Remember when buying a game was as simple as deciding that you wanted it, so you went out and bought it? Well, it's probably an overreaction but it does feel a little weird that a release plan for a game requires more than a simple date. And if there's time, maybe a price. With the next Hitman game recently being pushed to March 11th 2016, we now have all the details surrounding the impending release. With everything covered from the 'Intro Pack' to something called 'Upgrade Pack', click through to read more than you probably should about an upcoming release plan.
Perhaps what makes the release of Hitman a little strange is the fact that the game will receive monthly content after the initial release. Which, makes the launch version of the game the 'Intro Pack'. Now, we're not sure as to why it's being dubbed 'Intro', because even though the game will only come with a handful of locations and campaign missions, both Square Enix and Io Interactive have gone to great lengths to ensure us that these levels are huge. So big in fact that they dwarf all previous Hitman games in terms of size, freedom, and variety.
Okay, so in addition to the 'Intro Pack' you can also shell out for the 'Upgrade Pack' which will entitle you to the monthly campaign and online content for the three month period following the initial release. Which also includes new large open-world areas to explore.
And for those that want all of the content you can opt for 'The Full Experience' which gets you everything. Does any of this sound confusing? Well, the following info-graphic should explain it a lot better. Note that all prices are in USD.
On the plus size, pre-ordering the game will get you access to the upcoming PlayStation 4 and PC beta.
