Become the ultimate assassin, literally

During Sony's State of Play, IO Interactive confirmed some impressive news. Hitman 3 is coming and the title will include a VR option along with the entire trilogy.

That's right, you can play the entire Hitman rebooted trilogy entirely in VR. This is incredibly amazing and perhaps very unsettling. As Hitman is notorious for a lot of graphic kills and judging from the trailer IO Interactive is not shying away from these tactics.

HITMAN 3 will support PlayStation VR at launch in January 2021 – but it’s not only HITMAN 3 locations that are supported. Every location from the World of Assassination trilogy can be enjoyed in VR.

We’re talking more than 20+ locations across all three games that can be explored and experienced in an entirely new way. As a reminder, we revealed in the HITMAN 3 Announcement that it will be possible to ‘import’ locations that you own from the previous two HITMAN games into HITMAN 3. You’ll need to launch locations from HITMAN 3 to play them in VR. We’re working to finalize the specifics for how PSVR owners can enjoy HITMAN in VR, and we’ll have more details to share in the months ahead.

Whether you’re in the mood to dress as Helmut Kruger and walk the catwalk in Paris, infiltrate a bank vault in New York, or even if you just want to relax and listen to the waves gently crashing on the beaches of Sapienza – you can do it all in VR!

Playing in VR will literally change the way you play with a first-person perspective that lets you immerse yourself into the game world. Stand face-to-face with your targets, blend-in to a busy crowd to overhear conversations and interact with the game world using your hands. For example, imagine that you’ve picked up a frying pan and you sneak up on a guard. You can swing the frying pan in whatever angle you want to knock them out – and then use it to deflect bullets that are fired as you make your escape.

HITMAN VR will immerse you into the World of Assassination in a unique way and we can’t wait to see the creative ideas and playthroughs our creative community can come up with when they get their hands on the game in January next year. We’re already looking forward to sharing more details about our VR support for HITMAN 3!

One thing that made GTA V so unsettling in first-person was the immersion of you being face to face with your actions. Acting as Agent 47 in these lethal assassinations is not going to be pretty but the fact IO Interactive is able to do this is a technological milestone.

Hitman 3 is set for a January 2021 release.
