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.
