We are just over a month away from the premiere of Hitman 2, the new project of IO Interactive. Now that we are so close to its launch, the studio decided to share more details, such as a level of difficulty for the most hardcore players.
In a blog post, IO Interactive revealed that Hitman has always been characterized as a difficult game. That is why with this title, they decided to make it more flexible and accessible. Thanks to this, it will have 3 levels of difficulty that will offer something to both novice players and those who are experts in the adventures of Agent 47.
The first degree of difficulty will be Casual, which will allow players to have fun “without fear of failing.” On the other hand, we have Professional, level of difficulty detected by Hitman 2. According to IO Interactive, the players who select it will have the feeling of being a real murderer. The last level of difficulty is called Master and it is designed for the player looking for a real challenge. Here, the NPC will be more attentive to their surroundings, besides that the combat will be “extremely difficult”.
On the other hand, IO Interactive also gave details about the progression in Hitman 2. According to the company, one of its novelties will be experience points for performance. It is a system that will reward you with a small amount of XP when you perform actions such as hiding a body or removing someone with stealth. In addition, you can get experience by completing challenges or completing missions.
Finally, IO Interactive announced that in the coming days it will share more news related to the locations of Hitman 2. We will be aware of it and we will inform you when we know more about it.
Hitman 2 will debut on November 13 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
