The Hitman series has always encouraged its players to replay missions, so it’s no surprise that one of the brand new features coming to Hitman 3 is the persistent shortcuts system. IO Interactive told us these in-game shortcuts can only be unlocked from one direction, but are designed to “encourage exploration, reward curiosity, and incentivize replayability.” Once a player has unlocked a persistent shortcut, they can access it in a future playthrough to open up new and convenient ways to access their targets. As you can see in our Hitman 3 gameplay above, this feature will allow you to approach locations from a new direction and shave those precious seconds off of your mission time.
Please note that this Hitman 3 gameplay was captured on PC by Game Informer.
