Backward Compatibility lets you play plenty of your Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One, and the list of available games keeps expanding. The latest addition to the lineup is Hitman: Absolution, which came out all the way back in November 2012. It was the last Hitman game before last year’s episodic entries, and thus was the final entry on last generation consoles.

It was somewhat divisive due to some of its design changes, but it was generally well received by both critics and regular gamers. You can check out the trailer for it below.

Hitman: Absolution is the fifth installation in the Hitman series, and offers up plenty of stealth gameplay like all of its predecessors. It was the first to include online features, and put them to use in a system called Contracts, which let players upload their own custom missions for other players to enjoy.

You can find Hitman: Absolution in the Xbox Marketplace for $19.99 by clicking here. However, it’s worth noting that physical copies of the game are currently going for just $8.92 on Amazon- you can find those here. As always, you won’t have to buy the game a second time if you already own it for the Xbox 360. Just put the disc into your Xbox One & download it for the system if you own it physically, or check the ready to install section in My Games & Apps if you own it digitally.
