Hitman, the latest 2016 release, was a reboot for the series in many ways, as the non-numbered and subtitle-less name would suggest. It was developed by a newly formed Square Enix studio in Montreal and was the first game in the series to release in episodic fashion. While the early 2000’s games will always hold a special place in hearts of Hitman fans, especially Blood Money, the 2016 release was certainly a nice breath of a fresh air for the franchise and an excellent return for the world’s most dangerous assassin. While I personally loved the somewhat divisive 2012 release of Hitman: Absolution, the open-world sandbox levels and versatile gameplay of the latest title seems to have won more fans over.
Square-Enix has already released a Complete Edition for consoles, containing all episodes and bonus missions. And now Game of the Year Edition for Mac is available for download…
Feral Interactive is back at it again — porting over some of the biggest AAA console releases each year to Mac — with the Hitman Game of the Year Edition. As expected, it includes the complete first season including all six sandbox locations. Agent 47 visits another list of exotic locales along with a few closer to home like Paris, Sapienza, Marrakech, Bangkok, Hokkaido, and even Colorado.
This version of the game will include the Patient Zero mission arc as well. Essentially four all-new missions, this is a nice add-on that actually adds some story elements to the main experience. Lastly, you’ll find three Escalation mission bundles each containing a new disguise, reward, and mission: The Raven Pack, The Cowboy Pack and The Clown Pack. It would have been nice to see some of the console add-on items here like the The Icon and A House Built on Sand missions, as well as the REQUIEM Blood Money Pack, but there’s no mention of them in the press release.
Here’s a look at the Hitman Game of the Year Edition for Mac trailer:
Hitman Game of the Year Edition for Mac is available now for $61.59 at Feral. Otherwise you can get individual pricing for each element of the bundle over at Steam if you just want to try out the first episode or something of that nature.
While you might be able to run it on other machines as well, Feral is listing the following as being fully supported:
- All 27″ iMacs released since Late 2014
