The Hitman HD Pack is now playable on Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles after gaining backwards compatibility functionality earlier today.
This Xbox 360 title contains HD remasters of both Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Hitman: Contracts, each with all of the content from their original releases.
Here’s the original game descriptions for each game:
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
Enter the realm of a retired assassin, forced back into action by treason. You may be a hired killer but you still have a sense of loyalty and justice. Visit the dark recesses of a world corrupted by crime, greed, degradation and dishonor. And a past that catches up with you. Trust no one – if the price is right, the finger of your most trusted ally will be on the trigger. Your targets may hide in the most remote areas of the planet, but their destruction is never prevented – only postponed.
Learn your trade – master your tools – overcome your obstacles – outsmart your enemies – eliminate your targets. Remember: rash decisions bleed consequences. Know when to strike instantly, know when to take your time. Chance favors the prepared. Failure is not an option.
Enter the world of a HITMAN – a world of crime, sin and greed. Delve into the mind of Agent 47 and encounter his greatest adversaries, completing the work that made him so brutally efficient and shaped him as an assassin. Eliminate your targets by any means necessary.
There are no rules… only the contract, signed in blood.
Something worth keeping in mind with Hitman HD Pack is that the included Hitman 2: Silent Assassin game isn’t the same game as the Xbox One’s Hitman 2. Hitman 2: Silent Assassin is the second game in the Hitman video game franchise while Hitman 2 is the seventh.
The series had a soft reset with its titles with the current generation of consoles so the sixth game in the series was called simply Hitman. Its follow-up, the seventh game, was thus called Hitman 2. It’s definitely confusing but then the Xbox One is the third Xbox console and not the first.
