Hitman 3 is the conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy and we’re very happy to allow players to carryover locations and progression from Hitman 2 into Hitman 3. We’re very proud to have the entire trilogy all playable from within Hitman 3 and to make it the ultimate place to play any game from the trilogy.

IOI confirms 12 months of EGS exclusivity and ability to import data from Steam

Quote

As an independent studio, our partnership with Epic has given us the freedom to create HITMAN 3 exactly as we imagined and self-publish the game to our players directly. It’s also important to us that we honour the time our existing PC players have spent in our previous games.

 

With that in mind, we are pleased to confirm that PC players will be able to carryover their current progression and unlocks from HITMAN 2 on Steam into HITMAN 3 on Epic Games Store. It will also be possible for PC players to import locations from the previous two games into HITMAN 3 on Epic Games Store. We want to make it a seamless process for our PC players to enjoy HITMAN 3 on a different PC platform and continue to enjoy the benefits of our World of Assassination.

If anyone knows how to get into the mind of a killer, it's this guy.

Hitman 3's excellent Dartmoor level can see Agent 47 solving a locked room murder, on the way to doing his own murder, and it's a lot of fun.

The fact that Hitman 3 is as good as it is - and that it exists at all - feels like something of a miracle.

IO Interactive is happy to embrace the zaniness in Hitman, but only when it makes sense.The Hitman series has recently became known for its ridiculous, over-the-top deaths and sometimes zany assassination tools. With Hitman 3, IO Interactive wants to tell a darker story, without abandoning all the jokes and goofing around.Speaking to VG247, communication manager […]

Hitman 3, which releases January 20, is the last in the trilogy of Hitman reboots that started in 2016. What I played of it in a preview this week felt as tense and exciting as ever, with a glamorous new location to infiltrate and powerful figures to track down. While there are a few new additions, what I played feels like new, prettier Hitman, which is exactly what I’ve been hoping for. It also explores issues that hit uncomfortably close to home this week.

Hitman 3 is out soon, and that is something worth getting excited about because it's an excellent game so far.

If this is the end for Agent 47, he’s going out in style.

Opinion: perfectly executed

Hitman 3's English manor level will focus around a murder mystery, tasking Agent 47 with solving the case and catching the killer.

The first two levels of Hitman 3 are more of what the series has done very well, with even more creative intrigue.

Never played these before but this looks fantastic. Is the story of the first two important? Should I go back and play either of them or just youtube it?

Yes. You should definitely play the first two... the stories are very interconnected and the games are awesome. They're not very long either.

I should really get into these games. I've loved watching various Giantbomb videos of them over the years, and it seems like they've been quietly killing it with the series.

If I get the PS5 version, will I still be able to play the VR missions? I noticed that PSVR is mentioned on the PS4 box art, but not the PS5 box art. :confused: 

Yep, if you play the ps4 version with the neq switch

And the first two come free with this.

 

They are incredible, but they take patience. I guess the new story mode alleviates that for those thatt want a more llinear progression.

Are they free with this game or just playable through it with some sort of registration mechanism like with the Halo collection? 

 

Either way I got the first one for free a while back so I can start on that when I'm feeling it.

They're just playable through Hitman 3 when you link your IO Interactive account.

There is no PS5 VR version so you'll be playing the PS4 version.

I had to stare at this for like 3 minutes because I was sure you said there was no PS5 version period.
