Hitman is an episodic action-adventure stealth video game developed by IO Interactive and published by Square Enix for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. The complete first season of Hitman will be released physically on January 31, 2017, something that you’re currently able to digitally purchase.

There is some other good news for the fans of the game: On January 31, 2017, Hitman will finally support HDR when played on the new Xbox One S. The same title will run in HDR on Microsoft’s upcoming high-spec console currently nicknamed Project Scorpio.

Keep in mind this update will be free and if you already own the game, you will just need to connect your Xbox One to the internet and download the new patch (once it will be released).

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, a technology that balances shadows, colors and highlights to improve the quality of an image without having to increase its overall resolution. The Xbox One S supports this new image format, but keep in mind that you will need a HDR-supported television in order to see the  improvements.

We should mention that in the near future, more titles will be playable in HDR. Here are some games that already support or will support HDR on Xbox One S:

  • Battlefield 1
  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Forza Horizon 3
  • Gears of War 4
  • Hitman
  • NBA 2K17
  • Pure Chess Ultra
  • ReCore
  • Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
  • Scalebound
  • World of Tanks.
