I know its just a hd remake. But is there any chance io will tweak the ai for silent assassin and blood money?? That would be amazing considering the ai were shortcomings of those games.

I doubt they will touch anything. As much as I love these games, a lot more than Absolution, it sadly looks like a quick cash in riding off the back of Absolution's success. While I will still be buying it for the nostalgia, I would only expect an up-scale in resolution over the originals. If there is any new features, retailers did a bad job at mentioning them.

I do believe that there have been some minor tweaks. Very small level stuff though. I'll look at getting a list of these if enough people are interested. It'll be in the new year though.

I basically just want it for the improved visuals and trophies. Anything more than that is just a huge bonus for me. I love contracts and blood money, but I had them on ps2 and the graphics havent aged well. So a good polish to the visuals and Im a happy guy. Already have mine preordered. The cover looks sweet. Reminds me of an old 007 film poster

I really wish they would just tweak the AI. They were horrendous in Hitman 2. Pretty bad in Hitman Blood Money as well. But I think more importantly they need to make 47 Walk faster in Hitman 2 and Contracts, he was way too slow in those games.

I am hoping that all these improvments are made too , yea better AI and a quicker hitman would be perfect .

Will we be able to choose our own equipment, like we could in blood money? Was disappointed absolution didn't have that feature.

I would be happy if they fine tune some annoyances but I cannot see it happening

I'm disappointed. Because of the fact that just a month before Absolution came out, I bought the Hitman Collection which has 3 games. Codename 47 has DirectSound issues that make it impossible to play certain missions when your computer sound device is active, therefore the only way to finish the mission is to disable sound entirely. Silent Assassin worked perfectly once, and after that hasn't worked and apparently never will.

So I already bought the games that the HD collection has, except for Contracts which in its present form is about as legal as heroine to buy and sell. And 2/3rds of the package I bought is not working. So when the HD collection comes, I need to repurchase the pack just to get a functional version of a game that I already own, a legal version of a game that should not be illegal in the first place, an extra copy of a game that works just fine, and no fixed fuctional version of the other game in the series that doesn't work properly.

Just like with the Hitman Collection, I'll end up having paid for 3 games, recieving one.

I am rebuying the games as well. I had them on ps2 and look forward to rebuying the games for the improvements. What is your point exactly? It has been known for quite awhile than an HD Collection was in the works.

They said at 5:20 they're improving Blood Money, is that still the case?

47's face in BM is kinda funny looking, and also the one-two punch seems so bland compared to Absolutions nice takedowns.

HAHA yeah as crucial as the headbutt followed by two punches were, it looked pretty dumb.

I hope they fixed the disguises in Silent Assassin.Those were worse than the ones from Absolution Pre-patched.

A shame that Codename 47, arguably the worst in the series, is not included, and therefore won't get its many flaws fixed. The control system in that game is atrocious. Press shift to run forward? Press the use key to activate objects, get diguises, drag bodies, pick up objects, equip objects and equip weapons, using a contextual action menu that can only be scrolled with the mouse wheel? Also, you can't move while sniping, and when zooming with a sniper scope your view distance increases, therefore you can only see the general direction of your target when zooming, and you can't adjust your firing position while zooming, so you'll just need to disengage zoom and guess where you should stand in order to get a good firing position.

The only thing bad about the disguises in Silent Assassin was the completely random "close call" and random guards that were suspicious about your from miles away. It's not fun when a random guard can suddenly home in on you and flip a coin about whether or not he raises an alarm.

And other bad things were unrelated to the disguises themselves. For example the combination of the 5 minute knockouts, extremely slow casual walking speed, and inability to remain undetected when running in a disguise. Which basically meant that you needed to sneak through the entire level until you found a spare disguise just lying around. That actually is worse than in Absolution, because being seen even a little is instant game over, unlike in Absolution where there is a short timer.

Like in "Hidden Valley/At the Gates",were if a guard saw you even miles away,he would automatically run up to you and get alerted,even tough the guard disguise has a mask and googles.But in the next level,"Shogun Showdown",you can get pretty close to the guards without them saying anything.
The main problem disguises have in SA is that the suspicion is completly random.

I have a suggestion for a new feature... let's see... *clears throat*

Release the pack on PC! Seriously! That's literally the only platform that requires a re-release in the first place! The PC version of Silent Assassin does not work on PC! How much more obvious can this be?

And the only problem is the D3D renderer. If IO can make Silent Assassin work on Microsoft's DX9-based X360 infrastructure, then they can make the PC version of the same game work perfectly fine on a Windows PC too! And with almost no extra effort!

Its the hurry up and just get it done strategy coined and perfected by IOI.

We were told that there would be a list of minor tweaks and it is rumored that the game may be enhanced with corrupted save feature but neither have been confirmed yet.
