Upcoming Hitman Update to Add Professional Difficulty

To celebrate its release on physical media, Square Enix has announced that Hitman will be receiving a brand new difficulty to challenge the most dedicated of assassins.

This “Professional” difficulty setting will come with enhanced artificial intelligence behaviour, strict item rules, advanced security camera logic, limited saves (a staple of past Hitman titles) and no auto-saving, disguises can only be obtained by clean kills, and even mastery rewards. This means you’ll be comprised if you’re caught on cameras, guards will be more thorough when searching, your health will regenerate much slower and there are even fewer disguises to use.

The first season of Hitman is available digitally on PS4, Xbox One and PC, with this update and physical copies being available January 31.
