The new “Hitman” game looks spectacular in 4K resolution, check it out
Stephan Jukic – March 10, 2016
A new video has recently been released to the Hitman YouTube channel showing off just how awesome the game itself can look in 4K resolution, with 4K graphics on a UHD PC gaming rig.
The new version of Hitman is the first console release of the game since Hitman: Absolution was unveiled on November 20th of 2012. With development from IO Interactive, the new version of the game is going to come out in episodic releases, much in the same way as other recent popular games like “Life is Strange”, “Tales from the Borderlands” and “Minecraft: Story Mode”.
Hitman’s latest version will be released on March 11th for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC gaming as well. The newly uploaded video on the Hitman YouTube channel shows off the game’s PC version in all its glory running at a 4K ultra HD resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. You can watch it for yourself below and if you happen to have a 4K PC monitor or YouTube in 4K on your UHD TV, all the better, but even viewing in Full HD shows off plenty of quality textures and the rich atmospheric detail of the new game.
Hitman will be released in episodes, as we just mentioned, and the first part will include the prologue and Paris map. Further additions will be coming along throughout 2016 and they include an Italy-based map for April and a Morocco-inspired level coming to users in May. As for the physical release of the whole game, it’s slated for January of 2017, after some delays so far.
Users who want to play Hitman with 4K textures on their own PC, either in its episodic version or the physical version slated for early 2017, will have to have at least one 4K-capable GPU installed in their PC rig and of course a 4K display medium such as a 4K UHD monitor or an ultra HD TV that’s particularly suited for PC gaming.
