Hitman to add Professional Difficulty level on January 31 By Erren Van Duine on January 25, 2017 at 9:35 PM

Square Enix and Io-Interactive are planning an all-new difficulty mode for Hitman starting on January 31. Issued as a free update along the disc version’s launch, Professional Difficulty will offer a tougher challenge for players.

The new difficulty mode includes strict item rules so players will be noticed carrying suspicious items, disguises that can be ruined depending how you take out the NPC wearing them, new security camera rules, limited save games and a whole lot more. Everything needed to challenge even the top players. To unlock Professional Difficulty Level players will need to reach Mastery Level 20 for each location and there are separate leaderboards between difficulty levels. Professional Difficulty Level will be available for all main Story missions only, excluding Prologue.

Hitman The Complete First Season is due out on January 31 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
