Square Enix and IO Interactive have recently released a new update for Hitman, the latest update improves on the games loading times as well as adds new challenges for gamers to complete. Included in this update is The Vampire Magician Challenge Pack, which includes 10 new challenges that were influenced by how the community has played the game so far.

According to the IO Interactive, each challenge offered requires you to wear the Vampire Magician disguise while eliminating targets. As this new update also improves the responsiveness of in-game menus, patches up issues with scoring, the server stability, and restores the missing Requiem Pack items.

Below is the entire list of new features included in the update:

  • Continued improvements to load times
    The improvements will be most notable when loading The Showstopper mission in Paris and we’re already working on improving all loading times even more.
  • Improved responsiveness for in-game menus and image loading
    We’ve implemented an image caching system that will improve responsiveness and loading times for all images in the game menu.
  • Fixed issues with scoring
    Primarily, this fixes an issue that resulted in many players earning a “0 second” time bonus and an incorrect score of 210,000. A leaderboard reset will be implemented at a later date.
  • Continued improvements to connectivity
    Server stability improvements.
  • Missing ‘Requiem Pack’ items have been restored
    For those affected, these items will now be available to choose from the planning screen again.
