Hitman 3 PC players will be able to import their Hitman 2 locations by “end of February”

Despite its strong critical reception, Hitman 3’s PC launch has been somewhat marred by complications preventing players from unlocking Hitman 2 levels in the game without needing to re-purchase them first. Developer IO has now offered an update on the problem, however, confirming it’s eagerly awaited solution will be in place by the end of February.

The problem, if you’re unfamiliar, arose from Hitman 3’s new access pass system, enabling players to unlock locations from earlier games in the trilogy. Newcomers will need to pay to access those levels, but those that already own Hitman 1 or 2 can access them on the same system at no additional cost. In theory at least.

While that’s certainly the case on PlayStation and Xbox, PC players have faced a snag resulting from Hitman 3’s Epic Store exclusivity. Given that Hitman 2 is only available on Steam, there’s currently no direct means for Hitman 3 to recognise when players have already purchased its predecessor – prompting fears they’d need to fork out again to access Hitman 2’s levels.
