There are only 4 more days until the game launches and there are still plenty of unanswered questions that IOI has still yet to address:
How much do the access passes cost?
After IO dropped the bomb that PC players would have to re-purchase HITMAN 2 in the form of an access pass, they decided to intentionally leave out the prices of every access pass that will be available. The Epic Games store does not have these passes available in the store yet. As someone who does not want to wait another whole year for the game, I would like to at least know what I am forced to pay for content I already own :/
How do achievements carryover to HITMAN 3? (Do they carryover at all?!)
In yesterday's horrible pre-launch guide post, IO failed to mention how or if achievements will be carried over as part of the progression carryover. From yesterday's post: "After completing the carryover process, HITMAN 2 players will be able to start HITMAN 3 with their existing player profile, XP rank, location mastery levels, location mastery unlocks, challenge progress, challenge unlocks and Elusive Target suits/unlocks. " No mention on how achievements will carryover or if they will carryover AT ALL. Would be a shame if we have to redo every HITMAN 1 and 2 achievement in HITMAN 3.
How will Elusive Targets be reworked (if at all)?
In an earlier post by IO, they announced every "game mode" that will be in HITMAN 3. When describing Elusive Targets, they said that "we're making some changes to the Elusive Target formula that we'll reveal at a later date". It's 4 days until launch and we STILL have heard NOTHING about the new formula (or if ETs will even still be in the game!).
How can we unlock the phantom suit that was originally a ghost mode unlock?
All they have said is that it will be an unlock in HITMAN 3, but nothing about how it will be available as an unlock.
What bug fixes will HITMAN 3 bring that weren't addressed in HITMAN 2?
HITMAN 2 still has many bugs that weren't addressed after the final patch came to the game. Will HITMAN 3 address these bugs or will the game be buggy from launch and IO will patch them throughout the game's lifetime?
Why can't PC players pre-load the game?
IO confirmed that PC players will be the only players that will not be able to pre-load the 70 GB game before launch. Could we at least know WHY?!
Will contracts mode get any more features?
A lot of people have been asking for contracts mode to have more creative features that will allow creators to make conditions similar to escalations. So far we have heard nothing about contracts mode.
What post-launch support can we expect?
We can assume that HITMAN 3 will be a live service similar to the games before it, but what exactly can we expect? As I stated earlier, we still have heard nothing about the new ET formula. Will we get HITMAN 1 and 2 legacy ETs in rotation as well? Are there going to be any (DLC) expansions? Will there be any seasonal missions like Holdiay Horders and Hokkaido Snow Festival?
After the final month of new content, how long will the HITMAN 3 servers stay up?
I know this is far into the future, but eventually, IO will stop content support for HITMAN 3, like the games before it. When this happens, how long will the servers stay up (since this is a single-player game with fucking always online requirement)? When the servers eventually go down, will challenges and escalations be available to play offline? Will ETs be permanently available after the servers go down as well?!
4 days until launch, and there are still many unanswered questions that IO has still yet to address.
