Hitman 3 Early Access: How to Get
By Jack O'Dwyer
Hitman 3 Early Access remains a mystery as IO Interactive (IOI) closes in on the title's release date.
Hitman 3 is set to release on Jan. 20 for the Nintendo Switch, PC, Stadia, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. Players have had and will still have the opportunity to pre-order the game until its launch. While the pre-order has its own unique advantages, some players are wondering if their order may give them early access to the game.

Unfortunately, there is no early access feature for Hitman 3. There is no way for players to access the game, titles, or content before it goes live on Jan. 20. There is, however, an option to pre-load the game ahead of release so that it's ready to play immediately.
Pre-ordering is also an option and results in the exclusive addition of the Trinity Pack. There are nine in-game items included in this pack and are available regardless of which version players pick. More information about pre-ordering can be found on IOI's website.
Players also have the option to take advantage of IOI's Access Pass feature. Essentially, purchasing this pass allows for access to content from select titles within the franchise. If they already have the content and are considering buying a pass for the same platform, however, the pass will come at no additional cost.
"For example, if you buy the HITMAN 2 Standard Access Pass DLC for HITMAN 3, you’ll get access to the locations and missions included in the HITMAN 2 Standard Edition within HITMAN 3," IOI explained.
Otherwise, fans will just have to wait for Hitman 3 to hit shelves.
