Hitman 3’s year 2 will be revealed very soon – here are five things we know are coming

Hitman 3 is one of the best games of 2021 – the sixth best in our opinion – and the fact that it happens to include the content of some of the best games of 2016 and 2018 certainly does not hurt. Hitman 3 gets even more things to do as part of Year 2 of 2022, and while the developers at IO Interactive are holding the full unveiling tomorrow, they have already announced some details on what to expect.

The official Hitman 3 Year Two unveiling stream is set for January 13 at 7 p.m. 6.00 PST / 9.00 EST / 14.00 GMT on the official Hitman YouTube channel. The stream will be a 15-minute pre-recorded video with both announcements and recordings of the upcoming content. The exact content of the stream is a mystery, but the developers have been teasing year 2 since November 2021.

First, we know we get new cards. We have seen some glimpses of what looks like a new hideout or training area for 47, but hopefully the content of the new year will also include some more extensive murder sites. The stream will also bring us the revelation of a fire new game mode, though that may be the bit IO has been most quiet about.

We get one Elusive Target Arcade, which will offer a “change of the established formula in this fan-favorite game mode”. IO has not yet revealed what that change will be, but Elusive Target Arcade content will remain in the game permanently – no more time limits.

Finally, for us PC gamers, we get PC VR support launched sometime this month. The PC version of Hitman 3 also gets beam tracking in 2022, for a little extra visual flair. Fans are also hoping for a Steam release – of course, it’s almost a year ago that Hitman 3 hit Epic – but whether it will be announced in this stream is still unknown.
