Hitman III reveals Chongqing, China location

IO Interactive has released a new trailer for Hitman III introducing the game’s Chongqing, China location.

Here are the details, via IO Interactive:

Chongqing is a new location for Hitman III, taking Agent 47 to the rainy, neon-lit streets of a Chinese transportation hub packed full of shops and food stands, all crammed into tight streets—with plenty of secrets off the beaten path. Chongqing is also the destination to showcase improvements and refinements coming to Hitman III‘s technology.

Powered by IO Interactive’s proprietary Glacier engine, Hitman III will look, sound and play better than ever with improvements to lighting, reflections, animation and AI. Chongqing also features full water effects, with details such as rain drops hitting Agent 47 and his clothes getting wet, all adding to the immersion of experiencing Hitman III.

On next-gen consoles, Hitman III will run in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second with HDR support. The latest “Under The Hood” trailer showcases this brand new location with smooth new gameplay moments that show off the refinements to interaction animation and AI, as well as Glacier’s crowd technology that will allow up to 300 NPCs in a location at once.

Hitman III players can import locations from the previous games in the trilogy and have more than 20 locations under one roof. All of the improvements to rendering, animation and AI introduced with HITMAN 3 can be enjoyed across all three games, making Hitman III the ultimate place to play the entire World of Assassination trilogy.

Hitman III is due out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via the Epic Games Store, and Stadia on January 20, 2021. A Hitman III – Cloud Version is also in development for Switch.
