A possible edit of the disguise system in Hitman Absolution is on the cards, as fans have moaned about the current set up rather a lot.
I am playing on purist and understand what they were going for. However how it was implemented more feels unfair to the player. I love Splinter Cell don't get me wrong,but hitman was more about social stealth. His weapon of stealth was disguises to fit into the social environment. This becomes to a point of too realistic and not fun. Defeats the purpose of calling it a game so much. Gamers want to goof off even if it doesn't necessarily always make sense. Enemies instantly recongnize you in disguises even if you are far away. I hear other difficulties are the same way. So I am glad this is being patched.
Yea,i think that acully ruined the game for me.Whats the point of even disguising if they recognized you in 2 seconds.I mean,they pretty much force you to go gun blazing to kill your target or get past people.... i honestly hope they just scrap the detection system for the disguises.Hope there's a mod that does this.
Im playing on Hard and dont even bother using disguises since they dont work very well I rather sneak and hide but this patch sounds really good im loving this game so far even tho blood money is much better IMO
Yeah, I was playing on one of the professional difficulties my second playthrough and it was way easier to just sneak moving from cover to cover than getting a disguise, of course, there were sections where the disguise was absolutely needed to get through using stealth tactics like that courtroom level.
Thank God. While I didn't have much of an issue with it, at least they're listening to the fans. Now all I can hope for is being able to choose which weapons to take with me during missions.
The player should also be allowed to start a level with a disguise. It's makes no sense for Agent 47 to start a mission wearing an expensive suit that would stand out in any crowd.
Ah, yes, but Agent 47 looks like a badass in this expensive suit.
Plays too much like they wre attempting to make Metal Gear Solid.
Not really MGS didnt introduce disguises until MGS 2 in 2001 in hitman its the base of the game since 2000 Hitman Absolution plays nothing Like MGS and In MGS you dont hide among the people 2 different types both good in what they Do
It's not an open sand box, pick your load out and execute a plan like the old games. Your constantly running from the police and sneaking past guards over performing dedicated hits.
^ It is still a sandbox. For the more classic type of gameplay, there's contracts mode.
Hopefully it'll be an option to change the system so the people who do like it can keep their play style intact. But this is pretty cool, devs acting on player feedback this quickly.
I hope it comes out soon i would explore all day if those disguises didn't suck balls!
I hope they release it before i finish my walkthrough, which in about 2 days !!!
Kind of glad then that I can't afford the game just yet lol. There's been a hell of a lot of games that have been hit with issues on release, it's getting tiresome.
I just want a hard save system. the checkpointing is rather unforgiving (playing on hard) when you are going for a high score run
I miss the save system from the past games, it made replaying a part just before a hit so much more fun. I don't know if the checkpoint is supposed to work this way in Absolution or if it's a glitch, but why is it when I activate a checkpoint and restart from that checkpoint, the NPCs and special items I acquired before activating it reset to their original positions on the map?
It might just be a limitation to keep the save file size small. Same thing happens with remote explosives as well. Reloading a save file will make you re-obtain the thrown explosive. I'm not sure if I like or hate checkpoints in games. It is more restrictive than manual/quick saves, but it also makes the game more interesting by forcing you to fight out of 'failed' situations rather than compulsively reloading to a previous save.
"On" the cards? Really?
Yeah because 47 cant blend in with the cards, so he has to be on them
I just want it to work. I was 25 hours into the singleplayer campaign and went back to play the next day and it said my save file is corrupt and I dont have the patience to start over especially if this is not patched. I googled it and its a known issue on both the 360 and ps3 that it corrupts the save file. I was very very very upset.
I've noticed this problem with the past few game releases lately with a game save corrupting glitch. Medal Of Honor Warfighter and Black Ops 2 have done this for me. I haven't gotten it on Hitman... yet, but I hope the devs can patch that for you guys who have gotten it very soon.
IO has acknowledged that they know about it but say they can do nothing to fix it which is horrible for those who have devoted so many hours into the game. To me this would be a game ruiner, only game it happened to me with is RSV2 multiplayer. They suspect the glitch is due to shutting down while saving but seems people are getting this problem as weird times.
Purist is very frustrating. I Just beat all the challenges on normal and replay the level on purist once every challenge is done I just finished hunter and hunted all challenged done I just hate disguising on purist just to get caught and have to do the whole lvl again and wait for the targets to do thier routes I love the game but its gives me a headache
Good news! I want to walk around dammit!
I like the idea of the new disguise system, but it doesn't really work at the moment. They need to decrease the distance that enemies wearing the same disguise can spot you. They also need to get rid of the new system when it doesn't make sense, for example the stall owners in the Chinatown square chasing you through crowds.
So im not the only one? Man i thought i just sucked, haha. Take disguise to get past guard, try to casually walk past. Guard: "Stop you violated the law! Pay the court a fine or serve your sentence, your stolen goods are now forfeit"
