Introduction

Hitman Graphics Performance Tweak Guide 45 | TweakTown.com

If the Hitman series were a person, it would now be old enough to drive. The latest entry is named simply "Hitman", and is the first in an episodic series. Developed by IO Interactive, as usual, it returns to its open-ended gameplay roots with sprawling, sandbox-style maps and quick saving, encouraging experimentation.

The Glacier engine is again employed here, with support for DirectX 12 and 4K. Visuals are strong, and performance is good, but a little tinkering never hurts, especially if you're on low-end or mid-range hardware. In this guide, I'll take a look at both to help you achieve a nice balance of both.
