    Gold Edition doesn't have Legacy Pack- it must be bought separately.

    There're 2 versions of Legacy Pack- GOTY and normal. GOTY has everything normal has + mini- campaign (all right, but maps are reskins, not brand new) + some extra items.

    I've read a Legacy pack FAQ explaining if you got the Hitman 1 GOTY (my case) you can unlock the Gold Legacy pack for free. The correct way to do it, according to this FAQ, is installing Hitman 1 first and then installing Hitman 2 and enabling the Legacy pack through an option inside it.

    I'll try this.

    This game was sold in a very normal way, so not sure what you mean. Base game and expansion pass. It's the first one that was episodic.

    Usually I'd agree but for this format I actually think it works pretty well. Every map is kind of a game in itself, and waiting a couple months for the next one encourages you to really finish the last one, and builds anticipation. It's not like the Telltale model where the story would obviously be better if done all at once, with interconnected locations. Also it's not like you'd get a complete game any sooner, so you can just wait for them to all be out. Fans of the series seem divided right down the middle on which is better though, so you're far from alone.

    It doesn't suck so bad, I usually wait a year for a decent sale anyhow.

    PowerTorment Why is the Hitman 2016 GOTY pack on sale but not the 2016 Legacy Pack for Hitman 2?
