HITMAN Adding Offline Unlock Access

The November Update Release Notes have details on a patch going live today in HITMAN, IO Interactive's episodic installment in their assassination series (thanks Eurogamer). This will come to all platforms, and word is the Windows update will be 2.1 GB. The post also looks further down the road with mentions of what will be part of a December update along with a November content release schedule. Here's a bit on the plan, including how unlocked items will be available in offline mode, better feedback on when you're being silent but deadly, and more:

Offline Profile
All unlockable items that are earned when connected to the game's servers, are now also saved to an 'offline profile', meaning that they can be used when in Offline Mode.
Items include all mastery items; including weapons, gear, starting/pickup locations as well as Elusive Target suit rewards and Challenge Pack unlocks.
Note: You must be connected to the game servers in order to acquire new unlocks.

Stability Sweep
Fixed different issues across all locations that previously resulted in the game crashing or becoming unstable.

Opportunity Completion Checkmark
We've added functionality to mark an opportunity with a checkmark when it has been successfully completed, similar to how we show that a challenge has been completed.
This will show you the completed opportunities at-a-glance and make it easier to track completion when trying to achieve the achievements/trophies linked to opportunities.

Silent Assassin Rating Display
The scoring screen now displays "Silent Assassin" when a player completes a mission with that rating.

Major Update to Statistics Page
The 'Statistics' page has been overhauled with a new visual design that displays the challenge completion, mastery level completion and overall location completion.
