The news here isn’t that IO Interactive—which has historically been reticent in doling out a bevy of publicity screenshots for its hit stealth game, Hitman 3 —published a decadent 4K screenshot of suave hero Agent 47 pouring a glass of Argentinian Malbec.No, no, that’s just icing on the cake: IO Interactive is handing out free upgrades to those who purchased Hitman 3 on Steam.
Advertisement Hitman 3 , first released on console and PC last January, launched on PC as a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store.Earlier this month, after the exclusivity agreement lapsed, IO Interactive listed Hitman 3 on Steam.But the rollout wasn’t exactly received well.
As noted by PC Gamer , fans didn’t have much to lament about typical matters of blowback, like abundant microtransactions or a game’s inherent quality.(Truthfully, how many bad words could you have for a game about train fights , throwable bananas , and a grape press that’s systematically used to crush the modern gentry?) Rather, players were irked that Hitman 3 was listed with a bog-standard $60 price tag a full year after its $60 release on other platforms.
Starting today, players who purchased the standard edition of Hitman 3 on Steam will get an upgrade to Hitman 3 ’s deluxe edition, which grants access to bonuses, including digital OSTs, developer commentary, and some snazzy in-game suits.Meanwhile, anyone who purchased the just-released Hitman Trilogy —a $100 bundle that packages Hitman 3 alongside access passes for levels from the first two games in the “world of assassination” trilogy—will get the entire suite of DLC themed after the seven deadly sins .
These changes will automatically be reflected in your account via Steam entitlements, IO Interactive said in a blog post .Anyone who buys Hitman 3 through February 19 will also receive them.
