Hitman: Absolution Patch to Tweak Disguises

Hitman: Absolution has been in the hands of critics and gamers for just over a week now, and despite it receiving mostly great reviews, the hardcore fanbase has been quite vocal about some of the changes made to the series with this latest instalment. (Hitman: Absolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Theres not much point in wearing a disguise in the new Hitman, you raise too much suspicion, im glad there going to fix it

Honestly, ive almost finished Hitman, its the most straight forward Hitman game of them all, im enjoying it, but not as much as I did the older games

Yea, it's straight-forward for those who only care about completing the story and moving on to something else, but that's not what Hitman is really about. Each level has multiple challenges to execute - adding tons of replay value on a game with already high replay value. The game is a beast and I'm having a blast discovering new ways for my targets to meet their demise over and over again.

Great for everyone else, but I had to deal with the annoying disguise system as I beat the game on Normal. I managed to Silent Assassin a lot of the levels, but it was crazy annoying.

i found it so hard to get silent assassin in this game the point system annoyed the hell out of me

I started the game on hard mode, but mission 6 was a bit too hard to blend in. Put it on normal ;P, but i'm on mission 9 now, so can't wait for this patch!

Im playing on hard, so far its been doable (although lots of retry's)although im only at the place where you protect a certain someone in a nunnery, is that by mission 6?
Mystickay86  +   907d ago
Mission 6 is the one where you have to get the "Fuses". I tried hard, but kept on retrying a lot. I switched to normal and I believe they move the fuses to a easier position
pr0digyZA  +   907d ago
Lol, thats exactly where I am right now, it is tricky I manage to get two of them then I get to the pharmacy area and get caught as everyone is so close. Will try get through it... I've got to.

if you go past the guy getting an ass kicking and down the other stairs there is a vent you can time it so they are talking and can move past them before they start moving again

Give purist mode a shot. Purely stealthing Attack of Saints... probably the most infuriating level on that mode.

Mission 6 is doable on hard without disguises i did but it took me a while. for the last one you have to subdue the guy by the door and wait for the other guy to come check on him ,hide and then they all leave so just get the fuse and go

sometimes i don't know why they add this feature , it's pointless in this game , instinct in professional last only few seconds , mission 13 was hard as hell , i killed everyone to move on xD ...

the disguises bring suspicious can work in some ways. but wen every cop knows u. or wen wearing a disguise with a mask and they cans till tell its u, not cool. i mean if it were an area where ur a janitor and theres only 3 janitors in th elevel okay. but wen theres; 30 cops and all 30 know the other 29, not cool.

wait a fucking minute in the article it says " for pc gamers" so wat the pc gets an update. but consoles dont. even tho many of the pc gamers will pirate this game? wow. IOI ur just plain dumb i dont know how else to put it
benjimino  +   907d ago
I should clarify. When the article refers to "PC gamers" it is talking about the forum post that contained links to some "third-party fixes".

The Hitman PC Community took it upon themselves to apply these fixes and that is why those links were for PC gamers only.

The patch will be for PC, 360 and PS3, as far as we know.

Shut the hell up, console gamers pirate just as much as PC gamers now.

Actually, it's easier to pirate on consoles because the game gets leaked way earlier than PC.

While it's comforting to learn that they're listening to the gamers, I'm still up in arms about what made them decide to change something that didn't need to be in the first place.

Furthermore, I don't understand their animosity toward those applying modifiers to the PC version to alter the disguise system. They purchased the game, and PC mods have never been a problem before, so why remove the links and make it so they cannot be reposted? Maybe some people don't want to wait for the official update, and maybe people just want to install a certain mod to make the disguise system the way they (the individual gamer) wants it to be? It's not a big deal at all, IO. Get your priorities in check.

Finally i m murdering my way on hard caus the fu*king disguise system
BananaEatingSquid  +   906d ago
Thank god! Lol, I like this game, but wow. I don't know how the hell they managed to recognize me half the time wearing some of those disguises. I beat the game, but I always ended up having to kill everyone in every level instead of getting silent assassin.

It's irritating that everyone in the same disguise gets suspicious even for afar.Anyway,I've already beaten the game,and I loved all the missions.Might do some missions again,where I couldn't get Silent Assassin.
