The list of games available through Microsoft’s backwards compatibility feature has been growing ever since its launch back in November of 2015. The collection, which is now over 320 titles long, this week became a little more deadly.

Hitman: Absolution, the fifth installment to the iconic stealth based franchise is now available through the service. Originally developed by IO Interactive and published by Square Enix in late 2012, Hitman: Absolution follows on from events taking place in Hitman: Blood Money. At its core the game is a stealth based shooter. However, as with any Hitman game, it distinguishes its self from similar titles by allowing players the creative freedom to play out each mission in their own style.

Alongside Hitman: Absolution last week’s additions to the list included LEGO: Indiana Jones and Grand Theft Auto IV, with the latter also including both episodes from the Liberty City add-on packs.

In related news, Xbox One subscribers to Xbox Live can also gain access to Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime for free during the month of February. Project Cars Digital Edition is also available between February 16th and March 15th.
