Gamers around the world have not only been anticipating the release of the Playstation 5 but also the games releasing with it.

After delaying their original PS5 event, Sony held it on Thursday, June 11 and during the hour-long showcase, unveiled the titles fans should expect.

One of the more exciting announcements was that Hitman 3 would be releasing in January 2021. Part of the popular Hitman franchise, the game's trailer showed part of a mission being played out in Dubai and includes sneaking around a luxurious hotel and stealthy climbing up a skyscraper.

Watch the preview here of the Dubai level here:

The Hitman series debuted in November 2000. They revolve around Agent 47, a cloned contract assassin, whose flawless record places him in high demand among the wealthy and elite, as he kills numerous high-profile criminals across the globe. The company's most recent game, Hitman 2, came out in November 2018.

During the PS5 event, Sony also revealed what the gaming console would look like.

The Playstation 5, pictured standing vertically, will have a black core surrounded by a white edge. However, like the Xbox Series X, it can also be placed horizontally. There will be two versions of the PS5: one with a 4K Blu-ray drive and a pure Digital Edition, which is substantially thinner.

Sony did not mention the prices but the Digital Edition will likely be cheaper because it does not have the drive.

The PS5 promises advanced graphics and shorter load times through the use of its solid-state hard drive, which along with the device's games pipeline are key selling points as contenders like Google push into gaming.

"You've seen games that can only be enjoyed with the full range of PlayStation 5's features and power," Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan said during the presentation.
