Do you think you have what it takes to be a Professional in Hitman? Well now’s your chance to prove it as lo-Interactive have annouced that a new, tougher difficulty level will be coming as part of the free January Update to coincide with the Hitman – The Complete First Season disc launch on January 31st.
The Professional Difficulty Level will offer players a new tougher challenge. Introducing new game features, a separate mastery track with unique rewards, tweaked game mechanics and new AI behavior, players will be introduced in to an entirely new game experience that takes no prisoners.
Other new features will include 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 and limited save games, and that’s just the start. IO-Interactive promise that there will be something 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.
