Hitman Games Coming to Xbox Game Pass with Brand New Game Mode

It’s been a while, but Hitman fans will be happy to know that the popular stealth series is finally coming to Xbox Game Pass with all three games in the series available for subscription.

And that’s not all. IO Interactive has taken it one step further with the launch of the all-new Elusive Target Arcade game mode, which pits players against a series of cool targets from the Hitman universe. 

Now, if you’ve never heard of the Hitman games before or may have played them years ago, be aware that this updated release has a new game mode called Escalation Mode.

The bottom line is that if you miss your first or second chance, then you will not be able to make another attempt at the contract for 12 hours. This means that if you put it off for a day or two and then try to come back, you will have to wait even longer.

Completing the Elusive Target arcade mode will unlock exclusive rewards. This mode is repeatable, so you can try to get rewards over and over again, unlike the Elusive Contract mode.

With Update 3.100 on January 20, 2022, HITMAN 3 will support VR on all PC platforms where the game is available. In short, this is a game that allows you to play in virtual reality, not a platform. Whether you play HITMAN 3 on Steam, the 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 Hitman: Absolution will be available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers starting today. In addition, some new features and content are coming soon to the game, including a brand new game mode, a new Rocky map, and VR support on PC.

You can purchase Hitman Trilogy from the Microsoft Store .
