Agent 47 Is Returning Later This Month
Square Enix and IO Interactive have announced that Agent 47 will be back on the scene come April 26 when he lands in Sapienza for his next mission.
But alongside that news is that console players today will get a new patch that will fix a host of issues and also deliver new challenges. PC players can expect a patch in the coming weeks, with a patch log to cover its changes soon.
Some of the key updates in the patch are shown below, but be sure to read up on all the changes in the patch 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.
