PlayStation recently held its latest State of Play, where the console manufacturer gave particular attention to its PlayStation VR system. One of the biggest announcements by far was the revelation that the entire HITMAN ‘World of Assassination’ Trilogy will be playable in VR.
On its website, developer IO Interactive stated that “We are excited to reveal that HITMAN 3 will launch with VR support! We’ve been working on this for a while and now we’re ready to share the first details of what to expect when you virtually step into Agent 47’s world.”
Providing more details on Hitman VR, IOI revealed that “HITMAN 3 will support PlayStation VR at launch in January 2021 – but it’s not only HITMAN 3 locations that are supported. Every location from the World of Assassination trilogy can be enjoyed in VR. We’re talking more than 20+ locations across all three games that can be explored and experienced in an entirely new way.”
Though currently there is no information on whether HITMAN VR will expand beyond PlayStation to PC platforms, IOI did reveal that “we’re already looking forward to sharing more details about our VR support for HITMAN 3!” suggesting perhaps that it’ll hopefully make its way to PC in the future.
Being able to “stand face-to-face with your targets, blend-in to a busy crowd to overhear conversations and interact with the game world using your hands” should certainly provide a new perspective on the much-loved long-running series. It’ll be interesting to see what else is in store for VR in the future.
