Hitman GO coming to Oculus Rift this week

The boardgame-style assassination game Hitman GO will soon be available to play in VR. Starting Thursday, May 12, owners of the Oculus Rift will be able to download and play the game from those devices' respective stores with 91 levels of assassination challenges, according to The Verge.

While most games with Hitman name are third-person action or stealth-action titles for PCs and game consoles, GO takes a different path. Over the course of levels straight out of other parts of the series, GO tasks you with turn-based assassination missions from a bird's-eye view.

The Oculus Rift version of Hitman GO will be available for $9.99.
