IO Interactive has confirmed that it is dishing out free digital versions of Hitman 3 on PS4 for those who purchase the game on PS5, all so you can enjoy the game’s PSVR features. And the best bit? You can buy it on Sony’s new console either digitally or physically – you’ll still secure the PS4 edition free.
Hitman 3 is fully compatible with Sony’s virtual reality headset, but you’ll need the PS4 version to enjoy it. The PS5 allows you to use PSVR for PS4 games, but actual PS5 titles won’t support the peripheral – Sony’s likely saving that for PSVR 2.
You can either play Hitman 3 in PS VR natively on your PS4 or via backward compatibility on PS5. To make sure all PS VR owners can experience the game in VR, we’re including a free digital copy of the PS4 version of Hitman 3 with all PS5 copies, whether you choose to buy it via disc or digital.
Hitman 3 is due for release on January 20, 2021 for PS5, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One. The game will make full use of the DualSense controller, which you can read up on here.
The game will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
