Ever since the release of Hitman 3, PC fans of the iconic stealth-action franchise have been waiting to access all of the previous locations they'd purchased through Hitman 1 and 2. While that's a simple task on PlayStation or Xbox, it has proved more difficult on PC, with the game's limited-time exclusivity to the Epic Games Store meaning players who enjoyed the previous two games on Steam were unable to transfer their content to the new platform.

As of today, IO Interactive has officially solved that problem, offering a way for former-Steam users accessing Hitman 3through the Epic Games Store to import their levels from Hitman 1 and 2. Transferring levels is now a simple process, with IO setting up a web page that provides step-by-step instructions on how to bring previous locations across to the new game.

HITMAN 2 introduces new ways to play, new game modes and new features, including the new Sniper Assassin mode with franchise first co-op play. STAFF REVIEW - BY GREEN MAN GAMING. HITMAN™ 2 available on Steam. 91% positive of 21699 user reviews. With 8 trading cards and 146 achievements. 72 users have this game to trade, 117 want it, and 1192 own it in library. In 1 bundle and 0 giveaways. Hitman 2 is available on Steam but not on the Epic Games Store, where the PC version of Hitman 3 will be sold exclusively for one year following its Jan.
Before starting, players are advised to take some precautions to ensure everything is processed smoothly. IO Interactive recommends that users double-check all of the content they're claiming during the import process to ensure they're correct, warning that 'they cannot be undone or reversed.' It also recommends they use a web browser on their PC rather than a mobile device, claiming the site isn't optimized fully for mobile.
Next, it describes what players will be getting through the import, stating that they'll receive an Access Pass DLC for Hitman 1 and 2 that will make the games' prior locations playable in Hitman 3. This is similar to what players on consoles have to download to access the content in their versions of the game.

To start the process, players have to sign into their IOI Account, at which point they'll be asked to read the import procedure's instructions, review their accounts, and then claim the locations they want to bring across to the game. Before long, they'll be able to access all prior World of Assassination Trilogy content in the Epic Games Store's version of Hitman 3. Seeing as the sequel was marketed as the comprehensive hub for the entire trilogy – with players able to access each iteration of the new reboot through it – it's great to hear PC players will finally be able to play the entire collection of Hitman locations via one game regardless of where they purchased them.
Hitman 3 released just under a month ago, bringing with it six fresh locations that spun an epic conclusion to the World of Assassination Trilogy first started in 2016's Hitman. The game amassed rave reviews and sold well, turning a profit within a week of its release. IO Interactive will now move on to its next project, with the team slated to work on a James Bond game titled Project 007.
Hitman 3 is out now on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Google Stadia, and Nintendo Switch.

If you are going into Hitman 3 after playing Hitman 2, you are in luck! You can carry over any progress made in all the maps on that game into the new title. Unfortunately, this can only be done on the same platform, so you cannot cross transfer your progress. For example, an Xbox One account on Hitman 2 can be transferred to the Xbox One or Series X version of Hitman 3, but not PlayStation 4 or 5. The fact you can carry progress over at all is very exciting, considering the hundreds of hours players have put into the older maps. Starting over from the beginning on each map from the first game was disappointing when Hitman 2 released, so it is good to see they have taken care of that problem. Here is how you carry over your Hitman 2 progress into Hitman 3.
Create an IOI account
First, it is recommended that you do this before you start playing Hitman 3 because if you do this after starting, you will lose all progress made in Hitman 3. You need to access the IO Interactive website via a web browser and create an IOI account in the top right of the page to carry over your progress. After you create the account, you will get an email to activate it, so be sure to check your junk folder if you do not see it after a couple of minutes. When you start the account, you are able to link it to your Epic Games Store, Nintendo Switch Online, PlayStation Network, Steam, or Xbox Live account. Be sure to link the account you have the Hitman 2 save data on. Note: Stadia is considered a different platform from the Epic Game Store and Steam, so you cannot carry progress between those platforms.
Once you activate your email, you should be taken directly to your account page; otherwise, click on IOI Account in the official website’s top right. Click on Account Settings, and you can manage your linked accounts. When you get into Hitman 3 on the account you connected for the first time, you will see a message asking if you want to carry over your progress and then be taken to a webpage to do so. Important reminder: if you have started playing Hitman 3 before doing this, you will lose all progress.

As of this writing, we were only able to link one account, and when we tried to delete it and link another one, the webpage broke down, so there may be server issues that hopefully will be addressed. This is important when you realize people trying to carry progress from Steam to the Epic Game Store need to link both accounts. We also ran into a situation where it would not reveal the name of the account we linked but did show the platform. If this happens to you, check to see if the progress was carried over in-game anyway. If not, you may need to contact IO Interactive’s customer service.
What is carried over?
When you move your progression over to Hitman 3, you bring everything you have gained previously in Hitman 2 maps over. This includes your Hitman 2 player profile, XP rank, location mastery levels, location mastery unlocks, challenge progressions, challenge unlocks, and finally, any suits and unlocks gained through elusive target contracts. If you have saved progress of a mission in progress, it will not be carried over. Unfortunately, you cannot move any progress from the 2016 Hitman game over, only Hitman 2, so if you skipped out on the sequel, you are stuck starting from scratch. Also, if you did not own the Legacy DLC pack in Hitman 2, which included the original maps, you will not be able to access those maps in Hitman 3 unless you purchase it.
