    They'll probably have a "HITMAN: World of Assassination Trilogy" or whatever collection/bundle out by the time this is on Steam. Best to wait till then if you've not already bought in.

    The overall story is pretty dumb and badly presented, but the stories in the levels themselves are pretty good IMO. I tend to just ignore the overall narrative and focus on the stuff inside the level.

    Any word on how Hitman 1 and 2 levels work in this? I assume it's tied to my IOI account since they went with Epic, but I haven't read anything about all three being inside the game.

    I hope the Dubai level includes more scaling of the skyscraper exterior than this video shows. Say what you like about Mission Impossible/Tom Cruise but that sequence was great:

    A reminder that on windows 10 you can already use the compact powershell command to shrink your bloated Hitman 1/2 game folder down to one third of its size and get it to run smoother too.

    Apparently IOI stated our Hitman 1 and 2 levels will port over from Steam to the Epic version of Hitman 3, FYI. I assume they'll just use your IOI account to verify ownership. Not sure if that was clear before, I definitely had questions.

    With about 24 missions total, rehashed and banded together in Hitman 3, it seems it's time for this franchise to rest for a few years while IOI put out the 007 game.

    I definitely think this is really a finale. They have said so themselves, and the big deluxe package doesn't even promise mission DLCs so I'm guessing the final level wraps things up pretty definitively.

    Not gonna lie tho, I'd buy some remix missions like season one got. Season two's were lame though.

    Still bitter about the exclusivity deal, but I still think the full package all three seasons will compose in the future will be a damn good franchise capstone for Hitman as a whole for the next few years. Can’t think of a better series of games whose quality and accessibility has been this maligned by external factors this generation.

    Season 1's original missions were better than the updated versions they put in Season 2. The lighting was different than what was intended in Season 1 and for me it never felt the same as the original.

    The exclusivity deal means I'll probably have played it pirated by the time I'm able to buy it on steam, and as usual I'll wait for 50% off. At least I'll be ok knowing that Tim Sweeny prepaid for my pirated copy.

    It all looks good, real good...
    Concerning. God I hope they don't cop out and end it all on some cinematic non-level devoid of gameplay or depth. The final levels of each prior season are some of the best they've made for these games.

    Playing a VR game with a controller when we're already into the second generation of VR controllers using more sophisticated motion controls should tell you how little thought has gone into the VR mode. They could've at least used the Disco Dildos PSVR comes with but they bizarrely lack an analogue stick so I can see why they would avoid them.

    Hitman 2 had 5 levels and a sort of mini-level at launch. The first 5 here seem to be full levels, so if the finale is a bit smaller (like a train) I'm okay with that.

    The Cheevo list for 3 came out recently, and among other things it seems to imply the finale level is going to be comparable in size to 2's little opening level. I agree, what I was afraid of was that it would turn out to be less than that.

    It looks like they've got some additions planned for some of the Season 2 missions. 3's Cheevo list has the mastery levels for Whittleton Creek and the Bank set to 20 rather than the 15 they've got in season 2 currently.
