IO Interactive has released a new trailer and the first content details for Hitman‘s Game of the Year Edition.
This GOTY Edition of the 2016 title will include all of the original game’s base content – meaning that it will compile all of Season One’s episodic missions – as well as some resurrected Elusive Target missions. Previously, Elusive Target missions were only available to players for a limited period of time. If the player failed that mission – or failed to complete it during its window of availability – then the mission was gone forever.
Hitman‘s GOTY update will allow players to experience any Elusive Target missions they missed. However, any failed missions will not be re-playable. This update somewhat contradicts a previous statement from IO which suggested that Elusive Target missions will never be made available beyond their initial offering.
Additionally, the new edition of Hitman will feature a new campaign titled “Patient Zero.” This campaign is actually just comprised of previous Hitman maps (specifically Sapienza, Bangkok, Colorado, and Hokkaido) but it will tie those levels together with a new narrative. Furthermore, each level will come complete with new enemy layouts, new objectives, new disguises, and new mechanics.
Along with the major new in-game content, this GOTY Edition will include new Escalation outfits and weapons as well as some enhanced UI and visual features.
Hitman‘s Game of the Year Edition is expected to release on November 7th. Current Hitman owners will be able to purchase it for $20, while new players can get the GOTY package for the full retail price.
While this isn’t quite the Hitman: Season Two announcement that we’re waiting for, it’s nice to know that IO’s recent troubles haven’t prevented them from developing more Hitman content.
