In Canada, (and some parts of Europe apparently,) a 1-month subscription to Playstation Plus is currently ONE DOLLAR (CAD) until September 9th.

So, it’s a great time to:

  • Subscribe now for a dollar, or before Sept 9.
  • Download Hitman 2 on September 7th for “free”
  • Download the Hitman 3 Starter Pack
  • Load up the H2 Access Pass, and own Hitman 2 (in Hitman 3) forever?
  • And turn off Auto Renew!!

lel. For long term PS subscribers that just redeem everything every month (which a lot of people seem to do), this would enable to them to have the full WoA in H3 having only paid for H3 since H1 was up for free with PS Plus back in January 2019.

Some general FAQs we’ve gotten:

  • What does the HITMAN 2 Standard Edition include?
    The Standard Edition includes 7 locations + a Sniper Assassin mode location:
    Miami, Santa Fortuna, Mumbai, Whittleton Creek, Isle of Sgail & Himmelstein. ICA Facility & Hawke’s Bay are free.

  • Why do I only have access to ICA Facility Hawke’s Bay / Why did I not get the full game?
    The locations that are included with the HITMAN 2 Standard Edition are installed individually. If they were not added to the download queue in the Notifications tab then you need to do install them manually.
    Finding the uninstalled locations in your HITMAN 2 add-ons:
    *PS4: Homescreen > Library > HITMAN 2 > Playstation Store > Your Add-ons.
    *PS5: Highlight the HITMAN 2 app > press Options > select Manage Game Content.
