Xbox Live Games With Gold – Hitman: Absolution available today

Hitman Absolution Logo Red

April’s Games With Gold kicks off with a better than average choice.

Last month Xbox LIVE Gold Members were given Civilization: Revolution and Dungeon Defenders for free, as their March Games With Gold. This month, starting today, we can pick up Hitman: Absolution until 15 April totally free.

The fifth instalment of the Hitman games, Hitman: Absolution once again casts you as the bald-headed Agent 47, but this time he’s on a mission of the personal kind. The Agency, a killer-for-hire organization which Agent 47 has worked for all these years, betrays him. He must search for the truth, all whilst avoiding the Agency’s goons and the police.

The second game this month is Deadlight, a side-scroller platform game where you take on the role of a former park ranger following the outbreak of a zombie apocalypse. We’ll bring you more info about Deadlight when it’s available for free on 16 April.

Take a look at the trailer for Hitman: Absolution below  - warning, stealthy assassin violence, and nude ladies through fogged up glass. Enjoy.
