Hitman’s game of the year edition is adding a new campaign, weapons and outfits

2 min read

There’s a general consensus that in a year that was bursting at the seams with high quality content, Hitman was pretty much the cream of the crop. IO Interactive’s murderous sandbox was perfect in its execution, giving players all the tools they needed to pull off assassinations with style, grace and absurdity.

And it didn’t ask them to open up a single loot box in the process.

While Hitman’s episodic approach was a concept done right, the entire package and its assorted episodes were already collected into retail edition that included all content that had been released to fans up to that point. IO Interactive is doing just that again with an obligatory game of the year edition. Only y’know, it actually deserves that title. Here’s a trailer for the Hitman highlight reel of mayhem and murder:

The big new edition? A brand new campaign, titled Patient Zero. No word yet as to whether or not this will be a separate purchase for anyone who already obtained the full first season, but I’m already dead keen on playing it.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    The episodic approach is what drove me away from the game. Now that they are all bundled together I will likely give it a go.

      Same here.

      I wasn’t keen either, but tried it out. It worked really well at selling the “international assassin” experience, in that the missions (and accompanying story cutscenes) came by a few weeks after your last successful mission.

      I doubt it would work on a different type of game though.

      Still, give it a go. It’s probably one of the last old school, impeccable quality games.

    A game like South Park can benefit from episodic releases seeing how it’s a TV show. Heck, they can even make it so that players are given choices and said choices can reflect on the show itself.
