IO Interactive has announced that remastered versions of 2006s Hitman: Blood Money and 2012 Hitman: Absolution launches January 11 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with graphically and mechanically updated versions of both games. The digital-only package is called Hitman HD Enhanced Collection. No price was given.
The new versions of both games can be played in 4K at 60 frames per second, with improved lighting and updated controls. Below is the complete list of updated features, directly from the developer:
- 4K visual images at 60 frames per second
- Increased texture resolution
- Super sampling
- Upscale support
- Increased shadow map and mirror solutions
- Improved lighting
- Updated controls for more fluid experience
In September, both games were re-submitted to the Pan European Game Information Board for content rating on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which led to rumors of some kind reissue.
Blood Money and Absolus is the fourth and fifth game in the series, and does not count on Hitman Trilogy the compilation released between them. They steal assassin Agent 47 as he tries to sneak through a variety of environments to kill his targets as quietly and cleanly as possible.
