Hitman 3 Chongqing Location Revealed Alongside Engine Improvements

Check out the new location in the trailer below:

The new location appears to offer plenty of verticality as well as a stunning amount of detail, bought to life by the latest version of the Glacier engine.

IO notes improved weather detail, lighting, and tweaked animations to allow for more fluidity.

The team also notes that these improvements will be retroactively added to Hitman (2016) and Hitman 2 when played via Hitman 3, as the game brings the "World of Assassination" trilogy to a close.


On PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X, the game will support 4K, HDR and 60 FPS gameplay.

It's been a busy few days for the developer, as they confirmed a partnership with Intel to improve Hitman 3 on high-end PCs, as well as revealing that they have begun work on a James Bond title.
