Players could integrate all of the levels from Hitman 1 and 2 into Hitman 3, making it into one massive game. This was made possible by the developer IO Interactive, who did an outstanding job of not leaving any content out throughout their most recent Hitman trilogy.
It wasn’t always apparent to people new to the franchise which version of the game and add-ons they needed to acquire to receive the complete trilogy of homicidal awesomeness. This was especially the case for individuals interested in playing the game. To our great relief, IO Interactive is making a considerable effort to simplify things.
Hitman 3 will now be known as Hitman World of Assassination, and it will be sold as part of a bundle called Hitman World of Assassination for a price of $70. This bundle will contain the ordinary copies of Hitman 3 and Hitman 2, as well as the GOTY edition of Hitman 1.
As a result of Hitman 1 and 2 no longer being available for individual purchase, this will be the only method to purchase the whole trilogy in the future. Everyone who owns Hitman 3 will receive a free upgrade that grants them access to all of the material from Hitman 1 and 2, respectively.
IO Interactive will also be selling, for the price of $30, the Hitman World of Assassination Deluxe Pack. This pack contains all the downloadable content released for Hitman 2 and 3. The formerly bewildering variety of available purchasing choices has been narrowed to only two.
You definitely owe it to yourself to look at Hitman World of Assassination if you haven’t tried it, even if you haven’t tried it out yet. Even if Hitman 1 and 2 aren’t nearly as polished as Hitman 3, they are nevertheless valuable contributions to the total package. I reviewed Hitman 3 with a 9 out of 10, and I said it is a fantastic sandbox stealth game.
On January 26, Hitman 3 will be rebranded as Hitman World of Assassination. This is also the day when IO Interactive releases the “Freelancer” mode for their roguelike video game, which has been developing for quite some time (learn more about that here). What do you think, those of you who are on the fence? Are you committing to finishing the most recent chapter of Agent 47’s story?
