Hitman 2 update 1.19 is now rolling out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players. According to the official Hitman 2 1.19 patch notes, the latest update resolves various bug fixes and gameplay changes. Apart from this, Hitman 2 version 1.19 also includes a brand new location and two Special Assignment missions for Expansion Pass owners.
Haven Island DLC will be approximately 3.5 GB and Special Assignments Pack 2 will be approximately 8.5 GB, due to including two locations in the pack. On PC, the combined download size is approximately 10GB.
Previously, July update was released with a new Sniper Assassin Map: Siberia (for expansion Pass owners) and more. Unfortunately, since the last patch, many players are still experiencing a number of issues when trying to play the game. Today’s Hitman 2 version 1.19 is expected to fix a few of these issues.
Item Labels – Added clear, color-coded labels to items that make them easier to see at a glance when selecting them in the in-game inventory. For example, the Chloroform Flask will have the ‘Consumed Poison’ label and a purple ‘Sedative’ label.
Accident KO’s – Hitman 2 1.19 made a change so that NPC’s that were knocked out / pacified by an accident and then found by another NPC would cause the Silent Assassin rating to be failed.
Suit You – Hitman 2 version 1.19 fixed a community reported issue where The Summer Suave Suit (Hot Summer) and the Cashmerian suit does not count as a ‘suit’ with regards to challenges and Contracts Mode.
Mission Story Shutdown – Hitman 2 update 1.19 fixed a community reported issue where elements of Mission Story guidance could be encountered even when it was disabled in the Options Menu.
Bank Blocker – Fixed a community-reported issue in New York where items that were placed or dropped under the bank truck could not be retrieved.
Bank Reverb – Fixed an issue that could cause some dialogue in New York to occur with higher than expected reverb.
The Void – Hitman 2 update 1.19 closed a gate to the Upside Down that could be found in New York when opening the door to the break room.
Bank Robber – Fixed an issue where Agent 47 could rob the Bank in New York with just his finger guns. Alternatively, we have fixed an issue where 47 could drop a weapon whilst aiming and then continue ‘aiming’ without the weapon. This was only possible when the Weapon Aim setting was toggled on.
4-star SA – Fixed an issue where a 4-star Silent Assassin rating could be achieved when 47 is spotted/noticed by targets before eliminating them.
Illegal Action – As part of a continuous effort to improve the overall experience of the in-game HUD, we have made a change to the description of illegal items in the interaction wheel. That’s the box that appears when you have chosen to perform interaction and need to choose what item you want to use. Previously, an illegal action would say ‘Executing this action while visible to others will get you into trouble’. We’ve simplified this to simply say ‘Illegal Action’.
Smooth Scroll – Hitman 2 version 1.19 made a quality-of-life change to the text scrolling so that it’s now smooth as butter.
Inconsistent Sniper Scores – Hitman 2 update 1.19 has fixed an issue that could cause inconsistency in the score during a co-op match in Sniper Assassin.
Flash Crash – Fixed an issue where PS4 players could encounter a crash when equipping both new items from the Smart Casual Pack in their loadout.
Ghost Crash – Fixed an issue on Xbox One where a multiplayer error in Ghost Mode could be caused when sending an invite to another player.
Location Division – Made a small tweak to the Destination menu to better separate the sandbox locations from the Sniper Assassin maps.
Legacy: A House Built on Janbiya – Fixed an issue where the ‘Mission Mastery’ challenge in Marrakesh > A House Built on Sand would not be completed, despite players completing the requirements. To earn progression on this challenge, players will need to complete all Mission Stories and 5 Assassination challenges.
Illegal Action – Hitman 2 1.19 fixed an issue that could cause an edge case scenario where players who purchased a Location Pack (e.g Miami Pack) and then the Expansion Pass were unable to purchase the Upgrade Pack and therefore access to the remaining locations in HITMAN 2.
Where It’s Due, Part Two – We have updated the in-game credits to include the work done on our new content (Haven Island & new Special Assignments) as well as new members of the team.
