IO Interactive has announced it will release Hitman Episode 2 on April 26, which takes players to the region of Sapienza.


The fictional town situated on the southern coast of Italy has been described by the developer as “dense, full of challenges and packed with opportunities and stories.” We’ll find out more closer to launch.

Today, the previously announced Vampire Magician Challenge Pack has been made available for players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. IO said it will be released on PC “in the very near future.”

The Vampire Magician Challenge Pack includes 10 new challenges, each requiring the player to wear the Vampire Magician disguise.

Along with the pack various improvements have been made to the game. These include improvements to load times which will be “noticeable when loading The Showstopper mission in Paris.” The team is working to improving all loading times in general.

Improved responsiveness for in-game menus and image loading has also been addressed by adding a caching system that will improve responsiveness and loading times for all images in the game menu.

Issues with scoring, such as “0 second” time bonus and an incorrect score of 210,000, has been fixed, with a leaderboard reset being implemented at a later date.

Server stability improvements and general crashing fixes have been made, and Missing ‘Requiem Pack’ items have been restored.
