Hitman 2 is getting a new update for expansion pass owners. The update will add a new Siberia level and much more for fans to enjoy.

Roman Khabko

Not much is known about Khabko’s youth although it is believed that his name is an alias assumed in the late 80’s while he worked for a Russian mobster in New York. It was there that he made a name for himself and rose through the ranks of the American arm of the Russian Mafia. He left the country after a drug deal went sour and for DEA agents were left dead at the scene.

Back in Russia, Khabko was involved in human trafficking and his clientele became the top tier of political aspirants, diplomats and high-ranking politicians. Eventually, he oversteps his boundaries and blackmails an important diplomat, resulting in his arrest. He is placed at the remote, privately-run Perm-14 facility and has been there for a decade.

However, he dreams of returning to warmer climates and has pooled his remaining wealth to offer $10M USD to the prisons warden, Vitaly Reznikov to help him escape.

Vitaly Reznikov

A former KGB operative who worked on exposing foreign spies, Reznikov travelled most of the Soviet Union and made friends and enemies in all places. He was given a ranking position within the FSB after saving the life of a high-ranking KGB officer. It was at the FSB that he discovered several abandoned facilities in Siberia and pulled some strings to assume control of them.

Over the next several years, Reznikov rebuilt the facilities as prisons and would eventually host some of the state’s most controversial prisoners. Reports of abuse, disappearances and corruption started trickling out of the Perm-14 facility and rumours persist that Reznikov lets high-ranking prisoners leave if they pay enough.

Now, Reznikov fears investigation by the UN Human Rights Council and has decided to play his last gambit and accept a multimillion dollar bribe from the Russian Mobster to facilitate his escape.

The Siberia update will launch tomorrow on all platforms. Hitman 2 is now available for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
