Were you worried by the somewhat action-oriented trailers foreshadowing he fifth comming of our favourite slaphead assassin? Were you concerned by Instinct - the glowing overlay that allows Agent 47 to see enemy positions and patrol paths? Do you hate HUDs? Well, chill Winston. Everything is going to be ok.
IO Interactive have announced that the game's Purist mode - which removes Instinct and the detailed HUD - will be unlocked from the start. So if you want to hurtle headlong into the stealthy fray without any assistance whatsoever, you can do so straight from the word go.
“It seems voicing your concern helps from time to time,” came word on the developers' forum.
“I’ve just heard back from the team that Purist mode is now designed to be unlocked from the get go. Unless something critical happens, I feel confident that you can all get your butts handed to you from the first playthrough.”
Ooooh yes! See, sometimes devs do listen if you're vocal enough...for a good cause that is. [via VG247]
