Hitman: Definitive Edition is coming to retail in May for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Io Interactive announced Hitman: Definitive Edition for retail in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive as publisher.

Those who purchase the game will be joining the 12 million others players. Io Interactive said Hitman set an “all-time record for the most active users,” in a single day last week. The team had to bump up the server capacity in order to meet demand.

Similar to the digital-only Hitman: Game of the Year Edition, the Definitive version contains all content from the complete first season, the Patient Zero campaign, and three themed Escalation Contracts with corresponding outfits and weapons.

Hitman: Definitive Edition also contains ICA bonus missions in Sapienza and Marrakesh.

It also features the Hitman: Blood Money Requiem Pack which was a pre-order bonus containing the Requiem Suit, Pale Duck Explosive and ICA Chrome Pistol.

A 20th Anniversary Outfit Bundle is also included. The outfits are inspired by Io Interactive titles Freedom Fighters, Kane & Lynch and Mini Ninjas. This bundle will be made available as a separate purchase for current Hitman owners.

Some add-on content will not be pre-loaded on the Hitman: Definitive Edition disc and will need to be downloaded. The file size is approximately 12-24GB, depending on platform.

Hitman: Definitive Edition will be released on May 15 for PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, and Xbox One X.
