Hitman fans who are eagerly looking forward to the return of Agent 47 are going to be getting some nice visual updates for Hitman 3, as IO Interactive has revealed via a new trailer a brand new location for the game in Chongqiing and confirms that 4K, HDR, and 60fps (frames-per-second) are supported on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Here’s the new trailer showing the pretty smooth looking location based on the megacity of the same name in southwest China.
As you can see from the trailer, IO Interactive has added improved lighting and reflections, improved animations, a lot more NPC’s, and better effects that will also be carried over to locations from Hitman and Hitman 2 — as players can import their progress and data if they own the first two games.
In case you missed the overview of Hitman 3, here it is from the game’s official website.
Agent 47 returns as a ruthless professional in HITMAN 3 for the most important contracts of his entire career. Embark on an intimate journey of darkness and hope in the dramatic conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy. Death awaits.
