Hitman HD Enhanced Collection Xbox One X Enhanced

The duo of two older assassination based games are to be upgraded as the Hitman HD Enhanced Collection Xbox One X Enhanced release is confirmed from IO Interactive. The game is listed as being "available now" for an enhancement and that isn't surprising since the previous titles from the group have been recently enhanced. Furthermore, that the past Hitman titles have been very supportive of enhancing their new releases. For now we have full details as its "available now" with support for a 4k resolution and HDR support. The true resolution is 3200x1800 which is a 277 percent increase over the original release. On top of that is a 4k GUI.

To jump into technical features that are many changes to the two games. Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution are the two games that make up this collection. They will both support 4k 60fps; have an increased texture resolution with upgraded texture formats and super-sampling. They will feature upscale support, heightened shadow maps and mirror resolutions including general improved lighting. Updated controls are also added for a more fluid experience.

The game will be enhanced right upon launch as opposed to post. For context, Hitman HD Enhanced Collection brings updated versions of both Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution. In the former, you experience a globetrotting adventure from the vineyards of Chile, to the Paris Opera House and even the White House itself in a face-off against a group of assassins known as “The Franchise”. For the latter work through a deep and personal story of Agent 47 as he pursues redemption across twenty intense missions. The Hitman HD Enhanced Collection Xbox One X enhanced releases on January 11, 2019 on Xbox One platforms.
