Hitman III reveals Chongqing, China location

Late last month, Danish developer IO Interactive revealed that Hitman 3 - Cloud Version will be coming to Nintendo Switch.

Game company IO Interactive has announced their partnership with Intel to provide the best possible performance and optimization for upcoming video game Hitman 3 on PC.

In case you missed the overview of Hitman 3, here it is from the game's official website. Another level, inspired by the 2019 film Knives Out, will send 47 to a manor in the English countryside where he'll have to solve a murder.

Water effects have also been enhanced so that walking through puddles gives more realistic ripples, droplets will bounce off Agent 47's shiny noggin, and he'll actively get wet in the environment.

Naturally, IO Interactive worked to further build upon Glacier's AI capabilities.

Hitman III is due out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via the Epic Games Store, and Stadia on January 20, 2021.

In a second announcement, IO shared details about the even-more-powerful PC version of the game. It will improve the experience of playing on high-end PC and multi-core CPUs. As a result, upwards of 300 NPCs can appear on screen at once, guaranteeing Hitman 3 immerses players in a truly livelier world compared to the franchise's previous installments. Surprisingly, though, ray tracing will be a feature of the game, but won't arrive until after the game has launched. As the announcement points out, the original Hitman: Codename 47 used revolutionary ragdoll physics and animation that set a standard for the gaming industry.
