Hitman hunts down 360

Tuesday 4 April 2006
Slip on the leather gloves, dust off the fibre wire and prepare for some high definition blood spilling because publisher Eidos has announced that Agent 47's latest lesson in cold, calculated killing - Hitman: Blood Money - will be released on Xbox 360 this spring.

Agent 47's soiree on Microsoft's next-gen beauty should certainly mean that the super sharp-shooting Hitman action will look even sweeter in super sharp HD-o-vision. The game's executive producer, Neil Donnell from developer IO Interactive, certainly thinks so.

"The development team at IO has engineered and developed the game to harness and exploit the latest in graphics and game technology, so Xbox 360 is the ideal platform to demonstrate this work in HD."

Besides additional graphical splendour, there is no indication that the 360 version of Blood Money will have any exclusive content, although playing next-gen Hitman is a mighty fine proposition in itself.

Hitman: Blood Money will be released on 360 alongside PC, PS2 and Xbox versions - click here to read our PS2 preview - and you can scope out the first next-gen shots by firing your mouse at the images tab at the top of this page.

I don't have the energy to really hate anything properly. Most things I think are OK or inoffensively average. I do love quite a lot of stuff as well, though.
