The latest Hitman 3 reveal shows us the latest exotic location coming to the game.
Heading off to one of the biggest cities in the world, chongqing, in South West China.
This will be one awesome location for players, with bright neon and stark contrasts between the dark, rain-soaked environment.
Let's take a look at what else we know about the location, and Hitman 3 on next gen, now!
Built on the in-house Glacier Engine from IO Interactive, the location is stunning.
The video shows us around the location slightly, giving us our first glimpse of the city.
Sure enough, the neon and rainy environment allow for some stunning visuals, especially thanks to the enhanced ray-tracing of next gen.
The voiceover for the video highlights that all of this is to aid player immersion, and we can certainly see us losing ourselves in the game.
Next Gen Graphics
The new location is a perfect opportunity for IO Interactive to showcase not only the engine, but the graphics as well.
Next gen hardware allows developers to move forwards with full support for 4K resolution.
Interestingly, this also means that players will be able to use 60fps and HDR in-game.
It also enable the consoles to render in more than ever before!
Another exciting development from this new engine are improvements to old games.
Now, these technical and visual improvements will be visible in Hitmans 1 and 2 as well.
We don't yet know how this will play out, but for fans of the old games, it's an exciting development.
Finally, the engine is also capable of handling over 300 NPCs on screen at once.
So expect new environments to feel busier than ever!
