Good news for Hitman fans, the games are all set to arrive for the Google Stadia. It’s not just one or two, but all three Hitman games. That’s right, the complete World of Assassination trilogy is more than ready to come to this new platform.

Just to give a brief background, the first ever game in the franchise was Hitman: Codename 47, which released in 2000. Four games followed after that ending with Hitman: Absolution in 2012. The first game in the World of Assassination trilogy was released in 2016. While it was envisioned to be a soft reboot of the franchise, the story followed the events of Absolution. The game offered a large and open-ended sandboxes that players could freely explore.

So when are these games going to be available for the Stadia, exactly? Hitman is going to be available on September 1 and is offered for free with Stadia Pro.

In 2018, the sequel Hitman 2 was released. This latest addition to the franchise has gameplay similar to the previous installment and offers a total of eight missions that are set in unique locations. This game also introduced the use of concussive gadgets, items that players can use to render an NPC unconscious. Hitman 2 also brought back the briefcase which let players hide and carry large weapons.

The Stadia version of Hitman 2 is also going to be added to Stadia Pro and will be available for purchase starting on September 1 as well. As for Hitman 3, it is going to be added to Stadia in January 2021, completing the trilogy.

Hitman 3 was first announced back in June. Like the two previous games in the trilogy, this upcoming one is going to offer a lot of replayability with missions being created in a way that players get a different experience every time they play it. Unlike the games before the World of Assassination trilogy, Hitman 3 is not going to be a linear third-person game, but instead function more like a sandbox. That’s not all as players can carry over their progress from Hitman 2 to the sequel. They can even play all missions from the first two games. The game is going to be launched for both the current generation of consoles as well as the next-gen consoles. Read more about that here.
