Hitman III developer IO Interactive recently announced that the PlayStation versions of the game will get a PSVR mode, letting you play through each location in first-person virtual reality. While there’s been some question of how the game would translate to VR, since so much of the game’s stealth involves costume changes and situational awareness, IO Interactive has released a single, short GIF that really sells the concept.

You can see the GIF in the tweet below. It shows 47 tapping a man on the shoulder with a crowbar before whacking him in the face with it as he turns around. It’s a perfect encapsulation of Hitman’s extremely dark sense of humor, albeit a bit more slapstick than usual–as is befitting of VR.

This seems to be taken from the Sapienza level from the first season of Hitman, at the inside front gate to the De Santis estate.

The Twitter account has shared a few other GIFs from the game’s new VR mode since it was announced, showing 47 relaxing and firing blind around corners.

A new location from the third game, the Thornbridge Manor, was recently shown off. IO Interactive has also detailed how Elusive Targets, Escalation missions, and Contract modes will be overhauled in the future.

Hitman III releases for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC on January 21, 2021. The VR mode will launch exclusively for PSVR users.
