IO Interactive is considering leasing Hitman 3 Players using locations from previous games may not have gone as planned, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to redeem those first two titles. The developer has promised that PC gamers who own Hitman or Hitman 2 won’t have to buy these games another time just to access their earlier material in the new Assassin title. It describes in a guide that he “continued to work on a solution” that would allow importing locations for free, but did not specify when he would be ready beyond some time in the “weeks to come”.
There is a solution in the meantime. IO said that would do Hitman 1 GOTY Access Pass (to transfer content to the new game) available free of charge for all PC customers who pre-order Hitman 3 on the Epic Games Store or buy it within the first 10 days. Anyone who owns the original Hitman on EGS will also receive a free GOTY Access Pass with the purchase of the third game. You won’t be so lucky with Hitman 2, but Standard and Gold access passes will be available at 80% off for two weeks after Hitman 3launch.
