Developer IO Interactive released an awesome new video for the fans of the franchise. The video is covering a very small glimpse into the action behind the scenes, but it also showed us the new location for the game, Chongqing. The game looks utterly astounding, even if Agent 47 does look more like Mr. Clean. Also, gamers can import locations from past games for a total of over 20 locations to play with.
Chongqing is a new location for HITMAN 3, taking Agent 47 to the rainy, neon-lit streets of a Chinese transportation hub packed full of shops and food stands, all crammed into tight streets – with plenty of secrets off the beaten path. Chongqing is also the destination to showcase improvements and refinements coming to HITMAN 3’s technology.
Powered by IO Interactive’s proprietary Glacier engine, HITMAN 3 will look, sound and play better than ever with improvements to lighting, reflections, animation and AI. Chongqing also features full water effects, with details such as rain drops hitting Agent 47 and his clothes getting wet, all adding to the immersion of experiencing HITMAN 3.
Hitman 3 will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Gamers on next-gen consoles will also see the game in 4K at 60fps with HDR support. Nintendo Switch gamers will also be able to enjoy the game via cloud streaming. Hitman 3 is set to release on January 20, 2021. Super excited!
