Hitman's Complete First Season Stakes Out Retail on January 31

IO Interactive is wrapping up the first season of the new Hitman with a disc release.

IO Interactive and Square Enix have announced that the new Hitman will be coming to retail for the first time in a disc release, Hitman: The Complete First Season. The title will be launching on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 31, 2017 for $59.99.

Hitman: The Complete First Season will include every location, challenge, and contract from the digital episodic release. This means players will have access to Paris, Sapienza, Marrakesh, Bangkok, and the upcoming episodes in the USA and Japan. Retail players gain access to the game's limited-time Elusive Contracts after the January 31 release date.

In addition, the retail release will include a 3 Bonus Missions pack, covering the special summer missions The Icon and A House Built on Sand, plus the upcoming Landslide mission. Buyers will get the game's original soundtrack, a Making Of documentary, and the Hitman Blood Money Pack, which offers up the signature white Blood Money suit.

"The disc combines everything we have learned, refined and updated over the course of a 10 month live season. It's the direct result of live input, development and feedback from our players," said IO Interactive studio head Hannes Seifert.

There's also a Steelbook Edition of the retail release for day on purchasers.

"Especially for our fans who want to own the game in a box, we've made it a high quality SteelBook box. We also added loads of additional downloadable bonus content to release on the 31st of January for everyone getting this beautiful edition of the game on a disc and everybody owning the digital Full Experience or upgraded versions of the game."

Bob and I have really been enjoying the new Hitman. Despite the odd release schedule, it's proven to be one of the best iterations in the franchise. In fact, it's one of the better games this year, even if no one is really talking about it outside of the fervent Hitman fanbase. You can check out Bob's reviews of Episodes 1, 2, 3, and 4 if you want to learn more.
