Hitman 3 is set to kick off 2021 when it releases later this week and will see the conclusion of the World of Assassination trilogy, which began with the 2016 Hitman reboot.
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 3 will feature six new locations to play in and cause havoc across.
These locations are,
- Dubai, UAE
- Dartmoor, United Kingdom
- Berlin, Germany
- Chongqing, China
- Mendoza, Argentina
- Carpathian Mountains, Romania
It's a global tour for Agent 47 as Hitman 3 arrives, but where will you head to first?
Hitman 3 is set to launch worldwide on January 20th on all platforms.
It has been said that the trilogy of Hitman games will take up less than 100GB in total.
This would also indicate that all three games will link together as one, much like Hitman 1 and 2 do.
Players that launch Hitman 2 can see all of the missions from Hitman 1 and if they're installed then are playable from within Hitman 2.
This makes the trilogy one seamless story, rather than three separate games.
Day 1 Patch
"HITMAN 3 will require a day one patch for all disc users. The day one patch will be automatically applied to digital players. This patch will include access to the VR mode for PlayStation users and will include the remaining locations that are not included on the disc."
The standard edition of HITMAN 3 will cost £49.99 on PC, and £59.99 on Next Gen consoles.
The Deluxe Edition includes new content and will cost £74.99 on PC and £79.99 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Purchasing the game will also grant a free upgrade to the next gen version.
The Deluxe Edition of Hitman 3 contains the following:
- Hitman 3
- Deluxe Escalation Contracts
- Deluxe items and garments
- The digital book "World of HITMAN"
- The digital soundtrack
- Director's comments
The game is available for pre-order, which will also get you the ‘Trinity Pack’ digital content.
The Trinity Pack will include various items such as briefcases, weapons and suits that represent the HITMAN trilogy.
