Hitman 3 ESRB Rating Details Weapons, Methods of Killing and Disposing Bodies
Hitman 3 will be out on January 20, 2021. ESRB has given a rating for the game detailing its various weapons and killing methods.
Hitman is a stealth-focused game that offers the players an open sandbox to approach their mission objectives. They can use various tools of the trade to perform a set of Assassinations in the game.
In the ESRB rating for Hitman 3, there are descriptions of some of the killing methods including a woodchipper for disposing bodies.
This is a stealth action game in which players assume the role of an assassin (Agent 47) tasked with eliminating targets through a variety of missions. From a third-person perspective, players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and melee weapons to kill targets. Players can eliminate victims using stealth (e.g., stabbing/strangling), and other covert methods (e.g., poisoned drinks, disguises, sabotaged devices). Environmental objects such as woodchippers and compactors can be used to dispose of bodies, resulting in large blood-splatter effects. Blood effects occur frequently during combat, and pooling appears under corpses. Players have the ability to kill civilians, though these actions may negatively affect players’ progress. Some missions involve infiltrating a drug operation and luring victims by trying to sell them drugs; players can acquire a brick of cocaine but are not able to use it. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
The game also offers a free upgrade to the next-generation console version so if anyone buys the PS4 or Xbox One version, they can get an upgrade to the next-generation consoles for free.
Hitman 3 will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC and release on January 20, 2021. It is being developed by IO Interactive and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive.
