Studio IOI released another trailer dedicated to innovations in Hitman 3. The video, which is almost ten minutes long, details what the upcoming Freelancer mode is all about and explains what players need to do and what they can get for participating.
Freelancer mode, in which we will be able to acquire our own customizable shelter and choose contracts, acting without the support of the base. It is inspired by roguelike systems, and players will only have to rely on the tools and supplies that are on hand in the hideout, or those provided by merchants on a mission.
Freelancer is scheduled to release on January 26, 2023. In the meantime, players are invited to take part in the closed technical testing of the update. It is intended to test the stability of servers, but players will be able to appreciate a number of innovations.
During the test, only nine locations from World of Assassination will be open, and in the release version, 19 territories are waiting for us. Players will be able to visit Paris, Sapienza, Hokkaido, Miami, Mumbai, Whittleton Creek, Dartmoor, Berlin and Mendoza. And it will be possible to earn only 25 skill levels out of a hundred in the hodge tests.
Technical testing will be held from 3 to 7 November. The progress made will not be carried over to the release version.
