IO Interactive has cleared up the confusion surrounding Hitman content moving forward from Hitman 2 into Hitman 3 caused by Hitman 3's Epic Store exclusivity. An update to the Hitman 3 Pre-Launch Guide notes that "We are continuing to work on a solution with our partners to allow PC players who own HITMAN 1 or HITMAN 2 to import locations from those games into HITMAN 3 at no additional cost," they said.

What does an architect think of Cyberpunk 2077's Night City?

So much of the work that went into Cyberpunk 2077 is in world design, the sprawling city itself, and the massive buildings that make  it up.

Classic video game stuff, really.

Path of Exile's wild new Echoes of the Atlas expansion, the one that turns its endgame into a vast interdimensional fight club, has triggered the biggest wave of players logged into the game since its 2013 launch.

That's only a fraction of the playerbase, however—Path of Exile also has a standalone client available directly from developer Grinding Gear Games.
