The final part of the Hitman trilogy was released, so specialists from Digital Foundry decided to test the technical condition of the game on consoles. Disclaimer in advance: PS4 and Xbox One did not participate in the tests, Hitman 3 runs on them in 30 frames, with the exception of PS4 Pro.
- PS5 – 1800p / 60 FPS
- Xbox Series X – native 4K / 60 FPS
- Xbox Series S – 1080p / 60 FPS
The numbers are interesting, but the point is in the details. First of all, DF noted that all three consoles demonstrate almost steel 60 FPS, but there are still exceptions on the Xbox Series, when drops to 53-54 frames per second occur.
In addition, Series S uses low quality shadows (PS4 and Xbox One tier), PS5 already uses mid tier (PS4 Pro and Xbox One X equivalent), and Series X uses high quality. The difference is not so noticeable, but still present. Textures are sharper on PS5 and Xbox Series X than on Series S.
Digital Foundry experts praised IO Interactive for their optimization, saying all three consoles show nearly identical levels of quality and performance. The authors also noted the download speed – it quadrupled.
Hitman 3 is available on PC and both generations of consoles.
