Agent 47 will pay a visit to the rainy, neon-lit streets of Chongqing in the upcoming release of IO Interactive’s HITMAN 3.
This Chinese transportation hub is home to a number of food stands and shops, all crammed into a maze of tight streets and secret paths.
The proprietary Glacier engine for the game will help this title sound, look, and play better than ever. With it, the development team has been able to make improvements to lighting, reflections, animation, and even AI. This locale will feature full water effects (such as rain drops on clothes) and will allow for up to 300 NPCs to inhabit one space. Finally, for those playing on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, the game will run in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second with HDR support.
