Agent 47, the sly, genetically-enhanced agent, is coming back better than ever. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive shared that the Hitman HD Enhanced Collection, a compilation of two classic Hitman titles remastered: Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution, is sneaking its way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 11. The collection will only be available digitally for $59.99.
Players will have the ability to play both games in glorious 4K resolution and 60 fps, and the remasters will include many other improvements, such as increased texture resolution, upscale support, improved lighting, and updated controls. Below is the complete list of updated features, found on IO Interactive’s website page for the collection:
- 4K visuals at 60 frames per second
- Increased texture resolution
- Upgraded texture formats
- Upscale support
- Heightened shadow map and mirror resolutions
- Improved lighting
- Updated controls for a more fluid experience
Hitman: Blood Money originally released back in 2006 for PlayStation 2, Xbox, Xbox 360, and PC. In the game, players experience a globe-trotting adventure and face-off against a group of assassins known as “The Franchise.” Hitman: Absolution, on the other hand, launched in 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The title focuses more on a cinematic and personal story of the Hitman series protagonist Agent 47 as he pursues redemption across 20 intense missions.
The latest Hitman title, Hitman 2, is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Author’s Take: I’ve unfortunately only played a couple of hours of both Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution. Since I can’t seem to find my copy of both games anywhere, I’m definitely planning on playing the Hitman HD Enhanced Collection.
