On January 20th, 2021 – this Wednesday – the stealth action game Hitman 3 will be released for the PC and consoles. An interesting feature is the ability to play locations or levels from Hitman 2 in Agent 47’s latest adventure. For this purpose, an “Access Pass” is used on the consoles, which owners of the predecessor can download for free. But with the PC version, a very specific problem is currently causing headaches.
Hitman 3 (buy now € 59.99) appears for the PC namely (time) exclusively for the Epic Games Store. Hitman 2 is not available there, so that it is not possible to use an “Access Pass” as with the consoles. Some fans had therefore already expressed the fear that they would have to do without this feature. But the responsible developer studio IO Interactive is already working on a solution together with Epic Games. Epic CEO Tim Sweeney recently stated on Twitter:
“We’re sorry, the team is looking into this with IO. It is never Epic’s intention to create a situation where someone who already owns a game on Steam will buy it again from the Epic Games Store must in order to be able to enjoy it to the full. “
Sweeney has not revealed exactly how this solution will look and when it can be expected. However, the feature seems to be secured for the PC version of Hitman 3 as well – at no additional cost for the players.
