Hitman 3 next-gen details confirmed
4K resolution at 60 frames per second with HDR support is planned
IO Interactive have announced new details about their upcoming stealth title, HITMAN 3.
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 feature 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.
There will be new interaction animation and AI, as well as Glacier’s crowd technology that will allow up to 300 NPC’s in a location at once. On next-gen consoles, HITMAN 3 will run in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second with HDR support.
HITMAN 3 players can import locations from the previous games in the trilogy and have more than 20+ locations under one roof. All of the improvements to rendering, animation and AI introduced with HITMAN 3 can be enjoyed across all three games.
HITMAN 3 will be available on 20 January 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC.
