Calling all console fans who like paying over the odds for a resolution bump - a Hitman HD Enhanced Collection has been announced. Hitman HD Enhanced Collection includes 4K/60fps versions of both Hitman Absolution and Hitman Blood Money, enhanced with improved lighting and updated modern control schemes.
Hitman Absolution was a divisive, far more linear take on Hitman that debuted in 2012 for PS3, X360 and, of course, PC. Hitman: Blood Money is much older. Hitman 4 in all but name, Blood Money originally launched in 2006 for PC, PS2, and Xbox, and is pretty widely considered to one of the best in the Hitman series thanks to a cracking story and one of the most iconic hits.
If the presence of Hitman: Blood Money has you raising a single suspicious brow, that’ll be because it’s already been included in the Hitman HD Trilogy for previous-gen consoles. Somehow this classic has managed to wrangle its way into two separate Hitman collections.
IO Interactive has yet to announce platforms for the remastered Hitman collection, although it seems safe to assume a PC version probably isn’t on the cards. It doesn’t sound as if a huge deal is changing outside of higher resolution support, a feat already possibly on PC with the current versions of Absolution and Blood Money.
Hitman HD Enhanced Collection will be available to download from January 11th.
