[PC, Epic] Free - HITMAN 3 Access Pass: HITMAN 1 GOTY Edition for HITMAN Owners @ Epic Games

7741

HITMAN 1 (base edition) was given away for free on Epic Games last August. If you grabbed that (or bought it), you can now upgrade it for free to a Game Of The Year Edition!

  1. Add the free Hitman 3 Starter Pack to your Epic account: this counts as owning Hitman 3, a requirement for the next step.
  2. Go to the HITMAN 3 Access Pass: HITMAN 1 GOTY Edition page.
  3. There will be a price still here. Click on BUY NOW and it will be 100% discounted! You now own and can play Hitman 1 GOTY Edition within Hitman 3!

      If you read the original post here properly, you will see it already mentioned that from the beginning.

      "HITMAN 1 (base edition) was given away for free on Epic Games last August. If you grabbed that (or bought it), you can now upgrade it for free to a Game Of The Year Edition!"

      Not sure why you're negging when it works exactly as stated.

        Because it was updated. It originally suggests otherwise.

        Lots of people without Hitman 1 tried and wasted a lot time muck about, so I negged it to warn people.

          This I don't understand. From the beginning, this post always said that:

          If you grabbed that (or bought it), you can now upgrade it for free to a Game Of The Year Edition!

        •  

          Okay, to be fair, OP for some reason decided to add (in the second edit): 'Here's a workaround if you didn't'.
          Bit of an odd inclusion which probably confused a lot of people. I get your point now.

        •  

          @browser It was not updated to suggest otherwise. Everyone who negged this didn't read the post properly and are complaining against things that were clearly stated beforehand.

          The post was revised several times but the original post said exactly the same thing about having to own Hitman 1 first. You can see it for yourself under the REVISIONS tab above.

    •  

      Why is this being downvoted. Its true.

  •  

    Didnt work for me . Showing $22.29

    •  

      It works. Read the third part of the original post.

      "3. There will be a price still here. Click on BUY NOW and it will be 100% discounted! You now own and can play Hitman 1 GOTY Edition within Hitman 3!"

        If I hit buy now it still shows $22.29 and asks for credit card or PayPal. No 100% discount. I do not want to risk logging in with PayPal and getting charged.

          It works for everyone if you have the prerequisites and did everything in the required order.

          Do you already own Hitman 1? Did you get the starter pack first? If yes to both, then when clicking "Buy Now", it should then change to $0. If it's asking you for payment details then you don't have/haven't done the requirements correctly.

          If you do and have, then maybe try a different browser.

    Works. Thanks a lot op.

    I linked my Epic & Steam accounts to the same IOI, but the Hitman 3 on Epic does not acknowledge my Hitman 2 Gold Edition DLC maps. I'm just going to wait until Steam release in Jan 2022.

  •  

    thank you, worked for me just 1 minute ago.

  •  

    Worked for me through the Epic Games launcher, cheers :)

  •  

    Worked for me! thanks :)

  •  

    Worked for me now. Cheers

  •  

    worked for me when using web browser method, thanks on the share.

  •  

    Doesn't work. Owned hitman 3 starter pack but shows 22.29 on the payment page ;(

    Edit: figured it out, I missed the hitman giveaway last August unbelievably :((((

  •  

    Thanks OP! Worked for me

  •  

    Looks like it's been fixed. $29.95 at final checkout

    EDIT: Nevermind. I was doing it through the Epic Games Launcher. Through browser it worked fine.

    Not working for me, I get $22.29 at checkout. Maybe I didn't get hitman last August!

  •  

    Worked for me through Firefox web browser.
    Doesn't work through Epic Launcher wants to charge $22.29

  •  

    Worked for me. I was using a browser.

  •  

    Worked for me.. not sure why people negging.

    •  

      I didn't neg, but an earlier version of the post before updating it suggested that you could use the method above even if you missed HM1 from last year.

    So am I right to assume that playing hitman 1 levels inside Hitman 3's engine will be a better visual experience?

    •  

      good question… did they move to newer version of engine or something?

  •  

    worked for me! is there any way we can transfer the GOTY stuff to the steam version? im just waiting for steam H3 release but wouldnt mind playing the goty stuff in H2

  •  

    Response was Sorry, you don't have the prerequisite for this purchase.

