Will Hitman 3 be a fitting conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy? Some fans are probably asking this question. Before that can be answered on January 20, 2021, let’s take a look at the career of the famous assassin:
Hitman 3 is in the starting blocks. While connoisseurs are already happily packing the murderous instruments of their choice as well as explosive ducklings, newcomers are asking themselves: who is actually that bald assassin and does he really have a barcode on the back of his head? We’ll take you briefly through the Hitman universe and then maybe you’ll feel like getting into the hitman business.
Hitman 3: The universe is diverse
Hitman: code name 47
The absolute stealth master appeared on the scene more than 20 years ago. He has no name, just a number. Agent 47 is a clone created by Doctor Ortmeyer to be the best hit man in the world. To do this justice, the player must infiltrate the areas unnoticed and carry out the best possible murder. It doesn’t matter whether it’s up close, disguised as an accident or disguised as a gardener.
Hitman: Silent Assassin
In Hitman: Silent Assassin (2002) 47 actually wanted to retire in a monastery. As a true gardener, he looks after the Order’s outdoor facilities while he seeks inner peace in conversations with his mentor, father Emilio Vittorio. But his past quickly catches up with him and has to swap rake and tab for a few firearms. Thanks to the new suspicion feature, the new missions are harder than ever. For a good rating, the assassin must now pay attention to an inconspicuous and low-noise procedure.
Hitman: Contracts (2004) is a bit confused. No wonder, our agent was badly injured on an assignment and now sees his murderous life go by. Little by little it is revealed how the assassin got his injury.
Lots of rain, lots of snow, but this part didn’t have much to offer in terms of play.
