Today, Hitman – The Complete First Season launches onto PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the price of $59.99 USD. And to celebrate developer IO Interactive and publisher Square Enix have released a new trailer to accompany the game’s journey to retail.
As you may know, Hitman was previously only available digitally, and released via an episodic approach, meaning six different episodes launched throughout 2016. Now, all those episodes, along with some additional content, have been bundled up, and are shipping to retail stores as a physical launch.
The Complete First Season includes all of the locations and episodes from Season One; the Prologue, France, Italy, Morocco, Thailand, USA and Japan. In addition, all of the Escalation Contracts, Challenges, Opportunities and Contracts that have been created by the game’s community will be included as well as the opportunity to take on all upcoming Elusive Targets that take place from now onwards. The previous 19 Elusive Targets will not be available.
In addition to the retail launch, the following content is also launching today:
- The 3rd bonus mission, ‘Landslide’ will be released at no extra cost for owners of The Complete First Season / Upgrade Pack. You can more about this here.
- The ‘Original Soundtrack’ and ‘Making Of Documentary’ will be made available for all players. After downloading the January Update, follow the in-game instructions to link your profile to the Square Enix Members service, which will then grant you said content. If you’re on Steam, you will see both items added to your account automatically.
- The Hitman – Requiem Blood Money Pack is available for individual purchase (price point not divulged). As you may remember this was given to all players who preordered the game, and includes 3 in-game items; ‘Legacy Requiem Suit’, ‘Silenced ICA-19 Chrome pistol’ and the ‘Pale Duck’ explosive item. This pack is also included with the SteelBook Edition of the game, which you can see below.
Lastly, the game’s big January Update, which includes the addition of the new Professional Difficulty level and HDR support, is also available today, for free.
