Hitman 3 File Size Will Reduce The Trilogy's Size To "Around 100GB"

Hitman 3 is just a few weeks away and fans have been eager to get their hands on the conclusion to IO Interactive's World of Assassination Trilogy.

Just ahead of its release, the team has revealed that the Hitman 3 file size will optimise various aspects of the first two games and deliver a better experience.

Hitman 3 File Size Revealed

In a series of ResetEra posts, IO Interactive confirmed that all three games in the developer's new trilogy will come to about 100 GB, down from the 125 GB Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 currently take up.

"One thing I think all of you will be happy to hear is that we have managed to get the size of the game down significantly. All three games with all content will take up around 100gb," the developer stated on the forum.

Adding to that, the same developer then highlights that the first two games in the franchise will use newer and better compression for textures and that the engine used has been upgraded with screenspace reflections, with a lot of surfaces from the first two games being upgraded.

All three Hitman games will look sharper once Hitman 3 releases.

These improvements will be noticeable on all platforms, but primarily on PS5 and Xbox Series S/X where the power of the new consoles will make Hitman look better and run smoother than it ever has before.

IO has been able to get the game running at a silky smooth 4K 60 frames-per-second on all three of the new consoles, and if you own a PC, the game has the potential to look even better, depending on your hardware.

This conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy will include new locations to murder people within, from the quiet roads and villages of Dartmoor, England, to the neon-slicked streets of Chongqing, China, adding to the already extensive list of locations in the trilogy.

Hitman 3 will incorporate a number of new locations from across the world.

Hitman 3 will act as the conclusion to IO's reboot of the franchise, releasing on current-generation and last-generation consoles, PC, and being fully playable in VR on PS4.

The native PS5 version, unfortunately, doesn't support PSVR, so you will need to play the PS4 version to get access to the mode. Luckily, a free upgrade will be available for players.

The game will even be playable on Nintendo Switch, thanks to a cloud version which will release after the game comes to other consoles and platforms on January 20, 2021.
