Xbox One Adds New Backwards Compatible Game
The Hitman HD Pack is now playable on Xbox One.
Another Xbox 360 game is joining Xbox One's growing backwards compatible library. The latest addition is the Hitman HD Pack. The game will be playable on Microsoft's current-gen console as of today, May 9, Major Nelson announced on Twitter.
The Hitman HD Pack consists of two games--Hitman: Contracts and Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. Both titles initially released on PlayStation 2 and the original Xbox, the former in 2004 and the latter in 2002. These versions have been remastered with HD visuals and other touch-ups. You can read more about each in our original Hitman: Contracts review and Hitman 2: Silent Assassin review.
If you still own a physical copy of Hitman HD Pack, you can pop the disc into your Xbox One to initiate a download and begin playing on the console. If you're interested in picking it up, the game is also available for purchase from the system's digital store for $25.
The Hitman HD Pack isn't the only new game to receive backwards compatible support with Xbox One recently. Earlier this week, Microsoft added Costume Quest and From Dust to the BC library, while the week prior brought Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge and Trials Evolution.
