmap† This is the game’s first new map since its launch last January.
Judging by the trailer, Ambrose Island looks like a dingy, tropical environment led by a rebellious outcast. IO Interactive says the map is a “fully explorable sandbox location” with a “hidden bay, home to a dangerous pirate syndicate operating in the Andaman Sea and with many hidden secrets.” It is also set to come with a range of new objectives, challenges and rewards to unlock.
IO Interactive first previewed the map—codenamed “Rocky” at the time—as part of its year two unveiling earlier this year† In May, the game studio has announced that it has increased the release date of Ambrose Island to delay the Hitman 3‘s upcoming roguelike mode called Freelancer. The new mode was originally slated to be released in the spring of 2022, but should now be released in the second half of this year.
IO Interactive also outlined some other changes in its roadmap. It trades in Himmapan Hotel as the game’s free rotating location until July 17, and has added Vicente Murillo as the current elusive target, with Wen Ts’ai returning on July 15.
