Hitman III released yesterday and there wasn't a thread about it, so now there is one. It's available on PC (Epic), Xbox, Playstation, Stadia, and, apparently, Switch (?!).
The 2016 Hitman reboot and Hitman 2 were both great games, even if I spent much more time watching them played than actually playing them myself. I'm excited to get into Hitman 3 when I have the chance, although I hear there were some extra missions added to Hitman 2 over its life that may have story stuff I should explore first? I have investigating to do.
Hitman 3 (I felt compelled to use the Roman numerals for the thread title since that's the way the game styles it, but I find that tedious when actually writing about the game) has a feature that will let you import your progress from Hitman 2 if you're playing on the same general platform (Xbox One -> Series X, PS4 -> PS5). Last night, when I tried to jump into the game, this tool was totally broken, a web-based tool that was clearly just getting pummeled. This morning I tried again and it told me it successfully imported my (somewhat meager) progress from Hitman 2, but when I got to the game that progress didn't show up, so, I'm going to take another run at figuring that one out.
I'm excited to get digging into this game and will be interested to hear your stories as you all play, and welcome any fun videos and streams of wacky happenings in the game.
