Hitman Episode 2 Coming April



The second episode in the new Hitman game will be released next month.

Sapienza takes place in a small Italian coastal town and will be available on April 26th, Square Enix has announced.

The episode will be available for free for anybody that has already bought the full experience, or as a £7.99 purchase for anybody that decided to hold off.

A new patch for Hitman, 1.03, will start rolling out today and will include a variety of improvements.

It includes the following upgrades:

The Vampire Magician Challenge Pack includes 10 new challenges that were inspired by how our community have been playing the game.  Each challenge requires you to wear the Vampire Magician disguise while taking down targets using a range of different methods.

Continued improvements to load times
The improvements will be most notable when loading The Showstopper mission in Paris and we're already working on improving all loading times even more.

Improved responsiveness for in-game menus and image loading
We've implemented an image caching system that will improve responsiveness and loading times for all images in the game menu.

Fixed issues with scoring
Primarily, this fixes an issue that resulted in many players earning a “0 second” time bonus and an incorrect score of 210,000. A leaderboard reset will be implemented at a later date.

Continued improvements to connectivity
Server stability improvements.

Missing 'Requiem Pack' items have been restored
For those affected, these items will now be available to choose from the planning screen again.

Fixed numerous issues that were causing crashes
General improvements to game stability.
