IO Interactive’s Hitman is an episodic entry to the much-loved franchise and the new game has been very well received. The first season has ended now and the developer continues to roll out a steady stream of Elusive Targets to keep players busy. The next update it will send out is going to bring some visual enhancements particularly for those who have an HDR display. IO Interactive has confirmed that Hitman HDR support will arrive next week.


This new Hitman update is going to be released next week. It’s going to bring HDR support which is going to make it look even better, provided that the game is being played on an HDR display, otherwise this update won’t do much to improve the visual experience.

“As an example, think of 47 in a dark room looking out a bright window. Without HDR you would not be able make out what’s outside, whereas with HDR you can simultaneously see details inside the room and outside the window,” explains IO Interactive. The developer also posted a screenshot that showcases the visual improvements that players can expect to enjoy once this update is released.

Hitman HDR support is going to go live on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 31st, 2017. Bear in mind that you will need an HDR display to experience the visual enhancement.
