Hitman Issue
rapakiv commented on 17 February 2017 at 7:23 pm UTC

Hitman just came out in our so much beloved platform.
Having previously bought the game, took advantage of the sale and the release on linux to buy the DLC missions.
Download the 40 something GB, Start the game ...


Failed to start game (missing executable)

I believe the a tried everything possible, just to mention, verify cache, game integrity, start by the command line, delete and download again and again. Searched the web and not much to see about, everybody playing except me

Am I the only one with this issue? Also noticed that seem to be not possible to install episode 1 Paris!!!

Any help would be apreciated

One thing I would try is to go in to the folder and delete a couple of files, also look to see if there is a game executable there and if so delete it. Then verify all game files.

Also this should probably be posted in tech help.

You seem to be in the same situation as MadVillain in the other thread. Bought the game before and then the extra DLC now and no executable. So something wrong on the Steam end. Somehow the game and DLC are not linked or whatever.
Contact Feral and/or Steam support.

There only two folders inside, bonus content and share folder, no executable of any kind


Thanks, seem the way to go

I'm facing the exact same problem. Missing executable.

I believe that the issue lies in, Linux version is missing from steam pre-order packages
