Hitman 3 will, for the first time, enable PlayStation VR support for the entire trilogy. During yesterday’s State Of Play broadcast, an announcement trailer from developers IO Interactive was released, showcasing the surprising new feature for the upcoming game.
At first, Agent 47 is seen from a third-person view, before the camera draws into the back of his head and assumes his first-person perspective. In a rather swanky ballroom, Agent 47 tracks a man into a private room, before cornering him to move in for the kill.
Better yet, it was further announced that PSVR support would be extended to both previous installments, Hitman and Hitman 2.
In other Hitman news, it was announced the rebooted Hitman series would arrive on Google Stadia, as part of the Connect presentation. Other games include Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Serious Sam 4, Dead by Daylight, and NBA 2K21 (a game currently up for grabs for free via the PS Store.)
According to an announcement by IO, Hitman 3 will serve as a conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy, which began in 2016 with the rebooted Hitman.
The studio revealed that Hitman 3 will be supported by his Agency handler, Diana Burnwood. Agent 47 is later reunited with his long-lost friend Lucas Grey, before they take on “their ultimate mission”. Their objective is to “eliminate the partners of Providence, but they are forced to adapt as their hunt intensifies.” The description ends with: “When the dust settles, 47 and the world he inhabits will never be the same again.”
Hitman 3 is due to release January 2021 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
Elsewhere at yesterday's State of Play, new details were confirmed for Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. Boasting new play styles, platforming techniques, and a brand new story, It’s About Time will also allow fans to play as one of four iconic characters: Crash, Coco, Cortex, and Dingodile.
