- "Travel to the historic Thornbridge Manor in Dartmoor for a mission with a murder mystery twist. Choose your own path to your objectives or take on the role of detective to solve a murder and eliminate your target. Two birds, one disguise."
Dartmoor is a region in the southern county of Devon, England, and is home to the second mission in HITMAN™ III, Death in the Family, as well as the Dartmoor Garden Show permanent event. Dartmoor is an upland area in southern Devon, England. The moorland and surrounding land has been protected by National Park status since 1951. Dartmoor National Park covers 954 km2 (368 sq. mi).
The granite which forms the uplands dates from the Carboniferous Period of geological history. The landscape consists of moorland capped with many exposed granite hilltops known as tors, providing habitats for Dartmoor wildlife. The highest point is High Willhays, 621 m (2,037 ft) above sea level. The entire area is rich in antiquities and archaeology.
Dartmoor National Park is managed by the Dartmoor National Park Authority, whose 22 members are drawn from Devon County Council, local district councils and Government. Parts of Dartmoor have been used as military firing ranges for over 200 years. The public is granted extensive land access rights on Dartmoor (including restricted access to the firing ranges) and it is a popular tourist destination. Dartmoor is also known for its myths and legends.
The mission area encompasses Thornbridge Manor and its grounds. The large, sprawling mansion sits next to a river, which, along with its feeder streams, defines the boundaries of the property. Notable features on the ground include a hedge garden, a greenhouse, and a graveyard adjacent to a ruined stone church. One vehicle road leads to the mansion, but the streams that feed into the river can be crossed at a few shallow points. Somewhat unusually compared to other maps, there is no basement or other underground portion.
- Dartmoor was the second HITMAN™ III location to be shown to the public in in-game footage and was revealed alongside The Thornbridge Mystery trailer.
- Dartmoor missions, contracts, elusive targets, and one of the escalations are unavailable for at least some digital versions on the Xbox platforms.
