At release, it will include three locations and six campaign missions in Paris, Marrakesh and Sapienza with approximately 800 targets to off in Contract mode.

There will also be new Contracts released weekly “promoted” creations from the community and targets which need to be taken care of within a particualr time-limit.

A new sandbox location will be released every month from April – June, each with new weapons, missions, disguises, Contracts and more.
