The first anniversary of Hitman 3 is coming up in two months, and creator IO Interactive has big plans for the game's second year, including the long-awaited addition of additional areas and modes. With support for 8+ core CPUs and variable-rate shading, the game is already optimised and extended for PC. IO Interactive will also integrate ray tracing to Hitman 3 in 2022, in collaboration with Intel. Hitman 3 is already available on PlayStation with PSVR support, but it will also be available for VR PC in January 2022.

Hitman 3 PC VR Update

One of the most major updates coming in the Hitman 3 is the addition of VR compatibility for PC, as the VR version of the game was previously only available on PlayStation VR. Hitman 3 VR is briefly demonstrated in the "Year 2" trailer using both an Oculus Rift S and a Valve Index. The experience currently appears to be more realistic than the PSVR edition, which only allows the DualShock 4 gamepad and its limited motion controls, with the more intuitive Move controllers being excluded.


Apart from the PC release of Hitman 3 VR, IO Interactive also confirmed that the game has now achieved 50 million players, making it the most popular Hitman game in the series. In addition, IO Interactive plans to release a number of new maps, narratives, and modes next year, as well as a permanent Elusive Target Arcade mode and PC ray-tracing compatibility.

In Spring 2022, IO Interactive will release another significant update for Hitman 3, with new areas, narratives, and modes planned for the following 12 months In a blog post, IO highlighted one of the new modes: Elusive Target Arcade, which will feature "in this fan-favourite game mode, the ultimate Elusive Target challenge in a departure from the traditional formula "Most importantly, everything in Elusive Target Arcade will be a permanent addition to the game," says the developer "IO believes so.


The Hitman 3 fans who have played or are planning to play Hitman 3 on Windows PC will get a treat in 2022 with Hitman 3 update. The PC version of the game was released as a 12-month Epic Games Store exclusive, meaning once the game's first birthday approaches on Jan. 20, 2022, it will presumably be distributed on Steam and other PC shops.
