Agent 47 is back for more murderous antics

What is Hitman 3?

Hitman 3 is an upcoming entry to the long-running (and hugely popular) Hitman video game franchise.

Like those before it, Hitman 3 is a stealth game through and through – requiring you to sneak around and snuff baddies without alerting…well, anyone.

It’s available on most platforms, including the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.

You’ll travel to new and exotic locations…just don’t slip

This is the third (and reportedly final) instalment of the World of Assassination trilogy, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Hitman.

It’s being developed and published by IO Interactive.

  • Microsoft Windows
  • PlayStation 4
  • PlayStation 5
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series X/S

Dubai is one of the locations featured in Hitman 3

Notable on that list is Google Stadia, which is a game-streaming platform.

It means you can play Hitman 3 even without a fancy computer or new console – just a regular laptop and good internet connection will do.

Hitman 3 news and rumours – what do we know so far?

We know that Hitman 3 is a stealth game with a 3rd-person view, just like previous games.

You’ll be playing as the legendary Agent 47, who will travel around the world to perform contract-kills on various targets.

There are six locations in the base game, including Dubai, Dartmoor, Berlin and Chongqing.

Stunning graphics will help showcase the power of next-gen gaming systems

If you owned the earlier Hitman games (from 2016 and 2018) then you can import your old maps, levels and progress into Hitman 3.

This will also optimise those previous games for improved performance.

There’s no multiplayer mode in Hitman 3.

And the game is expected to be “more mature, serious and darker”.

In other news, HOAR’s favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.

Grab a VR headset and you’ll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.

And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
