During the PS5 launch event, Sony enlisted some of the most anticipated game titles launching alongside the next-generation console for the 2020 holiday season including the series of Hitman 3
Developed by Danish Company IO Interactive, the stealth assassination, Hitman has become a rage after their first release in the 2000s with Codename 47, Silent Assassin, Contracts, Blood Money and Absolution, in that order. After being worked on by Eidos Interactive and Square Enix, IO Interactive will once again develop this game.
This time, expect the game bars higher than ever with all-new locations, real-feel environment, investigative killings, and Agent 47 at a cocktail party in Dubai.

Hitman 3 Gameplay
The new series of the stealth assassination will be released a few months after the PS5 hits shelves worldwide. The concluding series of the World Assassination trilogy will see Hitman 3 with Agent 47 again as the protagonist.
The gameplay had to be location-centric to provide an immersive experience of surrounding to access things and material around to learn about the storyline. Possibly assassinate in the coveted mode. Out of the six locations, Dubai is one of the prime locations that they have harpooned in the desert.
People describing it as “Sprawling Sandbox Locations” is quite what we are able to see is undeniably right. As with Hitman and Hitman 2, the real stars of the show were these exotic sandbox locations, so it already sets up the expectation of intense suspense and thrills inside Dubai’s mega skyscrapers.
Hitman and Amchi Mumbai!
Agent 47 can be seen sprawling across the busy Mumbai streets to complete its assassination challenges. Though this map is quite difficult than the rest of them, you will need to explore the area around to know your objectives. You may have to encounter street gangsters like you must’ve seen in Chris Hemsworth’s Extraction, distributed in the city’s hustle-bustle. You better kill them when you get a chance.
With three main areas to explore, and a deadly street gang to struggle with. It is one of the hardest maps in the game, with some of the best assassination for any Indian player as well. Fortunately, as many people are there in the game, as many chances you are left to blend in the crowd.
You will be required to explore the city, tower, and train station areas to assassinate all three people and complete your objectives. In terms of replayability, don’t lose hope. As and when you explore, you will find intrinsic assassination opportunities to kill in stealth.
The trailers open by saying“It’s always going to end like this”. With three-armed agent searching in a dark forest with their flashlights. “All your hard work, all your sacrifice, only sped up the process.” One of the agents discovers a body as the voice continues, “And now, you find yourself alone.” Agent 47 arrives checking the pulse as the voice says, “Only death awaits.”
Hitman series would be released right after the release of PS5 but the game is going to be in testing phase with its released scheduled for January 2021.
