Are you ready for the first HUGE release of 2021?
Hitman 3 has used all its stealth to sneak up on us, and are you ready to step into Agent 47's shoes on PS4?
Latest News - Pre-Load
Players on PlayStation or Xbox platforms will be able to pre-load the game, ready to start playing as soon as it hits unlock time.
PC Players won't be able to pre-load, and instead will have to begin downloading the game once it unlocks at 8am EST/1pm GMT.
Hitman 2 required for bonus levels on PC
Now, this is an interesting one.
In Hitman 3, you can access locations from the previous games in the trilogy (Hitman 1 & 2).
An IO spokesperson said: "Essentially, we have set up H1 and H2 as DLC for Hitman 3."
In order to do this, you will need to have purchased the previous versions from the same store you claim Hitman 3 from.
On console, this is relatively straightforward, but with Hitman 3 being an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC, you can wave bye-bye to the to accessing your H1 & H2 files from Steam.
IO is working on correcting this, and it looks as if that will be corrected "in the coming weeks".
For now, IO has implemented a workaround - offering the Hitman 1 Game of the Year Access pass free for PC players who purchase the game within the first 10 days of launch.
There's not long to wait before you can get your hands on Hitman 3, as it will be arriving on all platforms next week!
Wednesday, January 20 is the date for the diaries for all the Hitman enthusiasts out there.
A nice way to spruce up a usually dour month!
Day 1 Patch
IO interactive have confirmed that Hitman 3 will be getting day 1 patch, which will add many pieces of content to the game, including the levels that aren't included in the base game installation.
