IO Interactive has responded to the call of fans by ensuring Hitman: Absolution's Purist Mode will be available to play straight away.
"It seems voicing your concern helps from time to time," commented Eidos.
"I've just heard back from the team that purist mode is now designed to be unlocked from the get go. now, unless something critical happens, I feel confident that you can all get your butts handed to you from the first playthrough."
Hitman: Absolution will sneak into shops on November 20th for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
