Hitman 3 is arguably the most anticipated game of the month alongside the Microsoft exclusive The Medium. There’s recently been some good news in the developer promising a fix so that owners of 2 on Steam can get its levels for free on the Epic Games store, and another bit of good news is that those on PlayStation and Xbox can now preload it. Here  you’ll find IO Interactive’s shared file size for Hitman 3, and you’ll also discover how to preload the game.

The third instalment begins in Dubai and Dartmoor which are said to be terrific starts, and these are just two wildly different locations for Agent 47 on his third globe-trotting escapade. Dubai is a disgustingly rich location whereas Dartmoor turns into a murder mystery parody, but there’ll be other locations to visit on holiday as you take a break from the dreariness of reality to brutally kill people in stunning landscapes.

Whether this is your third or first time stepping into the shoes of Agent 47, below you’ll discover the game’s file size and how to preload Hitman 3.

What is the Hitman 3 file size?

The file size for Hitman 3 is approximately 60-70 GB.

This file size for Hitman 3 comes courtesy of IO Interactive, but there will be a day one patch which will automatically be applied to digital copies of the game.

In addition, the data you download will also include all of the content required to play IO Interactive’s first and second instalments.

Know that you need to own Hitman 1 and 2 in order to play via the third game. Reviews are yet to be published, but you will need to pre-order if you want to preload.

How to preload Hitman 3

You can preload Hitman 3 on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

However, you cannot preload Hitman 3 on PC via the Epic Games store which has disappointed many of the community.

In regard to which edition you should pre-order, there is a Standard (£54.99) and Deluxe Edition (£74.99) available (prices via PSN store).

Prematurely buying the game will give you the Trinity Pack for both editions as well as allow you to preload, and the Deluxe Edition comes with the following bonuses:

  • Deluxe suits and items
  • Digital soundtracks
  • Digital ‘World of Hitman’ book
  • Director commentary
  • Deluxe Escalation contracts

Hitman 3 comes out on January 20th.
