Hitman 3's Dartmoor Location Adds A Murder Mystery For Players To Solve

Hitman 3 will launch with six locations in January 2021, and we now know that one of them will be the Thornbridge Manor in Dartmoor, England.

This grey, creepy-looking mansion looks to be full of secrets and offers a change of pace for Agent 47.

This time around, our protagonist is not only trying to eliminate a target, but also solve a murder that has occurred on the premises.

Here's what Nick Price, the game's lead writer, had to say about the location in a recent blog post:

“HITMAN missions are very complicated affairs with plenty of moving parts and lots of characters you are able to interact with in a huge variety of ways. In Dartmoor’s murder mystery, we are dialling all of that up to 11.

Every member of the family is a possible suspect and it’s been quite the challenge to make sure everything doesn’t fall apart just because the player wants to play around. In fact, that sort of behaviour should be rewarded in a HITMAN game, so we have been working hard on making sure that depending on what a player discovers during their investigation, outcomes might differ. It’s going to be great fun to see how everyone tackles this particular problem next year.”

Back in Hitman Contracts, players infiltrated the Beldingford Manor, so he's no stranger to executing enemies in posh English homes.
