The Halloween Pack pack for HITMAN goes live today giving you a chance to try it for free, which includes full access to the Colorado location from Episode 5.

The HITMAN Halloween Pack is a FREE download that invites you to Colorado and gives you full access to everything the location has to offer for a limited time. You’ll be able to play the “Freedom Fighters” mission, all of the Escalation Contracts and Featured Contracts in Colorado as well as use Contract Mode to create your own Contracts.

They're also doing some server maintenance today that will last until around 1PM UTC. Once that's over, there will be 10 new Featured Contracts to complete, some of which may involve some spooky stuff.

Massive fan of the game, had so much fun with it. Lost a good many hours in each mission, doing so many different things it gives you such a surprising amount of freedom. I really do hope Feral Interactive team up with IO Interactive again for a native port of HITMAN 2!

Check it out on Steam. Looks like it's on sale too for those who want to complete their collection. Worth noting though, it may work out cheaper to pick up the Humble Monthly which has HITMAN along with 7 Days to Die and Hollow Knight.

Hmm I fired up the native version and got weird blocky visual glitches/artefacts on nvidia with 396.54.09

Changing the options didn't help.

The windows version in wine with DXVK runs much better and smoother without any glitches. But it is unable to connect so only offline is available :/

Steam really needs to offer an option to switch to the windows version with proton for these cases.

I'm experiencing the same problem.

Any way the Steam Win and the Feral could share space on disk? like. Is there any folders that could be shared through simbolic links ?
I have space left atm but it would be nice to not have to have 2 versions installed.

Sorry for the late reply, thanks to xpander69 we managed to fix it : https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/9pwzhd/graphical_issues_with_hitman_2016/

use environment variable __GL_GlslUseCollapsedArrays=0 to fix this issue.
So in the launch options add __GL_GlslUseCollapsedArrays=0 %command% and it should run without glitches

As for sharing space, the directory layouts on linux and windows are a bit different but the game files inside runtime/ seem to be the same.

So on Linux under Hitman™/share/data/runtime

So it might make sense to share the runtime folder.
