Square Enix Montréal have announced that Hitman GO™: Definitive Edition will be released for the PS4 and PS Vita on February 23 in North America, and February 24 in European territories. The revisited and adapted version of the studio’s critically acclaimed turn-based puzzle strategy game will be available as a Cross Buy digital download from the PlayStation Store for $7.99.
The definitive edition has been updated with improved graphics, new control schemes optimized for consoles, integrated trophies (including a platinum), and cross-save functionality allowing users to seamlessly transfer save files between PlayStation systems to take Hitman GO: Definitive Edition on the go. The game includes all of its original content as well as all subsequent content updates (Opera, Airport and St. Petersburg boxes), and all in-app purchases have been removed.
“We are very excited to be bringing Hitman GO to even more players with this revisited edition. We hope the challenging turn-based gameplay will please even the most dedicated Hitman fans,” said Patrick Naud, Head of Studio for Square Enix Montreal. “Hitman GO is an innovative iteration of the successful stealth franchise and should see continued success with this release on consoles and PC.”
Hitman GO has been honored with Best Game Design and Best iOS Game in the 2014 Canadian Videogame Awards and was a nominee in two categories at the BAFTAs. The game was chosen as an Essential app for iOS devices by Apple and featured as one of the best Apps of 2014.
