Hitman 3 patch adds fixes, new Escalations, and a snazzy turtleneck

Hitman 3 patch

The first big patch for Hitman 3 just went live earlier today. Patch 3.11 has no maintenance time, and once you download and install it, just restart the game for it to update. The patch is between 2 and 3 GB on all platforms. Some of the standout additions in new Hitman 3 patch is the “tactical turtleneck,” free to all players, as well as new Escalations.

The turtleneck can be used at any location that lets you wear a suit. To unlock it, you must return to the ICA Facility and complete the mission called “The Final Test.” Once you complete the mission, you will be free to enter the Danger Zone (sorry, I couldn’t resist).

If you own the Deluxe Edition or Deluxe Pack versions of the game you will gain access to two new Escalations in Hitman 3. The final Escalation, the last one for the Deluxe content, is expected to release in March. The first new Escalation is called The Proloff Parable, which takes place in the Carpathian Mountains.


Agent 47 will don tactical white equipment like a polar version of Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell. Once you complete all of the Proloff stages, all of the items specific to this Escalation will be added to your inventory. The awards include The White Shadow costume, a white custom Sieger 300, and a White Katana.

The second Escalation to get added is called The Gauchito Antiquity, and it takes place in Mendoza, Argentina. Beating all of these stages will add The Guru costume, as well as the Emetic Grenade and Emetic Pen Syringe, to your inventory. More new content is planned to roll out in the coming weeks. February 26 through March 8 will add a new elusive target in Sapienza called “The Deceivers.”

In addition to all of the new content in this Hitman 3 patch, some quality of life changes have been made as well. You can find all of the technical details in the full patch notes on the official Hitman website. Some welcome inclusions, like an updated HUD to let you know if you are trespassing while performing agility moves, have been added among other things. You can get Hitman 3 right now on the Epic Game Store where it will be an exclusive for one year until January 2022.
