Fancy a trip to Paris? Hitman’s opening level is now available for free in Hitman 3.
Thanks to IO Interactive, all this week you can sneak, slash and shove your way around Hitman’s Parisian fashion show and it won’t cost you a penny extra. All you need is a copy of Hitman 3, either the full game or the free starter pack, and you’re good to go.
Of course, IO are hoping you buy the full version of Hitman, so you can import every one of its six main levels, if you don’t already own it. But spending a week roaming around Paris’s stately palace is nothing to sniff at; it may not be as vast as some but the game makes good use of its many floors. Also, aside from attempting to murder a “fashion designer” and his partner in crime, you can explore the many user-created contracts and just mess about with a myriad of toys, lethal and otherwise.
We gave Hitman’s first season eight out ten when we reviewed it, calling it “a must-have for stealth fans yet to savour its delights”. The game was originally released episodically meaning Paris was the first proper level players got to experience and if you’ve yet to do your little turn on the catwalk, you’ve got nothing to lose.
Hitman 3 is available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and, streaming, on Stadia and Switch. Hitman’s Paris level is free until June 6th.
