Hitman 3 allows players to transfer their saves over from the previous two games and also lets them play the entire trilogy in the recent release. However, we understand that this can be a little confusing to some players. In this guide, we’ve detailed all there’s to know about transferring progress from Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 to Hitman 3.
How to Transfer Progress from Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 to Hitman 3
Before talking about the transfer process, let’s talk about what can and can’t be transferred:
- Player Profile
- Character Level
- Mastery Level
- Rewards from Mastery Levels
- All Challenges
- Elusive Targets Progress
- Transferring Saves from Steam to Epic Games Store
As for things that can’t be carried over to Hitman 3 from the previous installments, it only includes mid-way mission progress. In addition to this, since the previous two games never made it to Nintendo Switch, there isn’t any way to import progress from those installments to Hitman 3 on Nintendo’s home console.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that the transfer only works once. If players have already transferred from Steam to Epic Games Store, they won’t be able to transfer from Epic Games Store to Steam when the game launches on Valve’s platform sometime next year in 2022.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about the actual transfer process:
First things first, the transfer only works between a platform’s ecosystem – there isn’t any support for cross-platform.
What this means is that players won’t be able to transfer data from Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 from PS4 to Epic Games Store. It only works between PS4 to PS5, Xbox One to Xbox One Series X, and Steam to Epic Games Store.
To start, players will need to log in to an existing IOI Interactive account or make a new one. Once done, return to the login screen and select the compatible systems.
It’s also a good idea to do this before playing Hitman 3 as it completely wipes the current progress. Lastly, there isn’t any way to jump directly from Hitman 1 to Hitman 3. Players must own Hitman 2 and all the data imported from Hitman 1 to Hitman 2 first.
That’s all we’ve got in how to transfer progress from Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 to Hitman 3. For more help on the game, feel free to check out our Hitman 3 wiki guides.
