IO Interactive’s Hitman was initially supposed to get a physical release but it was later converted into an episodic series. This meant that a disc version would be released only when all of the episodes had been released. The studio today confirmed when it’s going to release Hitman: The Complete First Season. It will include all episodes of Season One as well as some additional content.
The Day One Edition SteelBook of this game comes with a physical version of Hitman that includes more than 100 hours of gameplay. All Season One episodes are included. All Escalation Contracts created by IO Interactive and Contracts created by the community are included as well.
Players will also get access to all upcoming Elusive Target game events that take place after the physical release. Those who buy the disc will also get some additional content. The content will be released for everyone who has the digital Full Experience or the upgraded version of Hitman.
This additional content includes three bonus missions pack, an original soundtrack, The ‘making of’ Hitman documentary and the Hitman Requiem Blood Money Pack. The PS4 version also gets six additional exclusive The Sarajevo Six missions.
IO Interactive had initially said that the physical version of the game would be released in late 2016 before the retail version was delayed to 2017. It has confirmed today that Hitman: The Complete First Season is going to cost $59.99 on consoles and $49.99 on PC. It will be released on January 31st.
