Hitman now available to pre-order on Xbox One

The Hitman reboot is almost here and if you've been looking forward to taking out bad guys on your Xbox One you can now pre-order and pre-download ahead of the big launch in a week's time.

Hitman is taking a different approach for its latest incarnation, in so much as its being delivered episodically, with a new location arriving every month. You can go for either the premium bundle and just pay for everything up front, or grab the intro pack and pay less now, topping up as you go along.

Here's the differences between the two:

HITMAN Intro Pack – With the Intro Pack, you get the Prologue and Paris episode. You'll get full access to Contracts Mode, Escalation Mode, elusive targets and other live content.

HITMAN The Full Experience – On release players have access to the Intro Pack content – Prologue Mission, the Paris Sanguine Fashion Show, full access to Contracts Mode, Escalation Mode, elusive targets and other live content. Remaining content will be available as six releases periodically throughout 2016, starting April 2016.

While the method of delivering the game will split opinions, once actually playing we're pretty excited for it. We had the fortune to get an early look in a developer session at EGX in late 2015. Without spoiling any of what you're going to see, making your kills has never been more elaborate or impressive. The environments look to be detailed and engaging, and it looks to have everything that we love about Hitman brought right up to date for current generation hardware.

You can find both bundles in the Xbox Store now, costing $14.99 or $59.99 in the U.S. Regional prices may vary.

  • Love this game.
  • They've made him look old! O.o
    Love Hitman though! :') Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • You can get 20% off pre-orders if you order through amazon and have prime. This applies to all pre orders not just hitman, but I thought id share as it seems alot of people don't know about the perk.
  • Or pay Best Buy $30 for 2 years to get 20% anytime off any new games anytime and not just 20% up until 2 weeks of the game being actually released Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • This game will be digital only untill later this year so the 20% off from either retair won't work just yet.
  • I'm very interested in this (having never played any Hitman game), but with the division coming out, maybe I'm better off waiting for the complete bundle that will eventually surface in 7 months
  • If you like stealth games, then Hitman is the one game for you.
  • Yea just wait until it's all out, it'll be cheaper and then an actual "full" game...hopefully
  • Not thrilled with the release model they got going on with this might just wait till it comes out as a physical disc
