The Hitman series taught me so much at a young age: how to hide a cadaver, stealth tactics and being bald can work to your advantage when it comes to wigs. Thankfully, the series is still growing strong with Hitman 3.

IO Interactive has released a new trailer that showcases the new features, along with the stunning locations such as Dubai and, erm, Dartmoor. 

Running at 4K and 60fps (glad to have a PS5 and not pay more for an RTX 3080), Hitman 3 runs on the developer’s Glacier engine. What that means is I can insert a dad joke about it being really really cool. But if you genuinely want to know what that means, it’s faster loading times and 300 (count ’em) NPCs on screen at one time!!

Perhaps the biggest surprise is the ability to import locations from the previous games. But that’s not just it: it has PlayStation VR support as well, so you get to see the neck hairs of the victim you’re complimenting with a piano wire.

Have a look at the intro trailer below:

Hitman 3 will be strolling up to your doorstep with a loaded gun on the 20th of January 2021 for PS4/5, Xbox One/SX, Stadia and PC. Another shocker: it’s coming to the Nintendo Switch via cloud streaming technology. Cumulonimbus.
