Agent 47 will show up in China, too: IO Interactive announced a new location in the final part of the Hitman reboot trilogy.
„Chongqing is a new location for Hitman III, 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 III‘s technology. Powered by IO Interactive’s proprietary Glacier engine, Hitman III will look, sound and play better than ever with improvements to lighting, reflections, animation and AI. Chongqing also features full water effects, with details such as raindrops hitting Agent 47 and his clothes getting wet, all adding to the immersion of experiencing Hitman III.
On next-gen consoles, Hitman III will run in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second with HDR support. The latest “Under The Hood” trailer showcases this brand new location with smooth new gameplay moments that show off the refinements to interaction[-related] animation and AI, as well as Glacier’s crowd technology that will allow up to 300 NPCs in a location at once.
Hitman III 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, making Hitman III the ultimate place to play the entire World of Assassination trilogy,” IO Interactive wrote on its website. In other words, if you have the previous two games, the studio will reward you by allowing you to import the older locations.
Hitman III launches on January 20 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Epic Games Store), Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch will get a cloud version, possibly at a later date.
