Hitman 3 Chongqing China Location Revealed, Under the Hood Trailer

Hitman 3

IO Interactive have revealed a new location for stealth assassination game Hitman 3 set in Chongqing, China.

The new area is a run-down city area with many narrow alleys and passageways. This grants the player plenty of areas to ambush unsuspecting victims, but also take advantage of how vertical the level can be through the multi-floor apartments.

The new trailer also shows off more of the Glacier Engine the game is built in; showing improved lighting, rain effects, object interaction animations, and over 300 NPC AIs running at the same time.

The game will also support 4K resolution, 60FPS, and HDR on next-gen consoles. As previously reported, players will be able to import levels from Hitman and Hitman 2; both utilizing the improved graphics.

You can find the Under the Hood trailer below.

In addition, IO Interactive have announced a partnership with Intel for the PC version of the game. In short, this means they are working with Intel to optimize the game (including post-launch with updates through 2021) for high-end and mutli-core PCs.

Examples given include more crowds in Dubai, complex destructible environments in Dartmoor, and Variable Rate Shading to prioritize GPU resources. There will also be Ray Tracing introduced to the game in 2021.

You can find the full rundown (via the official website) below.
