Hitman 3 is just a few days away from launching but developer IO Interactive has shared only a handful of snippets of the game running on PlayStation VR. That changed today, with a look at all three games in the trilogy from the perspective of Agent 47.
Available on PS4 and PS5 (albeit with the PS4 version of the game), all three entries in IO’s rebooted Hitman franchise will be playable with PSVR. The levels, objectives, and targets all remain the same, but this time you’re able to deliver your precise or ridiculous death dealing from a first-person perspective. Or just sip on an espresso and read the newspaper in Sapienza; it’s your sandbox to explore.
To get it working in VR, the game has been significantly changed graphically, which is evident in the footage above, but the alternative way to play should provide you with even more incentive to revisit levels from across the series. VR functionality is limited to PSVR for now, even though Hitman 3 is launching on PC too.
Just like Hitman 2, Hitman 3 will let you import any levels from previous titles into the game and have them benefit from graphical improvements that have been added. This includes better reflections, lighting, and more that will be applied to everything in the series.
Hitman 3 is launching on January 20 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5, and PC via the Epic Games Store. The game will also be available for streaming via Google Stadia and Nintendo Switch in select regions.
