Hitman 3 was changed to Hitman – World Of Assassination at the start of the year, including content from previous Hitman games. Today the first-ever patch notes for Hitman – World Of Assassination have been announced along with a new single-player mode, Hitman Freelancer.
This new version, 3.140, will release tonight and can be updated on all platforms PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Switch. According to IO Interactive, the patch size will vary from 1.5 GB to 8 GB, depending on your platform. Only Switch users will get the game pre-updated after the maintenance is finished. Without further ado, let’s update you with all the new content the game will offer.
Hitman Freelancer is a new single-player game mode set sometime after Hitman 3 epilogue. Agent 47 becomes a free agent, which means you are in control. Create and Customize strategies, travel around different countries, identify and eliminate dangerous villains. Learn more about Hitman Freelancer here.

Improvement and Changes
