Get into the head of Agent 47 as Hitman 3 VR comes to Meta Quest 3

The Hitman series has dabbled with VR with the Playstation 4 version of Hitman 3. It seems IOI interactive wanted to further explore VR and has recruited XR Games to lead this effort. As the companies announced today that they will be bringing Agent 47 onto the Meta Quest 3 headset this summer with Hitman 3 VR: Reloaded.

Promising to leverage the power of the Meta Quest 3, this title is built from the ground up and will incorporate a new visual style, movement methods, environmental interactivity and the ability to dual wield weapons. As a big fan of the franchise I’m full of questions regarding this release. Will it have all the maps from the World of Assassination trilogy? Will the game feature modes such as contracts, and elusive targets? Most importantly, how will dual-wielding help me stealthily complete my mission?

Hitman 3 VR: Reloaded will be coming this Summer to the Meta Quest 3 platform and you can pre-order the title at a 10% discount now on the Meta store.
