IO Interactive is providing Hitman 3 player an olive branch after its release on Steam “did not go as planned.”
It seems new Hitman 3 owners and potential customers were a bit confused about how the game was launched on the service.
The problem players have with the game is the different purchase options available for Hitman games. One of the biggest problems potential customers have is the fact Hitman 3 is priced at $60 for a game that doesn’t have anything but basic content.
To appease potential buyers and customers, IO Interactive is offering additional paid content at no cost.
“We’re excited to bring Hitman 3 to Steam with new content, and we know that the level of anticipation and excitement among our Steam players is high, especially since the game is already a Steam exclusive. Epic for a year,” studio said.
“Ultimately, we fell short of our own expectations for the launch experience, and we don’t like that our Steam community is starting their Hitman 3 journey this way.”
To make up for everything, everyone on Steam who purchased Hitman 3 or purchased the game through February 19 will get a free upgrade to Hitman 3 Deluxe Edition.
All Hitman 3 Deluxe Edition or Hitman Trilogy owners will receive a free upgrade to the Seven Deadly Sins Collection.
This process is currently rolling out automatically through Steam permissions. To make sure you’ve received your upgrade, launch your Steam copy of Hitman 3 and new content from the free upgrade will be waiting for you.
Hitman 3 has entered its second yearand one of the updates you can expect from it is roguelike mode Freelancer which introduces strategic planning and a customizable safehouse. This mode is slated for this spring. Along with Freelancer mode, players will have a new map to traverse. It’s called Rocky, and IO promises more information about it will be revealed later this year.
On January 20th, a new game mode called Elusive Target Arcade was made available. Here, the Elusive Target concept has been mixed up a bit and contains new challenges and unlockable rewards.
