IO Interactive’s plans to leave Hitman 3 Players using previous games may not have posted as planned, but that does not mean you have to buy the first two titles again. The developer has promised that PC players as owners Assassin or Hitman 2 do not have to buy these games another time just to access their previous material in the new assassin title. It outlined in a guide that it “continued to work on a solution” that allowed the import of locations for free, but did not say when it would be clear beyond once in the “coming weeks.”
There is a solution in the meantime. IO said it would Hitman 1 GOTY Access Pass (to transfer content to the new game) available for free to all PC customers who either pre-order Hitman 3 at the Epic Games Store or purchase it within the first 10 days. Everyone who owns the original Assassin at EGS get a free GOTY Access Pass when they buy the third game as well. You will not be so lucky with Hitman 2, but both Standard and Gold Access Passes will be available with an 80 percent discount for two weeks after Hitman 3launch.
