It's big trouble in little China when Hitman 3 goes to Chongqing


Looks that kill

I'm killing in the rain. Just killing in the rain. What a glorious feeling, I'm happy again.

Scratch that. Cloned killing machines do not feel happiness. They just execute on their executions and then move onto the next murder.

IO Interactive has revealed the third Hitman 3 locale. This time, it's a neon-soaked Chongqing, China, as Agent 47 ascends apartments stacked on top of each other, all in pursuit of his next unlucky target. Chongqing seems quite thematically different from the Dubai espionage setting and the England countryside murder mystery.

This unveiling is a bit less Hollywood-produced than the first two. Instead, IO has opted to use Chongqing's announcement as a showcase for its Glacier engine. The trailer shows how developers build parts of levels, including the impressive water/rain effects and the ability to use more than 300 NPCs in a single location. IO also confirms that Hitman 3 will have 4K, 60fps gameplay, and HDR on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Come for all the killing, stay because it looks so good. Sure -- that's the only reason you're staying, you absolute psychopath.
