  • Hitman Trilogy is a compilation of the various Hitman 3 content, mainly the Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 Access Passes. 
  • Xbox Game Pass users will be able to access the VR version of all three games.
  • The games are already available with the difficulty levels amped up.

It’s been a long time coming, but Hitman fans will be delighted to know that the hit stealth series is finally set to land on Xbox Game Pass with all three games in the series available for subscribers.

And that’s not all. IO Interactive has taken things one step further and has launched an all-new game mode, Elusive Target Arcade, that pits players against a series of tough-as-nails targets from the Hitman universe. 

Now, if you’ve never heard of the Hitman games before, or perhaps played them years ago, keep in mind that this remastered release does come with a new game mode called Escalation Mode.

The twist is that if you miss your first or second chance, then you won’t be able to take another shot at the contract for 12 hours. That means if you’ve put it off for a day or two and then try to jump back in, you’ll have to wait even longer.

There are exclusive rewards to earn from completing the Elusive Target Arcade mode. This mode is repeatable, so you can try over and over again to win rewards, unlike Elusive Contract mode.

After the 3.100 patch on 20 January 2022, HITMAN 3 will support VR on all PC platforms that the game is available. In short, it’s the game that allows you to play in VR, not the platform. Whether you play HITMAN 3 on Steam, Epic Games Store, or Windows PC (Microsoft Store), including PC Game Pass, HITMAN VR will be available to you on our supported hardware.

IO Interactive has announced that the Hitman: Absolution game will be available for Xbox Game Pass subscribers starting today. In addition, there are some new features and content coming to the game soon, including an all-new game mode, a new map called Rocky, and VR support on PC.

You can purchase the Hitman Trilogy from the Microsoft Store.
