IO Interactive has today announced that they’ve finally implemented location importing from previous Hitman games into Hitman 3.

After stating that this would be in place "before the end of February", IO Interactive today tweeted the news that “HITMAN 3 PC players can now import locations from HITMAN 1 and HITMAN 2 at no additional cost.”

The developers have also released a 3-step online guide to help players through the process, which just requires an IOI online account, and a copy of Hitman 3, as well as the previous games you want to import from on PC. According to the website, once you have claimed the content, it “cannot be undone or reversed” and they recommend “using a PC browser, [as] the location importing site is not fully optimised for mobile browsers.”

This process started out as an issue with IOI Accounts and resulted in the studio tweeting “we're hard at work on getting IOI Account back online to enable progression carry over.” as fans had previously worried that they’d have to repurchase the older games on the Epic Games Store due to Hitman 3 being exclusively available to the digital storefront for its first year of release.

For many fans, this fix has been a long time coming as IO Interactive's pre-launch guide suggests: "If you have already started playing Hitman 3 and then choose to perform the progression carryover process, you will lose all progression earned within Hitman 3 up to that point. We recommend you carryover progress before starting Hitman 3." Thankfully, IO Interactive delivered just in time.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
