    Men,

    I bought this game at the flee market for $1 (what a steal, right?) since all the prestigious codex peeps said it is p. gud.

    However, I can't get all the features and exclusive contracts and dlc maps other cool stuff to enable.

    HELP! What am I doing wrong?

    I am NOT a pirate, here's a picture of prestigious thread with my CD.

    Game is 42€ on Humble Bundle, 56€ for Silver and 63€ for Gold for a day and a half from now. Not a bad sale.
    https://www.humblebundle.com/store/hitman-2

    One of the episodes went free I think, and you can farm Steam trading cards from it. A lot of them are bots probably.

    if you have hitman 1, but don't have patient zero pack, it is currently cheaper to buy the Patient Zero DLC from hitman 1 store page, instead of buying the legacy upgrade pack from hitman 2 store page.

    https://store.steampowered.com/dlc/236870/ < is discounted 73% which bring the price below 5 dollars for me

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/960832/HITMAN__GOTY_Legacy_Pack_Upgrade/ < not discounted so the price is about 10 dollars for me.

    edit: overall, if you dont have season 1, it is cheaper than legacy pack.

    I don't get it, I bought this Hitman 2, but all I've unlocked is one mission and a cut scene and I need to buy all the other missions individually or someshit?

    I deliberately didn't buy the full gold, just the standard.

    The menu is a bit confusing if you don't own both seasons. The map you're talking about is Christmas Paris which is free to play at the moment, go to Campaign -> Story Hitman 2 to access the maps you just got. Or Destinations -> Hawke's Bay to Himmelstein.

    If you want season 1's maps, buy either HITMAN™ - Game of The Year Edition (seperate entry in Steam library) or HITMAN™ - GOTY Legacy Pack and Legacy Pack Upgrade (DLC for Hitman 2). DON'T BUY LEGACY PACK UPGRADE ALONE, it only gives Patient Zero bonus episode. Confusing, I know.

    So far, after my $50 purchase all I see is Hawke's Bay - which I've done for now. And that's it. Everything else is "GET ACCESS", "GET ACCESS".

    You're telling me $50 only gets you one beach map? And yet for free I got TWO whole maps as ICA training missions?

    I don't get it, where's the rest of the content that my $50 got me? Yay for time limited holiday maps I guess?

    uuuuuh, you're supposed to get 6 maps: Hawke's Bay, Miami, Mumbai, Santa Fortuna, Whittleton Creek, Isle of Sgail and a bonus sniper assassin map Himmelstein.
    Have you installed these under DLC tab?

    Why the fuck would standard content be listed as DLCs to be installed separately? Dafuq is this bullshit.

    Oh and fuck you for triggering a 57 GB "update".

    They aren't, they should be installing automatically and all boxes should be ticked. Steam is just a bit fucky right now, I guess.

    It's probably because the game was originally designed to be episodic like the one before it.

    Also, I think this one has the same demo mechanic as the previous one, where you can download the tutorial missions and play with them to see if you like the game.

    PowerTorment I dislike lighting changes in Legacy missions. This new Bloom is much heavier on my eyes. Any chance of getting an option to tone that shit down?

    Why can't we still replay elusive targets indefinitely? Just make the score you get when you complete one permanent but at least allow people to replay the missions and fuck around with them more.

    Picked it up in the steam sales, now I'm wondering if I have to install both Hitman 1 as well as Hitman 2 to play all the missions?

    you only need hitman 2 installed. Uncheck and re-check all of the boxes under the DLC section and it should start downloading a giant update.

    I have no clue what you mean by "flashing shit on the screen" as the UI is very clean in my opinion, but yes you can turn off everything in the UI.
