Hitman: Absolution is a stealth title developed by IO Interactive for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game was considered as one of the best in its series, as it was better than the previous installments in many ways. Though some players didn’t like that fact that the game had fewer places to explore as compared to the previous titles. But it was still better as it was running on Glacier 2 game engine.
Recently, Microsoft has announced that this critically acclaimed title will be joining the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility list, meaning that Xbox One users will be able to play Hitman: Absolution soon. Not only this, but IO Interactive has announced that they are planning to bring more Xbox 360 titles developed by them on the Xbox One. According to them, they have a wish to see their previous titles on the Xbox One.
Hitman: Absolution features the stealthy gameplay just like the previous Hitman games. You can use a wide variety of weapons, including some deadly melee weapons, to take down your enemies quietly. The game also features an online mode known as ‘Contracts’ where players can create challenges for other others to compete.
Xbox One Backwards Compatibility was launched in November 2015. Through this, Xbox One users can play their favorite Xbox 360 titles on Xbox One. Though not all Xbox 360 games are available to be played on Xbox One, but the list is expanding from time to time. The Backwards Compatibility library currently has more than 130 Xbox 360 titles and all of them are playable on the Xbox One. How cool is that?
Hitman: Absolution was released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 20, 2012. The game is developed by IO Interactive and published by Square Enix. A Closed Beta for the upcoming installment in the Hitman series, HITMAN, is currently being held on the PS4.
