HITMAN Episode 2 Release Date and 1.03 Update


From the email sent from Square-Enix:

Two important Hitman updates for you today:
  • Square Enix and IO announced the release date for Hitman Episode 2 (Sapienza) — Tuesday, April 26. 
  • IO also released a 1.03 update for console versions of Hitman. The patch will come to PC with platform-specific updates soon.


  • Hitman 1.03 Update Notes
    • 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.
