Agent 47 is reunited with his long-lost friend Lucas Grey as they begin their hunt for the partners of Providence. Witness the opening cinematic to the game and prepare for the dramatic conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy.
Two mission locations have been revealed:
Two editions of the game will be available on release - Standard and Deluxe at $60 and $80 respectively. The game will release with separate versions for PS4 and PS5, Xbox (old and new), Stadia and PC (via Epic Games exclusive - which is irritating with the previous two games on Steam, but there is a decent regional price on Epic for SA buyers, so there is that I guess…).
They mention that Hitman 1 and 2 will be upgraded through Hitman 3. I suspect that it will work in a similar way to what Hitman 1 was playable through the sequels engine if you owned both. But how do you get the Steam version of 1 and 2 to work through the Epic version of 3?
I’m just going to wait for the Steam version like I did with Borderlands 3. I liked the previous 2 games, but they are somewhat slow-paced so I have to be in the mood to play them.
Hope they have proper cutscenes this time (like with Hitman 1).
You will be able to carry over progression only from HITMAN 2 (base game + DLC + Legacy). But you will be able to carry over locations from both HITMAN 2016 and HITMAN 2. (Progression carryover is optional.)
!! STEAM TO EPIC GAMES PROGRESS TRANSFER WILL BE POSSIBLE !! (THE SPECIFICS ARE NOT KNOWN YET. THIS THREAD WILL BE UPDATED ONCE WE KNOW SPECIFICALLY HOW THE PROGRESS TRANSFER WILL WORK.) Cross-platform progression carryover details not known at the moment. Epic Games Store to Steam progression carryover details not known at the moment.
People who do not already own HITMAN 2016 and/or HITMAN 2 will be able to buy the levels through HITMAN 3. So don’t worry if you don’t own the past 2 games.
Don’t feel too bad console buddies. Regional pricing for the game has been stripped on the PC version as well now. If you didn’t pre-order on Epic at R437 (@Entity is the only one I know of who did - clever man!) you’re now looking at a R1009 cost on Standard and R1519 for Deluxe Editions.
I’ll be waiting the year until it gets to Steam, and then hoping for a GotY Edition and a steep discount.
