The World of Hitman 3 is Getting a Lot Bigger
You’d better hope you’re ready for Hitman 3 to grow. Make room – this expansion isn’t quite like any updates you’re familiar with. If you’ve ever tried purchasing the game as a new player, you might be familiar with this flowchart. It’s an infamous sight, detailing all the hoops you need to jump through to get all the content you want.
It’s about to get a lot easier.
“Let’s break it down.” says the official announcement page. “We’re streamlining the (many) offerings currently on the stores down to two products. These will replace existing ways to buy HITMAN 1, HITMAN 2 or HITMAN 3.”
“HITMAN – World of Assassination (approx. $70 USD or local equivalent) Includes: HITMAN 3, plus H1 GOTY Access Pass and H2 Standard Access Pass.”
“HITMAN – World of Assassination Deluxe Pack (approx. $30 USD or local equivalent) Includes: H3 Deluxe Pack, H3 Seven Deadly Sins Collection and H2 Expansion Access Pass.”
“That’s it. Those are the only two products that new players need to consider when buying any HITMAN game digitally as of January 26, 2023.”
And the value doesn’t end there. What happens if you already have a copy of the game? “HITMAN 3 will become ‘HITMAN World of Assassination’, which will also include access to HITMAN 1 and HITMAN 2 through our existing Access Pass system. Current HITMAN 3 owners will get a free upgrade to HITMAN World of Assassination on all platforms.”
Well well well, that’s pretty definitive, isn’t it? You can read up on the full announcement here.
If you already have the game, what’s the first thing you’ll be doing when the overhaul drops? If you’re not into the franchise yet, will this reduced barrier to entry make things easier for you to hop aboard? We’d love to hear from you in the comments down below!
