Update patch 1.03 is out now for Hitman for the PS4 and Xbox One platforms. The same update will be out at a later date for the PC.
One of the biggest additions to this update patch in Hitman is the “Vampire Magician Challenge Pack”. The servers have also been improved and general stability has been implemented to ensure that the game crashes less frequently than before. The rest of the notes can be seen below.
The Vampire Magician Challenge Pack: Includes 10 new challenges that were inspired by how the Hitman 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.
Missing ‘Requiem Pack’ items have been restored: For those affected, these items will now be available to choose from the planning screen again.
Hitman: Episode 1 is available now for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Episode 2 will be released later this month. Several more episodes will be out later this year.
