Following last year’s late launch of Hitman 2, Warner Bros. and IO Interactive have revealed Hitman HD Enhanced Collection for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
The collection will include Hitman: Blood Money, and Hitman: Absolution, remastered in full 4K visuals, and 60 fps. Launching later this month on January 11th, the collection includes the aforementioned visual enhancements, as well as increased texture resolution, upgraded texture formats, super-sampling, upscale support, heightened shadow map and mirror resolutions, improved lighting and updated controls.
Per Press Release:
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today announced Hitman™ HD Enhanced Collection, a compilation of two classic Hitman titles remastered in 4K resolution: Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution.
Both games can be played in 4K resolution and 60 fps, including many other improvements that bring these two classic titles into 2019 with the attention and love that they deserve. Hitman HD Enhanced Collection will be available digitally Jan. 11, 2019, for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®4 Pro and the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X.
“We’re very happy with this collection and how we were able to update and remaster two of our classic Hitman titles for modern consoles,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO, IO Interactive. “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.”
Hitman HD Enhanced Collection will feature 4K visuals at 60 frames per second (fps), along with increased texture resolution, upgraded texture formats, super-sampling, upscale support, heightened shadow map and mirror resolutions, improved lighting and updated controls for a more fluid experience.
Relive some of Agent 47’s most iconic hits in Hitman: Blood Money and experience a globe-trotting adventure from the vineyards of Chile, to the Paris Opera House and even the White House itself in a face-off against a group of assassins known as “The Franchise.”
Rediscover the cinematic story of Hitman: Absolution and experience the deep and personal story of Agent 47 as he pursues redemption across 20 intense missions. Enjoy a distinctive art style that combines with rich dialogue and performances by an impressive Hollywood cast to create a unique gameplay experience.
Hitman HD Enhanced Collection will launch digitally for $59.99, and will be available on January 11th. This is the perfect time to revisit these two titles, especially for those that have been playing Hitman 2 since it launched. When Hitman 2 released, we thought that it was “at its best when players really took their time with each area and uncover everything each stage has to offer. This means going through each area multiple times, discovering new stories and gadgets to use to take down targets, and planning your exit strategy.”
No new trailers were revealed, but we found an older trailer from the launch of Hitman: Absolution, so check that out leading up to the launch of Hitman HD Enhanced Collection.
