HITMAN 3 is the third game in the World of Assassination trilogy. Recent Hitman games have taken stealth gameplay to the next level, and this global adventure sees Agent 47 return once again to assassinate more targets than ever before.
Coupled with great graphics and open-world gameplay within each mission, you really can become the perfect professional killer if you want. But the game also has its moments of hilarity and dark humor, making it as fun as it is brutal.

Deathloop takes the combat formula and feel of the Dishonored series and adds one of the most memorable gameplay mechanics used in recent memory. In Deathloop, you are tasked with murdering a group of people simultaneously on the same day, while stuck in an infinite loop.
"Groundhog Day with the Assassins" is a good description of the game but doesn't cover all the bases. With sleek combat, gripping progression, and satisfying kill mechanics, you can't go wrong with this game that's essentially one big puzzle to solve.
