Get the second mission in HITMAN completely free to keep right now

Posted by , | Views: 4,150

Not sure if HITMAN is for you? You can currently grab the HITMAN [Steam] Spring Pack completely free on Steam to get a permanent copy.

Developed by IO Interactive, who are now an independent developer after parting ways with Square Enix, HITMAN was later ported to Linux back in February of last year by Feral Interactive and it remains one of my favourite Linux games. It's a quality port, the gameplay is demanding and exciting with tons of possibilities in how you do each mission.

What do you actually get? Well, you get the ICA Facility Location as well as the Sapienza Location (Episode 2), which is probably the best level available in HITMAN. If you like it, you can then buy the rest of the content any time. The rest of the content is on sale too, so it's a seriously good deal going on.

You can see the full information here, or just head to Steam and download it. You've got till April 3rd to get it!

No, you fools! It's spring forward, fall pack!

Nice! For those like me who can't seem able to add it to their library due to already owning Episode 1 - Paris after getting the similar free Winter holiday pack, here's a workaround:

Go to https://steamdb.info/app/439890/ and click the "Free" button, and let it open the steam:// URI in your Steam client. That worked for me to add it as an owned DLC.

Now I should actually take time to play those two episodes and buy the rest from the Feral store

Argh. Doesn't work for me. The Steam client opens at the Hitman page, but nothing happens.

Oh, well. I have a couple of weeks to figure it out, at least...

For those having issues, letting Feral's support team know is a good first step: http://support.feralinteractive.com/en/contact/

Might be a simple packaging issue they can solve.

Because I have something HITMAN related already from this specific series of the game at first it doesn't seemed to work for me on the Steam page to get the new Spring pack for free. (Or it at least looked like that it did not seem to work.) However it registered fine on my Steam account the following way:

Start Steam on Linux normally as you would. When Steam is up and running, open a (new!) terminal window. And type: steam steam://rungameid/439890 and press ENTER.


Wait maybe 10-20 seconds and then Steam should ask you if you want to install the game. I always confirm/OK this and let process start and then stop and uninstall the Download if I don't want to really install the game right now. In fact I didn't had enough disk space, so I got an error message from Steam.

But it worked! :-) To check this in Steam click on your Username in the top right corner.
>Account Details, and then >View licenses and product key activations Listed there I have the following new licenses: "HITMAN™ - Spring Pack Complimentary" and "HITMAN™ Free Trial Complimentary".

Was never interested in Hitman, but I never pass up free.

Use the commandline luke.

./steam.sh steam://install/439890


6.1GB download going on now, although funnily enough steam seems to think Hitman is also ready to play.

I plan to buy this but if they keep giving it away theres going to be nothing left to buy!

You can play Hitman even though not everything was downloaded. Was the same for me. Didn't regret the purchase. One of my favourites!

So, I'm confused, do you permanently get it as part of your Steam Library, or can you just download it during this free period?
