Hitman Episode 6: Hokkaido is now out, taking Agent 47 to Japan where he must locate two important targets. As is his habit, Agent 47 once again becomes the messenger of death, hunting down his targets mercilessly.

Episode 6: Hokkaido also brings a series of fixes and improvements aimed at making the gaming experience smoother. However, this Hitman Hokkaido also brings issues of its own as many gamers already report.

Hitman Episode 6: Hokkaido bugs on Windows PC and Xbox One

Buggy cutscenes

Gamers complain that cutscenes are always buggy and affected by audio issues.

The cutscenes were almost always buggy. While the audio actually worked for me on the last one. The voice actors sounded like they were talking in a box (the one where they are riding a train at the end). But looks wise, I liked them

Game won’t start

Some gamers report they can’t launch Hitman Episode 6: Hokkaido without offering any details about this bug. Since players didn’t describe the problem, it’s likely the game window simply closes without any error message.

FPS rate drops

Gamers also complain that the game’s FPS rate drops to as low as 28, only to spike back to 60 a few minutes later. Unfortunately, the FPS rate doesn’t remain stable as the same drop-spike process frequently repeats itself.

FPS drops from 60 to 50, 40, 30 or even 28, then returns to 60 or around that. It can around 45 FPS average. Only in some places at location fps =60 , it is place with minimum people and details. I dont believe that my pc specs is not enough for that game. My system: i7 3770k, gtx 1070, 16gb ram

Poor graphics quality

Xbox One gamers feel that Hitman Hokkaido was launched in a hurry and its overall graphics quality leaves much to be desired.

The overall game play is okay. The graphics are not good except for the cinematic videos. The terrain is glitchy and the distant environment looks like xbox 360 graphics. These episodes were rushed on development which reflects in the quality. Also I HATE the confusing main menu, needs to be simplified. And I just installed the last episode update and I cant load my game.

As you can see, the list of Hitman Episode 6: Hokkaido issues is quite short. As a result, the majority of gamers will be able to enjoy a smooth gaming experience while playing the last episode of the first series.
