It is Launch Day and Hitman™ gets tougher!
The insane Professional Difficulty Level has been added to the Game with today’s Disc Launch.
Last week, Io-Interactive was pleased to confirm that Hitman™ will receive a new, tougher difficulty setting as part of the free January Update with the disc launch on January 31st. Professional Difficulty Level will offer a tougher challenge for players. With new game features, a separate mastery track with unique rewards, tweaked game mechanics and new AI behavior that combine to create an entirely new experience for all players.
The new difficulty level introduces strict item rules so players will be noticed carrying suspicious items, disguises that can be ruined depending how you take out the NPC wearing them, new security camera rules, limited save games and a whole lot more. Everything needed to challenge even the top players. To unlock Professional Difficulty Level players will need to reach Mastery Level 20 for each location and there are separate leaderboards between difficulty levels. Professional Difficulty Level will be available for all main Story missions only, excluding Prologue.
Become the Master Assassin in this intense spy-thriller story. As Agent 47 you perform contract hits on powerful, high-profile targets in exotic locations around the world, from Paris, Italy and Morocco to Bangkok, the USA and Japan in this creative stealth action game. Gameplay focuses on taking out targets in huge and intricate sandbox levels with complete freedom of approach. Where to go, when to strike and who to kill – it is all up to you.
Hitman™ The Complete First Season is available today on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
