Speaking of looks, Hitman 3 is going to look pretty on next-gen consoles. On PS5, Xbox Series X, and even the Xbox Series S, Hitman 3 will maintain 4K visuals with 60 frames per second. Additionally, the AI enhancements made for the third game in the Assassination Trilogy will be implemented for Hitman (2016) and Hitman 2, meaning there's plenty of reason to delve back into the past two games.

So far, Chongqing is the second brand new location to be unveiled for Hitman 3. Back in August, an old English manor house was revealed for the sequel, which definitely gave off some Knives Out vibes. In addition to the new locations, you'll also be able to import all previous locations from the last two Hitman games if you own them, so there's well over 20 total locations in Hitman 3 if you're a veteran player.

Hitman 3 launches on January 20 for PC, Google Stadia, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. It'll also be available for Nintendo Switch via the cloud, and boasts multiple game modes like Elusive Targets, Escalations, Contracts, and more.
