IO Interactive has shared Hitman 3 update 1.01 details and confirmed the file size of the game in a new blog post that also revealed info on the PC version.
The game has a day one patch that will be required in order to get the best possible experience out of the game. The size of this update is between 10 to 16 GB depending on your platform.
Here are the details on the Hitman 3 pre-load, day one patch, and game size that was shared by IO Interactive.
It will be possible to pre-load HITMAN 3 on PlayStation and Xbox platforms. Make sure that you’ve configured your console to do that and the downloads will begin when they have been prepared and certified. On PC, there won’t be a pre-load option for HITMAN 3 and downloads will begin at the above release time.
(For PS4 and PS5 owners in Asia, please note that HITMAN 3 will not be available for pre-order or pre-load. This is due to recent changes in the age ratings systems in those regions. HITMAN 3 will be available for purchase at the above time.)
Day One Patch
HITMAN 3 will require a day one patch for all disc users. The day one patch will be automatically applied to digital players. This patch will include access to the VR mode for PlayStation users and will include the remaining locations that are not included on the disc.
HITMAN 3 will take up approximately 60-70 GB of storage space on all platforms, with the obvious exceptions of Stadia and Switch. The data that you download will also include all the content required to access HITMAN 1 and HITMAN 2 – but you are still required to own/purchase access to those games. To underline that; purchasing HITMAN 3 does not grant access to the previous two games by default.
The game will be available on January 20, 2021, for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC. It is also releasing on Nintendo Switch through Cloud.
