Am I hyped? Maybe.
Am I hyped? Maybe.
Inb4 the stream is just Travis and Clemens asleep in bed for an hour and a half.
Hyped for the new season. Can’t wait to see their interpretation of Sloth.
Hoped we would’ve got IOI Insider on update day, but they’ve moved update day to the 15th now (could’ve been a mistake but doubt that).
Will edit my TL;DR into this message!
Yeah, I was kind of hyped that since the season ends on Sunday, we’d be getting the new Season on Monday.
Well, now it turns out there’ll be a mid-season break for a day, (aw ) but at least we can fill that time with cool new announcements and everyone’s favourite community duo in an IOI Stream! (yay )
More candid Travis monologues, please. That was some fantastic off-script work last time.
Yep happy to see them in a stream too, they give the community a valuable insight. I do hope they do a “gotcha” and update on the 14th but that’s wishful thinking.
IOI Insider - TLDR
Patch Notes (full reveal on update day - tomorrow June 15th)
Q: Who voiced the handler in Sloth?
A: Doesn’t have the information on hand.
Q: Next roadmap?
A: Less than 24 hours. Video and image during the update.
Q: What will happen tomorrow?
A: Patch and roadmap video will go out tomorrow. Maintenance will start around 11am UTC
Q: Black Hat Elusive Target
A: Contract went live without the location challenge. New players could get it after the fix. If you already completed it, a day or two the suit will appear.
Q: How is Project 007 going?
A: Not at liberty to say. Talking Hitman 3 here. It’s all good and positive.
Q: Why did you feature 3 contracts and not 10?
A: Featured contracts have unlocks now. Keeping them scaled down but giving them more love. Keep 3 but more batches. They feel more featured and hand crafted now (custom images).
Q: What about X item that I want and Hitman 2 items that got removed?
A: Feedback is noted and seen. There is a turnaround time for this. Hitman 2 items being brought back: they’re working on solutions right now.
Q: Shoulder swap!
A: Not in next patch. Constantly on the table and being discussed.
Q: Modding policy
A: No details to share. Being worked on. Gathering different department’s input, needs to be formal and official.
Q: Concept art?
A: Ingvar we see you collecting it. IOI Extra stream? Travis has dug some up. Blocktober (blocked out levels). If nothing by October, something will be done.
Q: Providence Pins on Merch
A: Someone here (IOI Studio) knows about it
Q: Plans for sniper assassin maps?
A: No plans to add more right now.
Q: The Sarajevo Six (My Children)
A: No plans to move it from PS4 Hitman 2016. Contractual reasons.

Think I missed something? Reply to me and let me know!
I hope people in Twitch chat aren’t complete dicks again.
And just incase they are, I also hope that Travis has beer on stand-by in a mini-fridge under his desk.
I wonder if Travis is going to set up a questions thread like last time.
Stream will start at 3pm CEST.
Converting 3pm CEST to your time
15 minutes im curious what the “few surprises” are
IOI Insider #2:
What I’m hoping we’ll get:
What I’m expecting:
‘a few surprises’ wild card:
For expecting add a seasonal event. Travis said last IO Insider “upcoming seasonal event”.
Nah, they are probably saving this one for Gluttony,
I predict they will bring back the Chameleon, the dude who sat in his chair and never moved
I’m going to write a TLDR, hope they talk a bit slower this time I’m no typist.
I would be so happy if they announced a few changes to Contract Mode. But don’t expect it. Also they should finally eliminate all those “transparent” walls in Congqing, it’s really annoying that NPCs see in other rooms and discover bodies.
Think it will just be a new ET, 3 new community contracts for the next season, a legacy ET and some bug fixes.
Strings in trailer theme?
Chat doesn’t seem to be improved much
It will never change
New gameplay confirmed – There’s a new Vitality meter for this Sin.
Also, yes, the lighting is different.
Fist few pictures and comments:
New gun (made of a can? like in the train level?)
Screen of the messy Dartmoor:
Vitality-Meter in action:
The mine should be a “sedative proximity”. Not really sure what that means. KO? Or just slowing down?
The Goldbrick proximity mine attracts and sedates people so it actually sounds somewhat useful.
