IO Interactive hat nun das November-Update für Hitman veröffentlicht, welches das Spiel auf die Version 1.7.0 hievt. Der Patch verbessert neben der Stabilität auch die Statistik-Seite und nimmt sich einiger Bugs an. Zudem soll es ab sofort möglich sein seine Waffen und Gegenstände aus dem Online-Modus in das eigene Offline-Profil zu übertragen. Passend zu Weihnachten soll es im Dezember ein weiteres Update geben.
Die wichtigsten Änderungen im Überblick:
All unlockable items that are earned when connected to the game’s servers, are now also saved to an ‚offline profile‘, meaning that they can be used when in Offline Mode.
Items include all mastery items; including weapons, gear, starting/pickup locations as well as Elusive Target suit rewards and Challenge Pack unlocks. Note: You must be connected to the game servers in order to acquire new unlocks.
Fixed different issues across all locations that previously resulted in the game crashing or becoming unstable.
Opportunity Completion Checkmark
We’ve added functionality to mark an opportunity with a checkmark when it has been successfully completed, similar to how we show that a challenge has been completed.
This will show you the completed opportunities at-a-glance and make it easier to track completion when trying to achieve the achievements/trophies linked to opportunities.
Silent Assassin Rating Display
The scoring screen now displays „Silent Assassin“ when a player completes a mission with that rating.
Major Update to Statistics Page
The ‚Statistics‘ page has been overhauled with a new visual design that displays the challenge completion, mastery level completion and overall location completion.
We’ve changed the background of the pause menu to be the current in-game moment, rather than the world map.
Mission Accomplished Screen Update
When successfully completing a mission, the mission accomplished screen will now show the last frame of the exit sequence, rather than fading to black.
Contracts Mode ‚Success State‘
After playing a Contract, the menu will now show either a checkmark (complete) or a cross (fail) to show your status for the Contract. Improved consistency for Elusive Targets Challenge Images The Elusive Targets Challenges now have a more consistent style.
New IOI logo
We have a new studio logo, and now that’s in the game.
Challenge Completed SFX
We added a subtle sound effect that plays when unlocking a challenge.
Sarajevo Six Briefings [PS4 Only]
Briefings videos for The Mercenary and The Controller have been added to the game.
Pull an Enemy
In this update, we’ve added the ability for 47 to pull people over balconies or out of windows, when he is hanging on a ledge or below the balcony/window.
Unfortunately, there is a known issue for this move: NPC’s that see this move will not blame 47, even if they are looking directly at the NPC or at 47.
For that reason, we will remove this ability with our December Update and fix this. It will then be re-introduced with a game update in January, around the same time as the disc release.
