I haven’t played any of today’s escalations yet, because it’s 1am lel, but I love that they’re not just doing plain old assassination objectives. I’m sure some people absolutely hate it, but I like that they’re doing something different

Guess we’ll see how it plays out in practice though

All these have been above average imo :grin:

And now IO is stopping releasing escalations… :upside_down_face:

Well they’ve still got contracts coming out so :man_shrugging:

Is this a fact or your personal prognosis?

I mean I just re-read what IOs officially said and I guess it’s just my assumption then. But what they’ve said is

“Our 2020 plans for HITMAN 2 live content will focus on continuing to add Featured Contracts as well as introduce Community-curated Contracts into the game”

So not necessarily stopping escalations but less focus at least? My previous comment was erroneous :joy:

I’ve got a feeling I will fail this just out of stupid habits, running through a door

I would say a fact, because Travis said nothing about new content in 2020 in last stream.
They been asked about Legacy Escalations and Challenge Packs - Travis literally said ‘no’.
On the desk for 2020 Featured (Community Curated) Contracts exclusively. That’s all

I can’t complete this because I can’t pick up the Golden Idol in Cassidy’s safe. The prompt for picking it up it just doesn’t appears.

Try from different angle.

Already did. Tried even shooting at it and moving it with explosives. This is on XB1.

Fixed: I just left the golden idol for last and I was able to pick it up. I don’t see anything in the description about that or anything. Weird as hell.

Ironically the last level made the Wilson property the hardest one to infiltrate. Tried different strategies to no avail and got slightly frustrated until I remembered something important: panicked civilians ignore you when you’re trespassing. So one “controlled” rubber duck explosion later it turned from frustrating to a walk in the park. :grinning:

Overall a good escalation. I like it that IO is trying to do new and creative stuff with their escalations.

Can xbox players confirm that it’s not possible to go for the gold idol first?

We have 2 players saying it’s not possible.

Not sure how people can’t pick it up, I managed to complete it just fine. I’m on the Xbox One S if that matters.

I’m on Xbox and the pick up prompt refuses to appear. Is there some hidden sequencing or a correct way of opening the safe?

EDIT: As far as I can tell, this only affects some Xbox users and the fix appears to be random. After dinner, I tried a few more times alternating between going after the egg first or egg last. Eventually, I was able to pick up the egg (during an “egg first” attempt), and there wasn’t anything I did differently to explain why it worked that time.
