Hitman 2 update 1.22 is now rolling out on PS4 and Xbox One. According to the official Hitman 2 version 1.22 changelog, the latest November update resolves various issues related to crashing, stuttering/lag, framerate drop, matchmaking, and more. In addition, the Hitman 2 update 1.22 also includes title stability and performance improvements on all platforms.
Previously, a big update was released with character balancing, gameplay changes and a long list of bug fixes. Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing a number of issues while playing the game. Today’s Hitman 2 version 1.22 update is expected to fix a few of these issues. Check out more details below.
Hitman 2 update 1.22 fixed an issue where the game could crash when detonating the Remote Emetic Gas Device whilst it was inside a briefcase, and then attempting to throw the briefcase at someone.
We have fixed an issue in Mumbai where Agent 47 would be prevented from entering the roof when dressed as a metal worker, even though he would not be considered trespassing when using a different route to the roof.
Hitman 2 1.22 fixed a community–reported issue where the detonator for the Remote Emetic Gas Device was not localised in some languages.
Hitman 2 version 1.22 fixed a community-reported issue where items in the Beach Stash in Mumbai were misaligned to the interaction prompt.
Fixed a community-reported issue where the Kalmer-1 pistol was using an incorrect name and description in Polish and Italian.
Time to Get Down
Fixed an issue where the ‘Vertigo’ challenge from the Thriller Night Challenge Pack would not unlock in Contracts Mode, despite the conditions being met.
Fixed a community-reported issue where the pirate map parts in Haven Island were described using incorrect grammar.
Hitman 2 update 1.22 made a change to the localised name of “Haven Island” for players using the Russian language, based on community feedback and input from our Russian localisation experts.
Plumber’s Problems (Legacy)
Fixed an issue where the ‘Tightening the Screws’ challenge from the Plumber’s Apprentice Challenge Pack would pop-up in-game as completed, despite the conditions not actually being met and the challenge remaining locked.
Patient Zero (Legacy)
Fixed an issue where players on Xbox One would disconnect from the game’s server after successfully completing the Patient Zero mission in the HITMAN 1 GOTY campaign.
Hitman 2 1.22 have added support for AMD’s FidelityFX Contrast-Adaptive Sharpening. This algorithm recovers high frequency features lost during temporal anti-aliasing to provide a rich, detailed image. All players can take advantage of this support, regardless of their choice of graphics card. This can be toggled between Off, Weak, Moderate or Strong in the ‘Graphics’ Menu.
DX12 CPU Usage
We have reduced CPU usage, which can improve framerates in certain CPU bound situations. In addition, GPU memory usage has been significantly reduced on NVIDIA cards.
DX12 Shader Cache
Hitman 2 update 1.22 have made some changes that will reduce the time it takes to launch the game on DX12, especially the first time after upgrading a graphics driver, downloading a game update or a completely fresh launch.
