Hitman: Absolution Online will not get an online pass, decision reversed by Square Enix
Hitman: Absolution was about to get an online pass which essentially means if you buy the game second hand, you gotta pay for the online component. They have also announced that the Contracts Mode which is something Square Enix is really hyping, will be free for everyone.
“We’d actually planned to have this mode accessible via a code in the game’s box, but we really want to make it available to anybody that plays the game – so we want to take a new approach,” a statement posted on their Tumblr read. (Via Eurogamer).
“If you’re in North America you’ll see the mode automatically appear in the game menu. If you’re elsewhere, you can redeem the code inside the box, or you can simply select the BUY CONTRACTS PASS option. From there, head to the store where CONTRACTS will be free to access.”
Our review for the game has gone live, and our author John has given a glowing score for it.
The game releases tomorrow for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
