IO Interactive has announced that HITMAN 3 will soon become HITMAN World of Assassination and will include HITMAN 1 and 2 for free through their existing Access Pass system. Those who currently own HITMAN 3 will receive a free upgrade to World of Assassination on all platforms. A blog on IO Interactive’s website features full details of the change.
Today, IO Interactive revealed new details about how players (both existing and new) will experience, access and purchase HITMAN 1, HITMAN 2 and HITMAN 3.
As of January 26, 2023, the changes below are planned to come into effect.
HITMAN 3 will become ‘HITMAN World of Assassination’, which will also include access to HITMAN 1 and HITMAN 2 through the existing Access Pass system. Current HITMAN 3 owners will get a free upgrade to HITMAN World of Assassination on all platforms.
IO Interactive is drastically simplifying the purchase experience for new players. HITMAN World of Assassination will be the single available option to start playing.
