This year’s episodically-structured Hitman game will go on sale at retail from January 31, 2017, developer IO Interactive has announced. Dubbed as The Complete First Season, the physical release will contain all currently available episodes as well as two further additions (confirmed to take place in the United States and Japan) which are due to become available digitally before the end of 2016.
IO and Square Enix had originally planned to bring Agent 47’s newest adventure to retail before the end of 2016, but pushed the release back so that both parties would “have enough time after the season concludes to dedicate to getting the best disc version of the game out.”
It looks like that explanation held true: along with the standard retail edition going on sale early next year, a special Day One Steelbook Edition will be available alongside it, offering all previously released DLC, the game’s soundtrack, the Requiem Blood Money digital pre-order bonus and a making-of documentary for £49.99 (approx. $65).
Available for both Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, IO says that the bonus content included in the Hitman‘s special retail edition will be made available in some way for digital owners at a later date. Additionally, the Requiem Blood Money Pack (pictured below) will be available to buy as a standalone digital download from January 31.
