Playstation 5 – Hitman 3 Player Stuffs Every Sapienza NPC Into a Freezer
In a powerful display of stealth skills and patience, one Hitman 3 streamer has stuffed every single NPC in Sapienza into a single freezer.
A Twitch streamer playing Hitman 3 has completed the arduous task of knocking out every non-player character in the game’s Sapienza map and stuffing them all in a freezer. IO Interactive’s Hitman 3, which launched just last week, acts as the dramatic conclusion to the series developer’s World of Assassination trilogy. This trilogy of modern Hitman titles began in 2016 and has since blossomed into a true return to form for the classic stealth franchise.
IO Interactive’s Hitman series grants players the freedom to choose how they approach any given mission, with each level acting as an open sandbox to explore and conquer. This freedom of expression naturally leads to some impressive and unconventional feats from the more dedicated fans of the series. Speedrunning has become particularly popular among the series’ fanbase, and two Twitch speedrunners have recently tied by beating the first mission in Hitman 3 in only eight seconds. This truly impressive feat is performed through some perfectly-placed headshots, and serves to demonstrate the innovative moves that Hitman players can perform.
Twitch streamer RTGame Daniel recently posted a video to his Twitter, which shows him stuffing every non-player character in Hitman 3‘s Sapienza map into a single freezer. The Sapienza map, which can be imported to Hitman 3 from 2016’s Hitman, possesses more than 200 NPCs for the streamer to knock out and drag into the freezer. This bizarre but commendable accomplishment took more than six hours to achieve, and the entirety of the process was streamed on Twitch. RTGame Daniel’s tweet was even acknowledged by developer IO Interactive, with the studio expressing admiration at the concept and bewilderment at the execution.
As the newest title in a long-running series and the finale to a successful trilogy, Hitman 3 has experienced a successful week of sales. The game has topped sales charts in the United Kingdom, surpassing other hugely popular releases such as Mario Kart 8 and Animal Crossing: New Horizons which have topped the charts previously. While IO Interactive plans to give the Hitman franchise a break, instead moving on to work on a James Bond video game, it seems likely that the trilogy’s success will ensure more adventures for Agent 47 in the future.
The Hitman games, particularly the World of Assassination trilogy titles, give players various tools and then grant them the freedom to experiment through various levels. This player freedom is highly commendable, and sets Hitman apart from its peers. While few players are likely to stuff every single NPC into a freezer, the fact that it is possible to do so speaks volumes for IO’s commitment to player freedom of expression.
