Hitman 3

Hitman 3 is now available on PC and consoles, and it seems like the Xbox Series X is the console that runs the game best.

Digital Foundry took a good look at the latest entry in the series developed IO Interactive, confirming that it runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox Series X. The PlayStation 5 doesn't manage to run the game at the same resolution, as Hitman 3 only runs at 1800p. The Xbox Series S only supports 1080p resolution.
