Hitman 3's Opening Cinematic Shows How This Game Will Wrap Up The Trilogy

The cutscene that opens Hitman 3 has been revealed, introducing the game's plot.


Hitman 3, the conclusion to the current Hitman trilogy, releases on January 20, and now the first cinematic has been revealed. If you didn't finish the first two games, you might want to do so before watching it, though.

The trailer shows Agent 47 teaming up with Lucas Grey, the Shadow Client, as they go after Providence together. The organization has been pulling a lot of strings behind the scenes across the entire trilogy, and while Grey was an enemy for much of the first two games, things changed at the end of Hitman 2.

You can watch the full cinematic above, and get excited for Hitman 3's release early next year. The trailer also gives us a brief glimpse of the outside of the Dubai map building, which will be the first mission.

Hitman 3 also recently received a new gameplay trailer, as well as some details about the PS VR options, which are exclusive to the PS4 version (meaning that you should buy it instead of the PS5 version, since you can get a free upgrade anyway--as long as you buy it digitally).

Hitman 3 is also coming to Nintendo Switch in the US via cloud gaming.
