47’s world is glossier and deadlier than ever before in Hitman 3 gameplay trailer

The Art of Murder

Developer IO Interactive has released the first full gameplay trailer for Hitman 3, the third and final chapter in Agent 47’s globe-trotting “World of Assassination” trilogy. The video showcases everyone’s favorite Suspicious Bald Person as he travels the world meeting interesting people, and killing them.

The three-minute video sees the ICA assassin tackling a whole new series of missions in a selection of distinct locales. From rain-filled neon streets, grim fog-covered marshland, and swanky upscale parties, our one-man army brings the sting of death to some of society’s most powerful and seemingly untouchable villains.

While it can’t be denied that the action in Hitman 3 looks mostly comparable to that of previous releases Hitman and Hitman 2, powerful next-gen graphics bring character models, visual effects, and opulent locales to life like never before. Mr. Tobias Rieper asking to use the bathroom seems a very, very long time ago.

Hitman 3 will launch January 20 on PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Stadia. A Nintendo Switch port – utilizing cloud-streaming technology – is also in the works.
