IO Interactive offers free Hitman 3 upgrades after rough Steam launch

Buyers of Hitman 3 on Steam can reap some new benefits following backlash from players.

After a year of Epic Games Store exclusivity, Hitman 3 was released on Steam. However, that launch didn’t quite go the way fans were hoping. In addition to server issues, players were frustrated at the fact that Hitman 3 and its DLC were all fully priced, despite being discounted on the Epic Games Store and being a year old at this point. Developer IO Interactive has now responded to that backlash, saying that Steam players will be granted free upgrades to the game’s Deluxe Edition and DLC.

IO Interactive made the announcement to players with a Tweet and blog post to their support page.

Players that qualify for a free upgrade won’t have to do much in order to claim the new bonuses. Simply launch Hitman 3 on the Epic Games Store and the new content should be available to you. If you bought the Hitman 3 Standard Edition, you’ll be upgraded to the game’s Deluxe Edition. If you purchased the Hitman 3 Deluxe Edition or the Hitman Trilogy, you’ll be upgraded to the Seven Deadly Sins DLC.

The free Hitman 3 upgrades and DLC are available to everyone who buys the game on Steam through February 19, 2022. For future updates on Hitman 3, stick with Shacknews.
