H1 and H2 related contet requires Access Packs. The same logic applied to H2 where you needed GOTY pack in order to access H1-related content. So I am not entirely sure what is the problem. Maybe IO could specify that this target is available only for those who owns previous game/s but no one expected that someone would question that.
If I want to buy Hitman 3 on ioi.dk I find 2 packs: Hitman3 and Hitman3 Deluxe.
If I look at the roadmap communication (February and since few hours March as well) I see that there is Elusive Target coming for free for Hitman3 players.
Is it really free for H3 players ?
No, you need to own other products than H3
If you want to be tricky we can ask: could I knew it ?
From what I understand from you guys it’s a “Yes”, as you experienced the same offers if you played Hitman 1 maps in Hitman 2. But playing H2 and H1, and knowing how it works back then with ET is not a condition we should expect from players before buying H3.
Yes, and it’s your choise what edition you to buy.
If you change your mind in a future, you can upgrade from Standard to Deluxe.
But you can’t downgrade. And who would want that as the better edition gives you more benefits
Any of Roadmap that I saw never stated that a content it offers goes with or without additional charge
For me it is free. I payed only a price for HITMAN 3 and nothing more.
In the past I also bought HITMAN 2016 and HITMAN 2, and as an owner of those connected games I’m eligible to merge all three games into one for no additional cost.
But I payed a respectful price for each of three games.
And additional content was always free, unless it was stated otherwise.
So to be honest I’m not fully understand what you’re trying to achieve here.
If you want to play a game - buy it. If you don’t want - just pass by.
Again, personally I bought all three games, and now I have access to all three in HITMAN 3.
This system works for any player. Doesn’t matter if he’s new or old, you still have to buy a game
