    Seeing this reminded me that I preordered the first season and abandoned it after episode 2. The game's mechanically solid but I don't know, it didn't hook me like how Blood Money sucked all my free time back in 2006... :cry:

    6 levels total again. Lol. What the fuck happened? I'm pretty sure Blood Money had more than 10.

    Awesome.
    I'm glad it's not episodic but the fact that there's about 3 billion different 'editions' that you need a chart to explain is really lame. I'm excited, but I hope the map quality will be high like Hitman 2016, sure seems so from the screenshots. Dual silverballers seem to be missing, but at least the briefcase is back. Also kinda curious what the Expansion 1 and 2 mean, since to me it sounds like content they had to cut from the standard edition to make the silver and gold editions be more content packed.
    I'm definitely buying it if or when I get a new PC (or console, since these PC RAM and GPU prices are never falling).

    Watch me buy this at 50% off.

    No one gives a crap about bonus items, these eventually get lumped up in some Director's Cut Full Package Complete Edition a year after release.

    No one gives a crap about online coop whack a mole. We've played it enough when we were 7 on a tv console.

    Are weapons more meaningful, or are they mostly still reskins that handle and function the same? No info.

    Are exploits with coins and with bumping into people shut down? No info.

    Are there going to be native languages when the context doesn't require English? No info but most probably not.

    Will it still require always-online to get unlocked gear/options like Hitman 2016 apparently still does? This is a deal-breaker for me if so.

    Looks superb. Very high quality, the new music sounds great too, it sounds like the same guy making it as Hitman 2016. I might get a lot of shit for this but I loved the music in Hitman 2016 and I don't miss Jesper Kyd as much as some do, although he was sometimes absolutely great I feel that the ambient music that plays when you are just scouting around and haven't progressed far yet was often just extremely annoying. I never felt that way with Hitman 2016 as I had with Hitman 2 and Blood Money.

    I really hope they let us toss/throw equipped items. I've fond memories of sneaking weapons/items in Blood Money by tossing them over fences.

    I think that's something they want to purposefully avoid to not have the player break the level design.

    What. Hitman is all about breaking the levels.

    It really isn't, it's more about just applying intended game mechanics in clever ways, as Hitman is a sandbox game at core. Normal players and even super fans will rarely purposefully break the game unless they are speedrunning. Besides, you can still do that, it's just that they didn't want the regular player to figure out you can throw your gun and make all the guard checkpoints checkpointless. The clever players will still figure out a way.

    The second one isn't bad (although way too ambient, not enough activity), but playing a shitton of Hitman 2 when I was younger that first one drove me INSANE. It was annoying as fuck and I hated everything about it, when I wrote about how I hated some of Jesper Kyd's ambient early level stuff that one specific song was ringing in my head. Not to say I hate all of his music, fuck no, a lot of his work on Contracts and the Jungle Exploration theme in C47 was great.
    But yes, I think that Hitman 2016's OST is really good. The song "Showstopper" being my favorite probably in the entire series because it has the perfect spy movie esque vibe and when it transitions from exploration to combat and back it's just so well done.
