At the time of Hitman 3’s launch, PC players were stung when it came to being able to import content from the previous two Hitman titles. Hitman and Hitman 2 were available on Steam while Hitman 3 is an Epic Games Store exclusive. This meant Hitman 3 owners could not access the legacy content due the two stores not talking to each other. IO Interactive promised a fix and now it is live. The studio has released a 3 step guide, and you will need to sign into an IO account.
The three-step process for importing locations into HITMAN 3 on PC:
1. Read the instructions
2. Review your accounts
3. Claim content / import locations
A few important things before getting started.
Double check all your choices before claiming content. They cannot be undone or reversed. The content you claim will be an ‘Access Pass DLC’. For example, if you own HITMAN 2, you can claim the HITMAN 2 Access Pass. It’s that simple.
Once you have claimed an Access Pass, restart HITMAN 3 to access the relevant content. (There are no codes you need to redeem.)
We recommend using a PC browser, the location importing site is not fully optimised for mobile browsers. After signing into your IOI Account, you’ll need to link both your platform account that owns HITMAN 2 and the platform account where you own HITMAN 3 to your IOI Account. From there, you’ll be able to view the status of what you own and import your locations.
On PlayStation and Xbox, the process is clearer. Any content you have from Hitman 2 is possible to be imported, with Hitman 1 having to first be redeemed for Hitman 2 (even if it’s just the free Starter Pack) before it can make the jump to Hitman 3.
