What you need to know

  • Hitman 3 PC players will now be able to import Hitman 1 and Hitman 2
  • Hitman 3 launched on Jan. 20, 2021.
  • Hitman 3 is a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store.

Hitman 3 is filled to the brim with a variety of vistas and targets for the player to experience. Through its legacy content packs, you can access Hitman 1, and Hitman 2 and play them in the upgraded Hitman 3 engine. However, due to complications at launch, many PC players were unable to import these legacy packs into Hitman 3. Today, the game's developer IO Interactive announced it had found a fix for the issue.

PC players who own Hitman 1 and Hitman 2, will now be able to import the game's locations to Hitman 3. This also includes Steam players who were attempting to import their Hitman progress via the Epic Games Store. While the game is currently not available on Steam, you won't have to lose your progress.

It is a very simple process to import your content, with no download codes required. Just use simple "Access Pass DLC" and select the games you own. You will then be able to breeze through and import all previous locations into Hitman 3.

With this update, this means that all of the Hitman trilogy will be able to be played under one game. This is an incredible job by IO Interactive, which has been very vocal in wanting to fix these compatibility issues.
