Game News Hitman 3 and Trilogy: IO give you a better version of the game, after a failed launch on Steam

IO Interactive is going to give an upgrade to all owners of Hitman 3 and Hitman Trilogy on Steam, due to a rather unsuccessful launch.

IO Interactive announcement come back on the price of Hitman 3 on Steam, as well as that of Hitman Trilogy. Finally, the prices are not going to change, but what you get for those prices will change. Temporarily.

Shocking prices

The players were surprised and sometimes angry following the Hitman 3 and Hitman Trilogy releases on Steam. A year after the release of the third installment of the saga on the Epic Games Store, the title was released at the price of 59.99 euros for the standard edition, 89.99 euros for the Deluxe Edition, and 99.99 euros for Hitman Trilogy. Many believed that a game that is already a year old, Hitman 3, shouldn’t be that expensive. Especially since the game joined at the same time the Game Pass PC within the trilogy, which makes these prices all the more inconsistent a year after the release of Hitman 3. As for Hitman Trilogy, even though it was just released, the compilation contains Hitman 3 which is a year old, Hitman 2 which is four years old and Hitman who is six. A hundred euros for three dated titles, although excellent, it seems quite unreasonable. Finally, other fans were very unhappy with the state of the game in VR, riddled with bugs.

IO gives you the superior version

IO Interactive’s reaction to the anger of the players (a Reddit thread had notably been suspended for “targeted harassment) was not long in coming. posted on his blog, IO Interactive writes:

Our HITMAN 3 launch on Steam didn’t go as planned. We were excited to bring HITMAN 3 to Steam with new content and knew the levels of anticipation and excitement from our Steam players were high, especially since the game had been an Epic exclusive for a year.

In the end, we don’t have did not meet our own expectations when it comes to a launch experience, and we don’t like our Steam community starting their HITMAN 3 journey like this.

So here’s what we’re going to do: all the Steam users who have already purchased HITMAN 3, or anyone purchasing the game through February 19, 2022, will benefit from a free upgrade.

– All owners of HITMAN 3 Standard Edition will receive a free upgrade to HITMAN 3 Deluxe Edition.

– All owners of HITMAN 3 Deluxe Edition or HITMAN Trilogy will receive a free upgrade to the Seven Deadly Sins Collection.

From January 27, 2022, this process will begin to automatically deploy through Steam services. Just fire up your Steam copy of HITMAN 3 and your new free upgrade content will be waiting for you.

Specifically, upgrading to the Deluxe Edition will allow you to recover the pack Deluxe, containing the Escalation Deluxe Contracts, Deluxe costumes and items, digital in-game soundtrack, World of Hitman digital book, and in-game director’s commentary during the intro mission. The upgrade of Hitman Trilogy and the Deluxe Edition of Hitman 3 will add the pack de DLC Seven Deadly Sins Collection, which contains all seven expansions released last year for Hitman 3.

The upgrades of Hitman 3 and Hitman Trilogy are available on Steam for all owners of the games or those who purchase one before February 19.
