Buying brand new games can get pretty expensive, and hardcore gamers who burn through games quickly will find themselves burning a hole in the wallets fairly quickly as well, which is why there still exists a market for pre-owned games which caters to gamers who don’t necessarily need to play the latest and greatest the moment it has been released. Now the good news is that if you were thinking about picking up Hitman: Absolution pre-owned and were worried that you might not be able to access Contracts because the online pass might have been used by its original owner, fret not as Square Enix has confirmed that they will be dispensing with the online pass system.
What this means for pre-owned game buyers is that if you were to pick up Hitman: Absolution secondhand, you’d still be able to access the game’s Contract Mode for free. In a statement Square Enix released to the folks at CVG, “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.”
