A brand new trailer for Hitman 3 is from an unfamiliar perspective: Gamers will have the ability to deal with all the World of Assassination trilogy in digital actuality, and the gameplay footage right here provides us a much wider look at what that’ll appear like in motion on PlayStation VR. (You’ll have to look at it straight on YouTube right here, because the video is age-restricted as a result of, y’know, assassinations.)
We get to see by means of Agent 47’s eyes as he hacks, garrotes, and stalks his manner by means of quite a lot of gorgeous worldwide locales — and likewise as he takes the time to cease and odor the roses or learn a newspaper whereas ready for his goal to go by. Hitman ranges showcased within the trailer embody Paris, Sapienza, and Hokkaido from 2016’s Hitman; Hawke’s Bay and Miami from Hitman 2; and Dubai and Dartmoor from Hitman 3.
There are some fairly nice moments within the trailer, like punching a safety guard proper within the face. That’s positively a bit extra satisfying within the first individual, particularly since Agent 47’s fingers and arms are totally seen and animated. There are additionally a few fast previews of set-pieces and eventualities that we are able to anticipate to see within the ultimate sport. My private favourite is taking pictures a person with a tranq gun for a nonlethal kill that rapidly turns deadly as he tumbles off the sting of a catwalk into oblivion. Oops!
