Good news for Hitman fans: Hitman 1, 2, and 3 will become Hitman World of Assassination, a single Hitman that will be superior to them all. There will continue to be several versions, DLC packs, and other well-known stuff from the Hitman ‘verse.

Below, we’ve come up with a sleek guide on much everything you need to know about the new Hitman World of Assassination.

Hitman World of Assassination: What to Expect?

Buckle up if you thought Hitman 3’s DLC and level importation couldn’t be more complex!

Recently, IO Interactive revealed that Hitman 1, 2, and 3 would turn into Hitman World of Assassination, a single Hitman ‘verse. However, there will continue to be a variety of versions and DLC packs available for purchase and other things we grew so accustomed to.

Check out the official announcement below:

As of January 26, 2023, the following changes are planned to come into effect.

Hitman 3 will become ‘Hitman World of Assassination,’ which will also include access to Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 through our existing Access Pass system. Current Hitman 3 owners will get a free upgrade to Hitman World of Assassination on all platforms.
We’re drastically simplifying the purchase experience for new players. Hitman World of Assassination will be the single available option to start playing.

So, what does that mean for Hitman players?

Practically, whether or not you had previously purchased them, Hitman 1 and 2 will be made immediately available, but only if you get Hitman 3 by January 26. That’s the catch!

The two available purchases for anyone who hasn’t yet purchased Hitman 3 are World of Assassination Deluxe Pack DLC ($30) and World of Assassination ($70).

The developers planned to eliminate the six distinct versions that are now up for grabs on Steam (excluding the 12 separate DLC add-ons) and ensure that, especially in the freelancer game mode, all players are using a broadly consistent collection of levels.
