The HITMAN update on 31 January will make life a little harder for Agent 47.

When the update drops, a new Professional Difficulty level will be added to the game with tweaked game mechanics to create an “entirely new game experience” and AI behaviour.

The update specifically targets items and players carrying suspicious items will be noticed by NPCs. NPC clothing can also be damaged depending on how you take out NPCs wearing them making disguises more obvious. There will also be new security camera rules and limited saves to make things harder.

The Professional Difficulty can only be unlocked on reaching Mastery Level 20 for each location. There will also be separate leaderboards for the new difficulty setting.

Sounds like HITMAN is about to become even more challenging.
