Hitman 2 is Getting Remastered and Revamped Content From Hitman Season One for Free

Nice hit

If you're looking forward to Hitman 2, IO has an extra surprise for you. Content from the critically-acclaimed first season of Hitman will be added to Hitman 2 for free, complete with a remaster and gameplay update.

The Hitman season 1 content is being called the Hitman Legacy Pack and will include the assassination locations of Paris, Marrakesh, Bangkok, Colorado, Sapienza, and Hokkaido. They will be remastered visually, but more importantly will support the new gameplay features included in Hitman 2. That means the new progression system tools of assassination will all be included with the Legacy Pack free update.

IO Interactive is now working independently on the Hitman franchise after splitting with Square Enix (though technically IO is working with Warner Bros. now as a publishing partner). IO bought back the rights to Hitman after the split, which was a welcome surprise after news IO might be in dire situations at Square Enix.

Hitman 2 is scheduled for a November release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more check out our Hitman 2 guide with the latest previews, news, and release info.
