but I am curious if that is because you are concerned about getting what was promised, or if you are more excited about the old levels in the new engine?
Mainly getting what was promised, but also as a major fan of this franchise. I can forgive the switch to the Epic Launcher for this third installment, and I was happy to buy the Deluxe Edition there once it released. But based on previous information from IOI, I expected to be able to enjoy the entire trilogy in one total package. You have to understand that for people like me who have been playing this game regularly since the release of the first one (I've bought every DLC and I play Hitman 2 semi-regularly still, hundreds of hours total), getting the whole trilogy together in one package like this is the dream we've been having about this series since the first game. The interface always felt like a platform that would befit a huge amount of content like this, with all your progression and unlocks attached. It feels very whole, if that makes sense, and this third game would be the completed vision of that.
