Epic Games signs up another great exclusive for its digital game store on PC: Hitman 3.
Agent 47 will complete his trilogy next January, for PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC. And on the latter platform, Hitman 3 will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store, as just announced. Rest assured, the first delivery will be free in your store next week. Also, a new trailer has been revealed, showing a new location in England.
Unlike the two previous games, which were published by Square Enix the first, and Warner Bros. Interactive the second, Hitman 3 will be self-published by IO Interactive. This agreement with Epic Games is an aid to the studio, and according to its CEO, Hakan Abrak, this is a big step towards achieving its ambitious plans as an independent studio.
For Epic Games, it is also another great goal for its digital game store, which “steals” another highly anticipated game from Steam, its main competition.
What’s more for the gamers?
Recently, Epic secured the exclusive for a year of A Total War Saga: Troy, who also gave away for 24 hours with great success. Unlike that exclusive, which was temporary, this exclusive is complete. Epic Games will be the only platform to buy Hitman 3 on PC.
However, if you played Hitman 2 on Steam, you can still track your progress to the sequel on the Epic Games Store.
Haven’t you played any Hitman? Well, watch out for next week, as Hitman (2016) will be available for free on the Epic Store. If you claim it during the week between August 27 and September 3, it will be yours forever.
