In my recent review of Hitman Episode 2, one complaint was about the “Elusive Target” missions — despite the game debuting two months ago, that section of the Hitman menu remained blank. IO Interactive hadn’t said what those missions would consist of, nor had they set a release date for them. As luck would have it, the first Elusive Mission launched the day my review went live, so consider this an amendment about this formerly-absent content.
