I can already tell that something terrible is going to happen with that inflatable crocodile. Cute things are like the Chekhov's gun of Hitman, they always always show up again later and kill somebody.

Hitman's second episode will give Agent 47 a brand new puzzle box of murder in the form of Sapienza, a fictional Mediterranean resort. On top of a new story mission, you can expect the usual assortment of Escalation contracts and limited-time Elusive Targets. Speaking of Elusive Targets, IO Interactive previously said the first one will arrive closer to the launch of Sapienza, so now we have an end date, at least.

Hitman Episode 2: Sapienza will be yours at no additional charge if you bought Hitman: The Full Experience, or you can buy it as individual DLC for the first episode.
