Hitman 3 gets an ingenious turtleneck (tac-turt) in the first main piece

Hitman 3 gets a little more content in its first important piece. Developer IO Interactive today launched the update for consoles, PC, and Stadia. With this download, players will receive a handful of important missions, some new missions, and – most importantly – a deadly ingenious turtleneck.

The turtle tuck is a new award for completing a Final Test mission on the ICA Resource site. Once unlocked, players can use it on any platform. So now you play as a bald Steve Jobs who kills people – so just like the real Steve Jobs, reportedly. You can start downloading the patch on Epic Games Launcher, PlayStation 5/4, and Xbox right now. If you are playing on Stadia or Switch, these will automatically switch to the updated version without the need for an update.

In addition to the tac-turtle and bug fixes, IO is also releasing new content for the Deluxe Edition of Hitman 3. If you have a Deluxe Pack or Hitman 3 Deluxe Edition, you can access two new Deluxe Escalation missions. The first is The Proloff Parable, in which players take out enemies in The White Shadow ninja costume on the Carpathian Mountains scene. The second is The Gauchito Antiquity, which has players destroying targets like The Guru on Mendoza.

Unfortunately, you can’t use the tac-turtle on the Escalations, but that just makes it more special when you use it.
