It's a story that began last August, when IO announced PC players would be able to carry their Hitman 2 progression and unlocks over from Steam into Hitman 3 on the Epic Games Store, and, more pertinently, that existing Hitman 1 & 2 owners would be able to import locations from those games into the third instalment at no extra cost via an Access Pass. However, in January this year, a little over a week before Hitman 3's release, IO made a sudden U-turn, announcing that "due to various circumstances out of our control, we want to acknowledge that the process is different to our initial plans for PC players".

Hitman 3's only been out a couple of weeks, but IO Interactive clearly doesn't intend to let assassin's catch their breath; the developer has now detailed Hitman 3's first month of free post-launch content, and there's a lot going on as February unfolds. Things get underway today, 4th February, with the arrival of new Escalation contract The Baskerville Barney, which challenges players to navigate Thornbridge Manor and kill off the entire Carlisle family - but only using "accidents". That's followed on 11th February with a Dubai-set Featured Contract being released in conjunction with YouTube show MinnMax, and there's another Escalation contract arriving on 18th February - this time in the form of The Sinbad Stringent, which arms players with nothing but a throwing knife and pits them against a series of (presumably increasingly nefarious) boxes.
