Hitman 3's getting Ray Tracing, FSR, and DLSS next week

Hitman 3's getting support for ray tracing, and all locations from Hitman 1 and 2 will also benefit

With patch 3.110, Hitman 3's PC version will receive support for ray tracing, DLSS, and FSR 1.0, giving PC gamers access to advanced upscaling technologies and additional graphical features. This update is due to arrive on May 24th, and these new technologies can be used within all locations in Hitman 3, even levels from Hitman 1 and Hitman 2. 

One of Hitman 3's killer features is its ability to allow Hitman 1/2's content to be replayed within Hitman 3's engine. This already delivered visual enhancements for these older levels, as well as access to additional content and gameplay options. Next week, ray tracing and advanced upscaling will be available within these levels, giving them even better visuals on PC. 

Ray Tracing will be available in Hitman 3 in the form of ray traced reflections and shadows, with ray traced reflections having various quality options to choose from. Lower quality reflection settings will result in lower quality reflections, with fewer details and some occasional pop-in for objects.

This summer, Hitman 3 is due to gain support for Intel's XeSS upscaling technology, in addition to the game's support for FSR 1.0 and DLSS on May 24th. At this time, IO Interactive has not revealed whether or not they plan to support AMD's FSR 2.0 technology.
