As mentioned in my previous Hitman article from last Friday, Square Enix’s massively popular Hitman episodic game has launched the official physical disc box set today, kicking off its Complete First Season.
This day one SteelBook collector’s edition includes every Episode and its content, from Episode One’s Prologue France locale, to Season Three’s Morocco, right up until Episode Six, which takes place in Japan. Six varying countries, dozens of various challenges and assassination targets, with almost limitless opportunities and varying methods of dealing with each. Not too shabby of a selection if you ask me.
In addition to the above, every Escalation, all Challenges, Opportunities and Contracts developed by the Hitman player community are also available in the Complete First Season set. Io-Interactive’s Creative Director, Christian Elverdam had this to say:
“This is the culmination of quite a journey, everything we’ve learnt, refined and updated over the live season has gone into the disc release” and “Our vision was to create this World of Assassination and refine it with the help of our players, and for anyone who wanted the game on a disc this is a highly polished, globally acclaimed game with over 100 hours of gameplay and more live content to come, so no more waiting needed.”
Hitman: The Complete First Season is available today across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the almighty PC. If you were holding off on Hitman due to its episodic nature, now is literally the best time to get on board, seeing as they’re all available and ready to consume, om nom nom nom!
