Two of Square Enix’s biggest titles have just crossed over on mobile devices leading to one of the best and most enjoyable smash-ups to date. In the new free update for Hitman: Sniper on Android and iOS, players get to see Agent 47 head over to the Mediterranean republic of Medici, where Rico Rodriguez has already been hard at work disrupting a fascist regime’s operations.
If you’ve been playing Hitman, you know there’s a few new things now available if you’ve logged into your game. As of today the Vampire Magician Challenge Pack is now available, improvements to load times have been made, and quite a few more fixes have been released with it. For players on all platforms getting ready to play the game, you’ll see some heavy improvements on the title.
The new update includes the Vampire Magician Challenge Pack, which includes 10 new challenges inspired by how the community has been playing the game. This is a nice little for those who are wanting to see how the game develops in the future. As players undergo these challenges, they’ll find themselves wearing the games new “Vampire Magician” disguise, which will allow players to take down targets using a range of new methods.
As stated, load times have been heavily improved for fans playing the game. Most of these improvements will be notable when loading the mission “The Showstopper”. With that, they’re also heavily working on improving all load times within the game even more. With it menus have been made more responsive while loading images that allows for the games image caching system to improve.
Read below for the rest of the fixes:
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.
A dedicated thread on the Official HITMAN Forums for Update 1.03 has been created.
Please join the discussion there with your feedback.
With the game being an episodic title, the game has already seen some massive changes for the length of time it has been out. These changes have also seen quite a few fixes, which is nice to see, and highly appreciated by fans wanting things to work.
