The Hitman franchise’s first four soundtracks have been compiled into one 4LP box set.

Dubbed Hitman: The Critical Collection, the tracklist brings together songs from Hitman: Codename 47, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts and Hitman: Blood Money, including tracks never included in previous vinyl pressings.

Each Hitman soundtrack receives a different colored LP.

Packaging is designed by Drew Wise and folds out into a landscape portrait of Agent 47’s iconic suit, complete with no-so-concealed firearms.

The Critical Collection is limited to 2,000 copies and pre-orders go live 1 p.m. ET Thursday, June 6 for $100. Orders are expected to ship at the end of 2019.

The first game in the franchise, Hitman: Codename 47, was released in 2000 for PC. Its sequel was the first Hitman game to hit consoles, appearing on all contemporary home systems (PS2, Xbox, GameCube). Hitman: Blood Money took the series to the next generation when it released in 2006 for Xbox 360. Current gen systems have played host to Hitman, a soft reboot of the franchise, and its sequel.
