New Hitman 3 Location Revealed as Chongqing, China


IO INTERACTIVE TODAY released a new Hitman 3 gameplay trailer introducing the Chongqing location in southwestern China. This is the third Hitman 3 location to be revealed ahead of the game’s launch in January 2021.

The new location will take Agent 47 to the neon-lit streets of Chongqing where all of your actions will have consequences. This is the third Hitman 3 location to be revealed, with the announcement trailer showcasing the Dubai location and another trailer revealing Dartmoor in Southern England. With over 300 uniquely acting NPC’s on-screen at any given moment, Hitman 3 will test the boundaries of the new Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles.

Independant developers IO Interactive have stated clearly that Hitman 3 will be the final game in a story arc that will span a full trilogy, and recently revealed that they are now working on a new James Bond game which is currently titled Project 007.

Watch the Hitman 3 Chongqing Location Reveal ‘Under the Hood’ trailer below:

 

Chongqing is a new location for HITMAN 3, 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 3’s technology.

Powered by IO Interactive’s proprietary Glacier engine, HITMAN 3 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 3.

Hitman 3 will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5 and Windows PC in January 2021. For more information, head to the official website.
