Crikey, this is exciting! Following its shock announcement last week, IO Interactive has showcased some more Hitman 3 VR gameplay footage, which includes context from the Danish team. The developers discuss how leveraging PlayStation VR brings you closer to the action, allowing you to get up-close-and-personal with your targets.
It also improves the virtual tourism that the series is known for, allowing you to physically exist within up to 20 different locations, ranging from Paris to Miami to Dubai. It seems motion controls will be included, as it’s mentioned that you’ll be able to tease enemies by tapping them with crowbars before taking them out, while you’ll physically be able to peek around corners to use your weapons.
Interestingly, there’s no specific mention of the PlayStation Move motion controllers, so it’ll be fascinating to see if Sony has a different kind of peripheral in the pipeline for PS5 that’s yet to be announced. Either way, we’re extremely excited to get to grips with this – it’s clearly going to be a game changer for a series that already comes highly recommended.
