IO Interactive has dropped two new trailers for Hitman 3, which launches next week on January 20, 2021.
In spite of a few issues – including the loss of its original publisher – the work IO Interactive has done on the rebooted Hitman trilogy has been consistently brilliant. Its no surprise, then, that the developer gets to turn its stealthy, murderous hand to the James Bond franchise.
But back on the Hitman trilogy and its (presumed) swansong, Hitman 3, we’ve got two new trailers to enjoy.
The first, the Dartmoor reveal trailer, shows off one of the game’s sumptuous locations, based on the national park moorland in Devon, in the south-west of England.
After a trailer that focuses on the wealthy lords and ladies of the manor, presumably targets for the eponymous hitman, it’s pleasing to see Agent 47 turn up masquerading as a police officer at the end. Costumes are so often the best bits of Hitman, and Hitman 3 looks to be no exception to that rule.
The second is a gameplay trailer which – as a Hitman trailer should – shows off a mix of sneaky murdering methods, costumes, locales and targets.
There’s a snippet of Agent 47 holding a briefcase at 2:13. Here’s hoping they still home in when you chuck them in Hitman 3.
