GOG has just announced that Hitman: Absolution and Hitman: Blood Money have been released onto their store. To celebrate the site is also having a Hitman series sale with discounts of 75% off until April 11th at 9 AM EST (6 AM PST).
The sale includes Hitman: Codename 47 ($1.49), Hitman 2: Silent Assassin ($2.49), Hitman 3: Contracts ($2.49), Hitman: Blood Money ($2.49), and Hitman: Absolution ($4.99). These games can be purchased individually or in a five game bundle for $13.95.
Unfortunately, the recently released Hitman and Hitman 2 are not included in the sale as the games are currently not available on GOG. Regardless, this is still an excellent deal for anyone who is looking to revisit the roots of the franchise.
For anyone unfamiliar with Absolution and Blood Money, GOG has provided the following description of the games in their news post announcing their release:
“Money talks. Silence pays. Prepare to make a killing and follow the story of Hitman: Blood Money. When assassins from Agent 47’s contract agency, The ICA, are eliminated in a series of hits, it seems a larger, more powerful agency has entered the fray. Sensing he may be a target, 47 travels to America, and prepares to make a killing.
Hitman: Absolution follows the Original Assassin undertaking his most personal contract to date. Betrayed by the Agency and hunted by the police, Agent 47 finds himself pursuing redemption in a corrupt and twisted world.”
