In the new Hitman 3 development video diary, the writers talked about the approach to storytelling. They stated that in the last game of the trilogy, the plot is closely related to the gameplay.
According to them, Hitman 1 and 2 were dark only in terms of history, and the gameplay, the gaming experience itself – more frivolous, even fun. The third part will be different – a gloomy tone for the whole game. In addition, even some important plot points will be presented in the gameplay, rather than cut-scenes.
Agent 47 will have to deal with the mysterious powerful organization Providence. The hero realizes himself as a person, and Diana will test her principles and ideals for strength.
According to the writers, the first part only introduced the players to the new world of the trilogy, which is why there was so little complete plot in it. The sequel made the story more important. From the hints, the last part is filled with unexpected twists and in general is rich in plot.
Hitman 3 will be released on January 20.
