IO Interactive has brought back some fan-favorite content to Hitman: World Of Assassination as Sean Bean makes a return to the franchise.

Now, he's been brought back in what feels like the same mission, but with a number of new additions and twists, now being called The Undying. The content will only be available for a short time, as you can see here, it will end on April 21.
