Hitman 3 has been released on Steam after a year-long exclusivity at Epic Games Store. Although it’s an excellent title that you should play, early Steam reviews suggest otherwise. Hitman 3 currently has a mixed rating on Steam, with 435 reviews. But that’s not to say it is a bad game.
Half of the reviews are negative, and the most common theme is price. Hitman 3’s Steam price is $60, the same as it was on Epic one year ago. Many critics are upset that the Steam release doesn’t include a launch discount. Some cite Borderlands 3’s 50% Steam launch discount as an example. Some view a launch discount as a well-deserved gesture after waiting one year for the Steam version. Many reviewers agree that a one-year-old game shouldn’t be sold at full price, regardless of its exclusivity window.

One negative review said that the price tag was “insulting,” considering how many people waited for the game to arrive on Steam.

60 EUR for a game older than a year. There are no discounts, franchise sales, or discounts for those who own H1 and H2 on Steam. Samurai 47 wrote: “Nothing.”

CaptainSavvy wrote, “My positive review has been locked behind a one year timed exclusivity agreement.”

Many Steam customers are unhappy that Hitman 3 was markedly discounted during Epic’s holiday sale. It was $23.99, but you could cash in Epic’s $10 coupons to get it $13.99. It’s now back at $60 on Epic and Steam.

However, the price is not what critics complain about. Many reviewers point out that Hitman 3’s multiple editions are confusing and poorly explained, particularly for those who want to transfer their Hitman 1/2 progress from Hitman 3 to Hitman 3 (you need to purchase the Standard edition and then use IOI’s progress transfer tool). Some are dissatisfied with the performance and limitations of Hitman’s VR mode. VR is at the top of IOI’s known issues, and a hotfix was implemented today to improve performance.

This minor uproar also reached the Hitman subreddit. Most of the top posts about Hitman 3’s Steam price and its confusing editions. One fan created a flowchart to help players find the right edition.

Although Hitman 3’s packaging is the subject of much discussion, there are few negative reviews. Most of those who review the game’s gameplay say it is great but leave a negative review due to Epic’s price and its time on Epic. The $13.99 Epic discount was not available at the time. However, those who reviewed the game on Steam refused to use Epic for any reason.

If you are willing to pay a monthly subscription, there is an even better deal for the entire Hitman Trilogy. All three games have just been added to PC Game Pass. This version appears to be crashing for some users, but IOI has a workaround via its official issues tracker.
