Huge Hitman update makes unlocks work offline

"We determine who we are by what we do."

IO is today putting out a big update for the latest Hitman game that makes unlocks work offline.


The update means all unlockable items earned when connected to the game's servers are saved to an offline profile, so they can be used in Offline Mode. This was one of the biggest complaints among players with the game because if the servers were down and you wanted to play offline, none of your unlocks would be available. So, the update is welcome.

Items include all mastery items, so weapons, gear, starting/pickup locations as well as Elusive Target suit rewards and Challenge Pack unlocks. It's worth noting you must be connected to the game servers in order to acquire new unlocks.

The Hitman November update, which weighs in at 2.4GB on PS4, 13.66GB on Xbox One and 2.1GB on PC, follows the release of the season finale, episode 6 Hokkaido. IO said it's the first in a series of planned major updates that will lead up to the physical disc release of the episodic series on 31st January 2017 and beyond.

The patch notes are over at the Hitman website.
