IO Interactive has altered tack on its earlier declaration about levels from Gunman 2 not being freely available in Hitman 3 for owners of both. An upgrade to the Gunman 3 Pre-Launch Guide notes that, “We are continuing to work on a service with our partners to enable PC gamers who own HITMAN 1 or HIT MAN 2 to import locations from those games into HITMAN 3 at no extra cost.”
It will release “in the coming weeks,” which I anticipate is enough to assuage all but the most die-hard of bad-tempered internet individuals.

” We know thats a great deal of information,” says IO, “but as soon as youve seen all of the Access Pass choices, and there are five in total, it will make more sense.”.
To be truthful, Im unsure that it will make more sense, however the reassurance is a great gesture.
This clarification is needed since, after stating in August that players would be able to import their development and unlocks freely, the pre-launch guide discussed that players would have to acquire a Hitman 2 access pack to access its material in the Epic-exclusive Hitman 3.
” Weve done everything possible to make this process smooth and player-friendly,” the studio composed at the time. “However, due to various circumstances out of our control, we wish to acknowledge that the process is various to our initial plans for PC players.”.
Epic Games manager Tim Sweeney later on stepped in to say that their team was dealing with a fix for the issue. A day later on, we see the upgrade from IO reported earlier in this story, as published by IO Interactive on Twitter.
