Gripping news about the upcoming sneaky, stealth game Hitman 3.
With Hitman 3 official release due in January of 2023, A new trailer has just been dropped by the IO Interactive revealing new location for the game and very exciting additional news for the fans. Buckle up and free some space on your HDDs as you’re getting a free game!
Ultimately, ‘The world of Assassination’ trilogy in Hitman is coming to an end with this last game in the series.
In Hitman 1, We traveled almost half of the world from Greenland to Japan.
Similarly, Hitman 2 took us from NewZealand to different countries such as India, Colombia, and the Maldives then finally to Russia.
Up until now, We knew only about one location of the new Hitman 3 which was Dubai, but now, thanks to the new trailer, We have one more location thanks to the new trailer.
The new trailer for Hitman 3 opens with the new location for the game, and it’s non-other than the English countryside named ‘Dartmoor’, England.
Hitman 3 Trailer Explained
The trailer gives some plot for the mission.
Some rich and very weird residents of the ‘Thornbridge Manor’ had an alleged suicide. The room was locked from the inside and a death note was left on a table. But there is a twist. This is not a suicide but a murder. Someone from within the family could be involved but nobody knows who.
To figure this mystery out, A detective is called for the purpose of investigation in order to determine what actually happened.
You probably guessed it right. The detective is non-other than Hitman, known as Agent 47. Master of deception and disguise, Agent 47 is here as an ‘undercover’ detective.
Notice the faultlessness of the situation from an assassin’s point of view. The location is confirmed for assassination i.e. Thornbridge Manor. Disguise is already in place i.e. The ‘detective’. Somebody is already dead in the place so it will be quite easy to assassinate one and put blame on someone else. How perfect, No?
No wonder the IO Interactive’s Haken Abrak mentioned that in Hitman 3, “Agent 47 is back for his most intimate and professional contract in his entire career”.
