Play through Dubai in Hitman 3 for free starting today


Hitman 3, the end of IO Interactive’s trilogy of Hitman titles, is filled with stunning vistas. The game has players travel the world as Agent 47, taking down targets in gorgeous settings. From the neon, rain-soaked streets of Chongqing to the elegant manor at Dartmoor, there’s no shortage of beautiful locales. Now, even if you don’t have the game you can explore one of its most visually impressive levels. The Hitman 3 Free Starter Pack launched today, and with it, so did a limited-time trial of the game’s Dubai map.

To play through Dubai in Hitman 3, you’ll need to jump through some hoops. First, you’ll have to download the Hitman 3 Free Starter Pack off of the Epic Games Store. This pack lets players explore the World of Assassination trilogy for free and comes with two locations, the ICA Facility and Hawke’s Bay. Those are the first locations in both Hitman and Hitman 2, so it’s sensible that the first from Hitman 3, Dubai, would make an appearance.

That being said, Dubai won’t be in the Hitman 3 Free Starter Pack for very long. The map is part of a limited-time deal and will be available from March 30 to April 5.

More bonuses from the starter pack

Even without access to Dubai, the Hitman 3 Free Starter Pack seems like a pretty sweet deal. According to a release from IO Interactive, the content currently included in it is just the beginning. “Over time, we’ll add more free content from the World of Assassination for a limited time,” reads the statement. “Whether it’s a full location or an Elusive Target, there’ll be new challenges waiting for you.” It’s just as well that anything that’s free in the starter pack will also be free in the full release of the game. For Hitman 3 owners, that means that Hawke’s Bay is currently available.
