This week we finally got confirmation of that Hitman 3 platinum trophy I’ve been craving. We also got a look at every single location in the game. I love the locations in the Hitman series, they’re the second-biggest stars right after Agent 47 himself. I’m eager to explore of them, and here are my reasons why.
I think the whole world knows that I’m eager to play this mission. It’s the opening one, and it’ll set the tone for the rest of the game. It’ll be interesting to see just how the targets work against you when they know their partner has been killed.
Dartmoor, United Kingdom
This mission is a murder mystery. I don’t know about you, but I bloody love a murder mystery TV show. England is full of them, which is why I think it’s the perfect setting for a Hitman murder mystery mission. Here I’ll be all about exploring the clues, and finding the sneakiest ways to take out my targets that no one else will think of.
This area seems to be all about the nightlife of Berlin. I think that will mean that there are clubs going nuts everywhere, with secret illicit meetings on rooftops to boot. I want to see this area of the game from every angle. I think the buildings will be oppressively beautiful and make for great points to throw someone off of.
This location is all about the gang that’s patrolling it. I think Agent 47 will be way out of his depth here, but that’s okay. The closed-off streets will make a perfect place to create traps for any guards who get the wrong idea. I’m also quite excited to see if there’s a cat cafe lurking around here somewhere.
This mission looks a lot like Sapienza, my favourite from Hitman. I want to see how we can combine the jungle foliage and the giant mansion into one giant game of hide and seek. I reckon that this might be the hardest mission to take on in Silent Assassin mode, but I’m up for the challenge.
Carpathian Mountains, Romania
As the final mission, this looks desolate and lonely. I think this will be a personal mission of revenge for Agent 47, and that means that it should be filled with enemies that I want to kill. I want to see how the weather can be used for cover here, because that’s not necessarily something we’ve seen a lot of in the Hitman series.
