HITMAN – November update detailed, releases later today

IO Interactive will release later today a brand new update for HITMAN. This new patch includes improvements across the board, will fix different issues across all locations that previously resulted in the game crashing or becoming unstable, and adds the ability for 47 to pull people over balconies or out of windows, when he is hanging on a ledge or below the balcony/window.

In addition, this patch will fix some PC-specific issues, such as an issue where the selected GPU in the Game Launcher is not the one used by the game and an issue where the framerate could stutter during combat, primarily on DX12 setups.

Furthermore, with this update, all unlockable items that are earned when connected to the game’s servers, are now also saved to an ‘offline profile’, meaning that they can be used when in Offline Mode. Items include all mastery items; including weapons, gear, starting/pickup locations as well as Elusive Target suit rewards and Challenge Pack unlocks.

This update will be around 2.1GB in size, and you can read its complete changelog below.
