IO Interactive, the makers of the Hitman game franchise, has announced that it is bringing the Hitman World of Assassination trilogy to Xbox Game Pass, starting January 20. The move will mark the addition of yet another major game title to the Xbox Game Pass collection. The Hitman Trilogy will be available for gamers to play through Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate on consoles, as well as Game Pass for PCs.
The Hitman Trilogy includes access to Hitman 1, Hitman 2 and the first year of Hitman 3. In a statement announcing the move, IO Interactive said, “This collection brings together Hitman 1, Hitman 2 and Hitman 3 into a single package, making it easier than ever to take your first steps to becoming Agent 47. The Hitman Trilogy will be available with Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate on January 20, giving you everything you need to jump straight into the World of Assassination. We’re excited to welcome a wave of new players to enjoy the full trilogy through new platforms and services.”
Hitman Trilogy new features
The announcement comes as IO Interactive announced additions to expand the world of Hitman 3, bringing support for ray tracing to the game as it expands to ‘Year 2’. The new announcements state that the game will offer a new virtual reality mode, and players with access to all the three games on PC can play each of them in VR. The developers state that they’ve attempted to make the game’s VR version’s controls feel natural during gameplay. “For example, you use two hands to throw items; aim with your left and ‘fling and release’ with your right,” the statement says.
The new game also has a new ‘Freelancer Mode’, which is a single-player version of sorts in Hitman 3. The new mode allows gamers to play as a single-person by taking on individual assassin missions. The mode brings a customisable, playable safe house, which the developers say is an all-new experience to the history of Agent 47’s gaming journey. The place allows custom decor, dressing, ammunition and more, as IO looks to build a more comprehensive and customised world for the game.
