With the complete first season of Hitman coming in physical format at the end of this month, it’s been confirmed that the game will support HDR on PS4, Xbox One S, PS4 Pro, and PC later this month.
The news comes from the Hitman Twitter account, confirming that the HDR feature will be added in on Jan. 31. For those unaware of what HDR exactly is, HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and is a technology that is incorporated into many modern 4K TVs. High Dynamic Range technology in TVs brings a huge advance in color, contrast, and brightness which, as cheesy as it sounds, has to be seen to be believed. Essentially, the use of this tech makes bright and colorful scenes really stand out on your screen, but also brings a ton more detail into dark scenes that, on non-HDR TVs looked a little washed out and blurry.
With Hitman set to support High Dynamic Range, you can expect the game’s highly detailed locations like Sapienza, Paris, and Bangkok to really stand out when you’re playing on a compatible TV. Unfortunately, owners of the original Xbox One won’t see any benefit when the patch drops later this month as the system itself does not support High Dynamic Range.
