Hitman: Absolution Will Have Stereoscopic 3D Support

September 14th, 2012 · 4 Comments · Stereo 3D Games


The upcoming game Hitman: Absolution will come with stereoscopic 3D support for PC and some extra features such as various DX11 extras. For now we know that the game should come with support for AMD HD3D technology as well as multi-monitor Eyefinity support for sure (this has already been announced), but the developer is apparently also planning to have support for Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology, though it is not clear if it will be available at launch or will be added via an update at a later time. No word on stereoscopic 3D support for consoles, but since the game will have support for HD3D it means that it should have a native stereo 3D rendering built into the game itself (at least on PC), so just adding the proper output for 3D Vision should not be that hard. It cat be completely different story if there are some marketing agreements, as due to such the game developer’s priorities can be completely different than to make all stereoscopic 3D gamers happy. Hitman: Absolution should be released on November 20th, so there is some time left for some extra work regarding stereoscopic 3D support.

The game Hitman: Absolution is available for pre-order for the most impatient fans…

    Well based on the Square-enix/eidos trend..
    Deus-ex/sleeping dogs/ hitman
    All are DX11/ All support AMDHD3D
    I am pretty hopeful it will support 3d vision as above have. Hopefully its not a dud like deus ex though… If it all works out, we might see the same with tomb raider = )

    Hell ya. After I read this I went and pre-ordered this game discounted at GMG. DX11, 3d Vision, & surround, music to my ears!

    This seems the trend lately that many AAA titles are getting good 3d support. I hope this trend keeps up. 3rd person view games work much better than 1st person 3d surround IMO.

    It doesn’t support native quad buffered 3D on nVidia. Even if you enable the Stereoscopic option in-game, it simply turns on the 3D Vision driver conversion. Thus it is full of rendering errors unlike HD3D.
