Is Hitman 3 an Open World Game?

Hitman 3 brings out some of the most challenging missions to assassinate key targets in a restricted zone. Does this mean this game is the open world?

Hitman 3 focuses on stealth assassination where gamers have to take down key targets without getting caught. It is challenging and offers different ways of carrying out the mission objective. Hitman 3 is the most recent installment in the Hitman game series out for almost every major console platform and PC. In this guide, we will discuss whether Hitman 3 is an Open World Game? If yes then what are the side-activities you can do while not engaged in main missions.

Is Hitman 3 an Open World Game?

Hitman 3 is divided into 6 missions where Agent 47 travels to different locations to take down key targets. The game features 6 New Locations, each with a high-level target. The goal is to assassinate the target without getting caught. Below you can read the list of new locations in Hitman 3.

  • Dubai
  • Dartmoor
  • Berlin
  • Chongqing
  • Mendoza
  • Carpathian Mountains, Romania

Hitman 3 does not offer open-world gameplay, it more like providing players complete access to the location which is directly linked to the six main missions. Below is the list of all Missions in Hitman 3, which begins in Dubai. Agent 47 crashes the inauguration of Burj Al-Ghazali, Dubai’s tallest building to kill three partners Alexa Carlisle, Carl Ingram, and Marcus Stuyvesant. All mission revolves around these three key targets.

  • Mission 1: On Top of the World
  • Mission 2: Death in the Family
  • Mission 3: Apex Predator
  • Mission 4: End of an Era
  • Mission 5: The Farewell
  • Mission 6: Untouchable

Hitman 3 does not restrict you from exploring the surrounding, but once you are done with the mission you travel to a new area. The goals are straight-forward, finding the right keys, or disguising as the right person to reach nearest to the target. So to an extent, Hitman 3 has elements of the open-world but it is not purely an open-world game. I will consider it as a story-based game where you play the role of Agent 47, a secret agent who is on a mission to take some of the key targets in the world.
