Hitman 3 Looks Incredibly Good In VR

Assassinations have never been so personal. Another new trailer for the upcoming Hitman 3 has been shared, this time showcasing Agent 47’s exploits in mind-blowing VR. The release of Hitman 3 in a couple of weeks’ time will conclude the Word of Assassination trilogy, and it looks set to take the player on a fully immersive final experience.

While the rest of the world may have come to a grinding halt, Agent 47 is still globetrotting like it’s 2019. IOI has already shared snippets from some of the spectacular locations that are in store for fans of the Hitman series in this third and final hurrah. From the moody neon lit streets of Chongqing to the leafy grounds of rural England, Hitman 3 players will be able to experience the jet set lifestyle once more this January.

Now another teaser for Hitman 3 has been released, this time focusing on the awesome use of VR during gameplay. PlayStation shared the trailer, that shows off just how captivating the gameplay will be when experienced through the eyes of Agent 47. While viewers may not catch a glimpse of the protagonist’s trademark barcoded bald head, this is undoubtedly a Hitman game. Fans of the series will know fully just how anything that Agent 47 gets his hands on can be turned into a weapon, and this is still the case from a first-person perspective. With the use of everything from a doctored syringe to a soon to be bloody meat cleaver shown during the clip, gamers are offered an even more up close and personal Hitman experience. Even a piano is a deadly assassination tool when used in the right hands.

It is not just the new levels within Hitman 3 that can be experienced in VR mode, however. The previous two entries to the series will also be opened up with the release of the third instalment. This means that players can once more visit the breath-taking vistas of Hokkaido or dip their feet in the clear waters of the Maldives. Assassinations or no assassinations, this is definitely a tempting prospect right now.

VR is not the only new feature coming to Hitman 3. A video was recently shared that showed off the new “persistent shortcuts” available within the game’s levels. In a style that many may recognize from games such as Bloodborne, 47 can release ladders throughout his missions, that will allow the player to revisit previous areas from a new angle. This will set up new and creative ways for fans to get their targets set in their sights, for some truly epic takedowns.

IOI have announced that Hitman 3 will be its last venture to the worlds of Diana and Agent 47, at least for the foreseeable future. From now on, the company is setting its focus on its own take on the James Bond series. That said, the company certainly looks to be sending the Hitman series out in style though.
