Hands up, who likes a murder mystery? IO Interactive has today revealed a new location coming to Hitman 3 in the form of the English moorland of Dartmoor and the Thornbridge Manor.

The trailer you see above focuses on just one of the Mission Stories available to you in the new location, where you'll be able to take on the role of detective and piece the mystery together.

Here's what Hitman 3's Lead Writer has to say about it:

HITMAN missions are very complicated affairs with plenty of moving parts and lots of characters you are able to interact with in a huge variety of ways. In Dartmoor’s murder mystery, we are dialing all of that up to 11.

Every member of the family is a possible suspect and it’s been quite the challenge to make sure everything doesn’t fall apart just because the player wants to play around. In fact, that sort of behaviour should be rewarded in a HITMAN game, so we have been working hard on making sure that depending on what a player discovers during their investigation, outcomes might differ. It’s going to be great fun to see how everyone tackles this particular problem next year.”

Hitman 3 is officially coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X in January 2021, and pre-orders are reportedly scheduled to go live later this month.
