Installation and Usage

Here's how to get up and running with Peacock.

  • Steps 2-3 may need to be repeated whenever Peacock receives an update (more info on the Updating page).
  • Steps 4-5 need to be repeated every time you launch the game. The game defaults back to the official servers otherwise.
  1. Be sure to check the requirements before reading further to ensure you have the required games / operating systems. Xbox Game Pass / Microsoft PC version of Hitman 3 is not supported, and Linux users should check this page.

  2. Download the latest Peacock release here. Select Peacock-vX.Y.Z.zip to download.

    • Note: There is also a Peacock-vX.Y.Z-lite.zip option, but this is mainly for Linux users. The lite version does not include Node, which Linux users have to download separate binaries for anyways. If in doubt / not on Linux, download the non-lite version.
    • Refer to Step 1 for general Linux instructions.
  3. Extract (unzip) files. Running the files from within the zipped folder will not work.

  4. Navigate to where you installed Peacock, and run the files Start Server.cmd and PeacockPatcher.exe.

  5. Now start up the game while Start Server and PeacockPatcher.exe are still running. The game should launch with Peacock server. Check the FAQ or ask in the #help channel on Peacock Discord if you have trouble getting it to work.