  •  

    RTFI and it worked for me :)

    •  

      They changed the information. It originally said you could still get the game for free by clicking buy it now and the price would change to 0. But that only works if you already own it.

      •  

        But that only works if you already own it.

        again RTFI

        I did not own the game - I just did 1) then 2) and 3) and it worked as instructed.

    This post is a perfect demonstration that half the crowd doesn't REALLY read the original post and only read what they want to hear in their mind.

    Also, thanks OP, got something to play on the new desktop.

      This post is a perfect demonstration of someone thinking they know everything when they've only been given half the information.

      The original post said "here's a workaround if you didn't get Hitman 1 (when it was free in August)".
      That bit was removed because already owning Hitman 1 is a prerequisite to get the GOTY Ed.
      There is no workaround.

      •  

        While I do agree with you regarding the original post, there are people still posting AFTER the fact that the post was edited.
        Maybe not half anymore though lol

        The work around worked for me and I don't own Hitman 1.

          Same for me

  •  

    I was trying this on a mobile browser and it wouldn't work, but on PC it worked. Thanks!

  •  

    Still works. Thanks!

  •  

    Anyone know how to check your library (eg. if I did get the Hitman 1 freebie last year) on the web browser?

    • +1 vote

      You can't since that edition of the game is no longer available for purchase. If it was just visit the game page in Epic Store and it will show OWNED if your logged in and already purchased the game. However if you follow the instruction to claim you'll soon find out if you do as it will be $22.29 when added to the cart instead of $0 if you don't own Hitman 1.

      You can check via the Purchase History page.

      Hover over your username in the top right and click Account, then click Transactions.

      At the bottom of the page, click the Show More button until you get to August 2020.

      If you claimed Hitman, it should appear in the list somewhere between the 27th of August and the 4th of September.

  •  

    Thanks OP. Worked on my PC browser - no problems.

  •  

    Worked for me last night, cheers.

  •  

    Thanks worked just then. Make sure you use a browser and not the Epic Launcher.

  •  

    Got it just now, cheers OP 🍻👍

  •  

    For all those who reckon they didn't get Hitman 1 last August, go into your account history and double check that you don't have an entry for HITMAN around xx/8/2020.

    If you don't, lucky you. LOL.

    On a separate note, it's so funny how many "upgrade loopholes" this series has had. I've paid literally $0 for this game and I have full versions of Hitman 1, and most of Hitman 2, on PS4 and PC.

    •  

      Really?! Parts of Hitman 2 PC was free? On Steam or through Epic?

      I really like IO. It seems that 007 games have finally found the right developer.

      • +1 vote

        Steam has had Hitman 1 and 2 free. Epic only Hitman 1.

        Anyone who owns Hitman 1 on Epic Games store, including anyone who grabbed the free version in August, will be upgraded automatically for free to the Hitman 1 GOTY Access Pass after buying Hitman 3.

        Unfortunately for PC user IO Interactive has not made Hitman 2 or Hitman 1 and 2 Steam version available for free to those who already own these games. To get the Hitman 2 levels in Hitman 3, you'll need to buy the relevant Access Pass, which "will be 80% off for 14 days after the launch of Hitman 3 on Epic Games Store and will continue to be discounted regularly.

    •  

      Yeah Sony had a week or weekend to play Hitman 1 for free to celebrate Hitman 2 launch. During that free period you could launch Hitman 2 and claim the Hitman 1 GOTY dlc for it for free and you got to keep Hitman 1 within Hitman 2 after the trial period ended 😂

  •  

    Worked for me.

    So I can access Hitman 1 GOTY area with the free starter Hitman 3? Or do i need to purchase Hitman 3?

    Works perfectly for me. Gosh those negs are hard

  •  

    This might be the one week I didn't get the freebie

  •  

    Worked for me, thanks OP

  •

    Works for users with it in their Steam library as well.

    I Had Hitman 1 based game and Hitman 2 base game in steam but nothing in Epic Games as didnt claim Hitman via epic.

    Link both your epic and steam to your ioi and you can claim it through ioi directly. (To link both, select sign in using steam, then enter your ioi account credentials to link, sign out -> back to ioi and sign in via epic games, then enter your ioi credentials again to link)

    https://account.ioi.dk/claim/h3/pc/accesspass

    Once you've linked either your epic or steam account which had 1, you are entitled to the GOTY.
