If you've been busy throwing random objects at witnesses to your botched assassinations in Hitman 3, you may have noticed an update hit the PlayStation 5 yesterday. This new patch, which takes the game to version 1.002, adds some cool functionality, but you wouldn't know because you can't see patch notes on PS5. Fortunately, IO Interactive has your back.
The developer has provided an explanation for what this update does on its website. With this new patch, Hitman 3 supports PS5's Game Help feature. This system-level function, only available to PS Plus members, uses Activity Cards to provide tips on specific objectives in their games, with short written hints, screenshots, and videos pointing you in the right direction. IO Interactive has embraced this feature with both arms; it has added Game Help for every mission across the World of Assassination trilogy. That means Hitman, Hitman 2, and Hitman 3 all now have step-by-step guides for each stage.
This is all of course optional assistance, and doesn't affect the games themselves. Still, it's good to see third party teams utilising all of PS5's bells and whistles. It's not something everyone will use, but we're sure it'll help a good few players make some progress.
Will you be using Hitman 3's new Game Help functionality? How much have you used Game Help on PS5 so far? Lend a helping hand in the comments section below.
