IO Interactive announced Thursday that players on PC can now import levels from the first two games, which makes the entire World of Assassination trilogy accessible from Hitman 3. Players can import the levels from Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 by visiting the IO Interactive site, where the developer has set up a three-step guide.
This feature took some time to work out, and players weren’t able to import levels when Hitman 3 launched on Jan. 20. Hitman 3 is currently an Epic Games Store exclusive, and will remain so for a year. However, Hitman 2 is only available on Steam, which led to the technical issue. IO announced that it would begin working on a solution, which was echoed by Epic Games in a statement on social media. “We never want players to feel forced to repurchase content on the Epic Game Store that they bought on another PC store so they can access features in a new game,” Epic Games said.

Now that this update is live, players can start to pull off their most creative murders across stages from all three games. There will likely be future DLC missions to play through in the form of Escalation Contracts, but IO has yet to confirm the exact nature or release window of any future content.
