IO Interactive has released the first official screenshots and details for Hitman 3. Hitman 3 is the dramatic conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy, taking players around the world on a globetrotting adventure to sprawling sandbox locations, with Agent 47 returning for the most important contracts of his career.
Supported by his Agency handler, Diana Burnwood, Agent 47 joins forces with his long-lost friend Lucas Grey. Their ultimate mission is simple; eliminate the partners of Providence at all costs.
Mattias Engström, Game Director, said:
“HITMAN 3 has a much darker tone than the previous games in the trilogy. On top of the core Hitman experience, we are mixing in some surprise elements, an evocative atmosphere and a very real sense of closure.”
The game will feature six meticulously detailed locations packed full of creative opportunities. Moreover, Hitman 3 aims to give players the unrivalled freedom to complete their objectives in a game world that reacts to everything they do. Naturally, the game will be using the Glacier Engine, aiming to offer unparalleled player choice and replayability.
HITMAN 3 will also act as a platform for the entire trilogy. Thus, players will be able to import locations that they own from previous HITMAN games and play all 20+ locations from the trilogy in one place. HITMAN 2 players will also have the option to carry over their hard-earned unlocks and progression into HITMAN 3.
The entire HITMAN 3 campaign will be available to play at launch when the game releases in January 2021.
