IO Interactive assures that players will not have to buy back these older games, and that the import feature will be available in the “coming weeks.”
Hitman 3 – All Locations In-Game
At the time of writing, only Hitman and Hitman 3 are available for purchase / pre-purchase on the Epic Games Store, and there is currently no way to show that you purchased Hitman 2 from another store.
As described in Hitman 3’s pre-launch guide, players will be able to transfer their progression from Hitman 2 by launching through a web browser. Although the process is not detailed yet, it will require an IOI account.
For those who do not own an earlier version of Hitman and want to play previous levels in Hitman 3, Access Passes for both Hitman and Hitman 2 will be available for purchase. Furthermore, there will be an 80% discount on Access Passes on the Epic Games Store for the first 14 days after launch.Fortunately, console gamers do not have to worry about any of this and will be able to take advantage of previous levels if they own Hitman and / or Hitman 2 upon release.
