The Ultimate Guide to the Hitman Starter Pack – Play Hitman for Free

What is the Hitman Starter Pack?

The Hitman 3 Starter Pack is a completely free download that gives you access to the first two levels of the latest Hitman trilogy game. It serves as a demo, allowing you to experience the incredible gameplay, updated graphics and new mechanics of Hitman 3 without spending a dime!

As a fellow gaming enthusiast, I know how awesome it feels to try out a hot new title for free. The Starter Pack lets you play the entire ICA Facility and Hawke‘s Bay levels from Hitman 3. All the progress you make carries over if you decide to purchase the full experience later on.

It‘s really an unbelievable deal – a free taste of one of the highest rated stealth games in recent years!

Unlocking Hitman 1 & 2 Levels in Hitman 3

Now, here comes the truly mind-blowing part. When you purchase Hitman 3, you can also get free access to all the levels from the previous Hitman games!

As a fan since the original Hitman: Codename 47, I was over the moon when IO Interactive announced this. It‘s an incredible value-add and lets you experience the entire World of Assassination trilogy in one unified package.

As long as you meet a few requirements, the process is surprisingly simple:


  • You must own a digital copy of Hitman 3.
  • Your platform account must be linked across all three Hitman games.

For example, if you have Hitman 3 on PlayStation, you need Hitman 1 and 2 also on your PlayStation account. Disc copies or different accounts won‘t work.


  1. Install and open Hitman 3.
  2. Go to the in-game store menu.
  3. Find and ‘purchase‘ the Hitman 1 and 2 Access Passes.
  4. The passes will be added to your account.
  5. You can now access all the previous levels via Hitman 3!

It‘s that easy! As a fellow deal-hunter and budget-conscious gamer, I was delighted at how seamless the process was.

What‘s Included in the Access Passes

Now, let‘s look at everything you get with the Hitman 1 and 2 Access Passes:

Hitman 1 Access Pass (GOTY Edition)

  • ICA Facility
  • Paris
  • Sapienza
  • Marrakesh
  • Bangkok
  • Colorado
  • Hokkaido
  • 3 Bonus Missions
  • The Icon

  • Landslide

That‘s the entire Hitman 1 package with all major locations and bonus content!

Hitman 2 Access Pass

  • Hawke‘s Bay
  • Miami
  • Santa Fortuna
  • Mumbai
  • Whittleton Creek
  • Isle of Sgàil
  • New York

Again, you get the full Hitman 2 experience, including post-launch DLC. That‘s easily over $100 worth of content unlocked for free!

In total, the Access Passes add around 20+ levels and over 100 hours of gameplay into Hitman 3. As a fellow completionist, this amount of content makes me giddy!

Hitman Series Sales Statistics

To understand the value of the Access Passes, let‘s look at some sales data for the Hitman trilogy:

  • Hitman 1 sold over 7 million copies worldwide. (Source: IO Interactive)
  • Hitman 2 sold over 4 million copies as of 2020. (Source: IO Interactive)
  • Hitman 3 sold 300,000 copies in its first week. (Source: IO Interactive)

Considering each game retailed for $60 originally, this represents over $600 million in gross revenue!

As a tech and data-driven gamer, stats like these make the Access Passes seem like an absolute steal.

Tips for New Players

For those new to the World of Assassination, here are some pro-tips from an experienced fan:

  • Take your time and explore each level completely.
  • Observe routines and listen to NPC conversations.
  • Save often as you experiment with options.
  • Complete Mission Stories to understand gameplay.
  • Unlocked items carry over between all three games.

The open-ended design means there are so many ways to approach each target. Spend time learning the systems to become an expert assassin!

With the Starter Pack and Access Passes, you can play the entire Hitman saga on one platform. It‘s an astonishingly player-friendly move by IO Interactive!
