Hitman 3 was announced earlier this year as part of the PS5 reveal stream. The game is set to launch early next year, and now fans have a better idea of what will be on tap. While it doesn’t appear that IO Interactive is introducing anything massive, series fans will be happy to see most of the modes they know and love coming back. Give it a look below.

Obviously, the Hitman 3 campaign remains the major focus for the team. That’s the series’ bread-and-butter. You can’t expect them to change that with the final entry in this current trilogy. However, it’s far from the only way to play.

Elusive Targets have always been one of the most exciting ways to play Hitman. They return, though the team is committed to making some changes. IOI just isn’t ready to reveal exactly what those are yet. Contracts and Escalations are also sticking around. For franchise newbies, Escalations slowly add new wrinkles to a hit, forcing you to learn the ins-and-outs of each map. Contracts let you set up your own special hits, which you can then share with your friends.

The team is also bringing back the Sniper Assassin mode; however, this go-around you’ll only be able to play it solo. IOI is also sunsetting the Hitman 2 co-op servers, so you won’t be able to play the mode through multiplayer anymore.

Finally, Hitman 3 will not feature Ghost Mode. The Hitman 2 servers for the mode are going offline on August 31. So, get in those games, if you want before it’s gone forever.

Hitman 3 is set to drop in January of next year for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
