During Sony’s recent State of Play conference, IO Interactive announced Hitman 3 will be coming to VR. Not only that, though, but the entire World of Assassination from the most recent trilogy will also be brought to VR and made playable from start to finish. More on that below:
From the breathtaking start in a Dubai skyscraper to the final campaign mission of Hitman 3 and the dramatic conclusion to the entire trilogy, it can all be enjoyed in first-person VR.
As a reminder, it will be possible to ‘import’ locations that you own from the previous two Hitman games into Hitman 3, essentially putting all 20+ locations from the entire trilogy in one place.
Hitman 3 VR will change the way you play the game by giving you a first person view and allowing you to get truly immersed into the rich and detailed locations that the series is known for.
Whether you’re in disguise and walking down the catwalk at a fashion show in Paris, enjoying the seaside in Sapienza or infiltrating a bank in New York, Hitman in VR literally gives you a brand new perspective in first person.
You’ll stand face-to-face with your targets and look them in the eyes, blend-in to a busy crowd and hear the chatter and conversations happening around you and interact with items using your hands. For example, you can swing a frying pan in whatever angle you want to knock out a guard – and then use it to deflect any bullets that are fired at you as you make your escape!
Hitman 3‘s VR support is set to launch in January 2021.
