HITMAN 3 Changes to World of Assassination Today; New Major Update Live

Hitman: World of Assassination
Hitman: World of Assassination IO Interactive

The HITMAN storefront has been simplified as previously promised. HITMAN 1, HITMAN 2, and HITMAN 3 are now combined and are called HITMAN: World of Assassination. More details are mentioned in our previous article.

Developer IO Interactive isn’t done with the game just yet after it released a major update today that brought new content, features, and several improvements. The brand-new roguelike mode called Freelancer is now available for free.

New graphical features like DLSS 3 with Frame Generation are implemented as well. On top of that, players with GeForce 900 series and above GPUs can now use Nvidia Reflex to reduce latency and make the game feel more responsive.

World of Assassination
  • The game’s icon, PC Launcher, boot screen and attraction screen (press X to play) have all been updated to the new WOA branding.
  • The in-game hub has been changed to accommodate Freelancer and put a focus on the Story. Players will now have a clear choice of Story or Freelancer from the Featured hub.
  • A new LIVE tab will be the new destination for the most recent Elusive Targets, Arcade Contracts, Escalations and other fitting content.
  • New players will now start directly at the ICA Facility location, as we want them to start their WOA experience from the very beginning.
  • We’ve also taken the time to update the sound effects on the IOI logo on game launch, update the credits for work done on Freelancer and update our legal line.
  • We’ve resolved various issues that could cause the game to crash or be unstable in various ways.
Run Toggle Revisited
In the October Patch, we added an option for players to enable a toggle option when they wanted 47 to run/jog/sprint. Now, we’ve expanded and updated some of those options.
  • HOLD (unchanged): The player must hold the run button
  • TOGGLE (changed): The player may press the run button at any time. 47’s speed persists even when he stops moving. An icon in the bottom-left will show his current speed.
  • PRESS (new): The player must press run when walking. If 47 was already walking, he will run. If he was already running, nothing will happen. When he stops moving, his speed resets to a “walk.”

You can read the complete patch notes via the official site.
