The HITMAN: Summer Pack lets you download and play Episode 3 for a limited time

wolfyrionTo install it you simply type at your browser (at address bar) --> steam://install/440930
I think that it will work or you can go to --> https://steamdb.info/app/440930/ and press Install

That works but still doesn't invalidate my previous posts.

I'll take that back. It downloads but doesn't install, the content is locked.
Then contact Steam support? Not much we can do here if it just doesn't work.

mylkadoes this game use vulkan? in the preferences file is this line
<value name="UseVulkan" type="integer">1</value>
No, that is not a supported option.

There's a play for free button on the main store page (i own it all and see it) - what happens if you press that?

JaromirAfter playing episode 1 and 2 for free, I wanted to buy the remaining episodes. But it seems like you can't buy specific episodes for Linux. Or did I miss something?
You can. The list is here: https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/4854/HITMAN__Game_of_The_Year_Edition/

When companies bundle stuff up, you need to hit the Bundle Info button on the store page, which gives you the individual list.

popeySadly it doesn't work. The loading screen / menu appears. I can launch into a new game. But textures don't load. So the initial video of you on the plane is just a white screen. Then when you have to swim there's blue / black / white blotches. Like this. https://imgur.com/a/fIoopdR

Will make a note of this.

Humble Store is doing a 'Pixel Perfect Platformers Sale' and it has some top Linux games for cheap

Doktor_MandrakeHow could you leave out oddworld in that list? how could you?
Unsure how it is now, but last time I tried gamepad support on Linux was awful which ends up being a deal-breaker for me in such games. They did numerous updates to it though, so it's likely improved but didn't have time to test.
I had the same problem the first time I tried, but I gave it another go and completed the game around Christmas last year. I don't recall having trouble with the controls this time. Fun platformer, if you can handle a bit of trial and error. Well worth the sale price.
Good to hear, I noticed it in my original release post on it and still recommended it for keyboard controls. Glad to hear it seems to work now with gamepads though
