IO Interactive has released a new Hitman 3 video, which introduces the game.
In Hitman 3, you get to travel the world and kill interesting people with complete freedom of approach.
The video shows the various ways Agent 47 can acquire access to buildings, such as hacking with his new camera, using brute force, or just by accepting an invitation.
You can also use disguises in the game to blend in, but beware of enforcers who can call you out if they get a good look.
Agent 47 can also use classic weapons and more state of the art options, but of course, almost anything can be used as a weapon too. But, there are always ways in which to accomplish goals without using weapons at all.
There are also “accidents” which can be pulled off, or you can use someone else to do your dirty work.
Adapting as circumstances change will also be a way to make sure your goal is met, as the targets can be the most protected people in the world. Some are also only exposed for a limited amount of time.
Mastery tracks in the game will also allow you to open up new weapons and items, and there are 20 mastery tiers per level with new starting locations, gear, exotic distraction, and stashed weapons. You will also receive ratings based on playstyle and skill level.
Hitman 3 will be released on January 20 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. Buying the game digitally on PS4 will allow you to upgrade to a digital PS5 copy for free. The same is true for Xbox One to Xbox Series X, as the game is making use of Smart Delivery. The game is also coming to Switch in a cloud version.
On next-gen consoles, it will support 4k visuals, 60 fps, HDR, and faster loading times. The game will also bring refinements to interaction animation and AI, as well as Glacier’s crowd technology that will allow up to 300 NPC’s in a location at once.
It will also support PlayStation VR at launch, and every location from the World of Assassination trilogy can be enjoyed in VR when you play them through the game.
