Hitman 3 new location revealed, runs at 4K/60 fps on PS5

IO Interactive has detailed what we can expect from its proprietary game engine and Hitman 3 with a new location reveal video.


Players will be jetting off to the neon-lit streets of Chongqing in southwest China. In the video, IO community developer Clemens Koch explains that with IOI's Glacier engine, lighting and reflections have been improved and look much more realistic. Animations have been tightened to make the game feel more fluid, and thanks to improvements in AI, IO Interactive says that over 300 NPCs can be active in a level — which is pretty insane. All of these features will be coming to Hitman and Hitman 2, as locations from both previous games can be imported into Hitman 3 at no additional cost for existing owners.

On PS5, IOI has confirmed that Hitman 3 will support 4K/60fps and HDR.

Hitman 3 comes to PS5 on January 20th, 2021.
