Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Gets Unlockable Difficulty Mode


Developer Dennaton Games has announced that it will be adding an unlockable hard mode for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.

Dennaton Games’ Dennis Wed said that the hard mode for each level will be unlocked once the player has earned a C+ grade or higher. Hard mode will make enemies more difficult to take down, and it may even take away some abilities such as being able to lock onto enemies.

According to Wedin, the decision to add hard mode came from fan complaints that the first game was too easy.

“So we wanted to give them something more,” he said. “Also, all the players trying to beat the world record or top the leaderboards — we wanted to give them more stuff to be good at.”

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is scheduled to release 2014 on PS4, Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux.
