Two cult classic stealth action games from IO Interactive are being reintroduced on current gen consoles with the announcement of a Hitman HD Enhanced Collection. The collection will include the two classic Hitman titles, Blood Money and Absolution both finished in sleek 4K at a smooth 60 frames per second.
Both titles — Hitman: Blood Money from 2006 and Hitman: Absolution from 2012 — are critically acclaimed titles following events of the master assassin, Agent 47. Numbers four and five in terms of release order, Blood Money allowed players to explore in semi-open areas while Absolution dialed back the exploration with a more linear approach. Both sit as some of the best in the Hitman series.
“Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution have helped us on our journey to where we are today, and we’re looking forward to players enjoying them in 4K and 60 fps.” — Hakan Abrak, CEO, IO Interactive
The Hitman series has seen its own soft reboot this generation with an episodic collection releasing throughout 2016 titled solely, Hitman, which acts as a sequel to Absolution. Most recently, Hitman 2 released as a full game on November 13, 2018 carrying on the story from the 2016 title.
Along with enhanced resolution and frames per second the new collection will also add increased texture resolutions and formats, super-sampling and upscale supports, improved lighting and mirror resolutions, as well as updated controls for more fluid play.
The Hitman HD Enhanced Collection will be available digitally on January 11, 2019 for the PS4 and Xbox One.
