A brand new trailer for Hitman 3 is from an unfamiliar perspective: Players will be capable to deal with all of the World of Assassination trilogy in digital actuality, and the gameplay footage right here provides us a wider look at what that’ll seem like in motion on PlayStation VR. (You’ll must watch it directly on YouTube here, since the video is age-restricted as a consequence of, y’know, assassinations.)
We get to see by way of Agent 47’s eyes as he hacks, garrotes, and stalks his means by way of a wide range of beautiful worldwide locales — and in addition as he takes the time to cease and scent the roses or learn a newspaper whereas ready for his goal to move by. Hitman ranges showcased in 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 in the trailer, like punching a safety guard proper in the face. That’s positively somewhat extra satisfying in the first individual, particularly since Agent 47’s palms and arms are absolutely seen and animated. There are additionally a few fast previews of set-pieces and situations that we will count on to see in the closing sport. My private favourite is capturing a person with a tranq gun for a nonlethal kill that shortly turns deadly as he tumbles off the fringe of a catwalk into oblivion. Oops!
