Hitman 3 gets another year of DLC, including new maps, storylines, modes and gameplay

Pack your briefcase, pack your explosive rubber duck, get ready to deal with some wealthy tyrants, because Killer 3 Come back for more. In the new blog postIO Interactive announced that the bald Assassin Agent 47 that everyone loves will return in 2022 with “new maps, storylines, modes, and gameplay.”

According to the blog and the new video (below), the second year of “Hitman 3” will begin on January 20, 2022, after which it will be confirmed that post-launch support will continue for 12 months.

Some of the announced game upgrades include ray tracing (available on PC in 2022), VR (available on PC in 2022), and Elusive Targets Arcade.

This is positioned as “one of the new gameplay”. “Get ready to accept the ultimate Elusive Target challenge and change the established formula in this fan favorite game mode,” the blogger said. “All Elusive Target Arcade content will be permanently added to the game. Full details on how this game mode works will be shared in early January 2022.”

There are no specific details about the new maps, modes, or other gameplay methods, but obviously we will learn more about the upcoming content (called “major updates”) in the spring of 2022. Given that IO Interactive concluded that we won’t get a new map in the interview earlier this year, this support is music for us.

IO Interactive also announced that the total number of players in the entire “Assassination World” trilogy (ie restarting all games in the game) has reached 50 million, and “Hitman 3” is now the most successful killer game ever. Not bad because it has only been launched for less than a year.

But considering that “Hitman 3” is already profitable and recovered the total project cost in less than a week, this is not surprising, is it?
