Next month, the best possible version of the Hitman game that debuted in 2016 will appear. On November 7, 2017, IO Interactive will release Hitman: Game of the Year Edition for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be $60 if this is your first foray into the installment, while existing players can pay $20 to upgrade their copy to the GOTY Edition.
Hitman: Game of the Year Edition is more than just the first season of the game and all of its existing DLC. Entirely new content is being released for this. There will be a four-mission Patient Zero campaign that takes Agent 47 to Bangkok, Sapienza, Colorado, and Hokkaido as he attempts to stop a global pandemic. This means all new gameplay, a new Niels Bye Nielsen soundtrack, extra HUD elements, and different AI behavior. There will also be three new outfits, Corky the Clown with his A New Bat, the Raven Suit with a Sieger 300 Ghost variant, and a Cowboy Suit with a The Striker magnum pistol. Each of these outfits has a unique, three-stage Escalation Contract.
In addition, a free patch will be released for everyone on November 7, 2017. This will add reactivated Elusive Targets, commemorative Elusive Target in-game coin unlock, a new UI, Contracts Mode will get a Trending section and Conditions, lighting will be improved, PC Tobii Eye Tracking support, and Xbox One X updates. The reactivated targets will still be time-limited and, if you’ve already played them, you can’t play them again.
Hitman is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
