I doubt Contracts will come to Steam. It is available in the Hitman Trilogy. I suggest you purchase that, as you get Hitman 2, and Blood Money, and you don't have to use Steam to play them.

Then you didn't play them right. They're just as good.

Apparently, Contracts isn't on Steam because the copyright for the song in "Rendezvouz in Rotterdam" wasn't able to be renewed.

Wow, that really sucks. Contracts is a good game. Not as good as SA, but still pretty good.

Is it really that hard to replace a single song?

This should not be legal. I mean you can't sell a whole game because of this? If you license your song for a game, you should have to give rights to that song in whatever form the game takes in it's lifetime.

I think this is complete BS, we are protecting an individual's right to be a selfish a-hole, that is a right people shouldn't have.

In essence, no one wants to pay for it.

Just listened to the song on YouTube and it sucks anyways!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwLOmgE1BVg

If you guys wanna see this game get on Steam start emailing this stupid band and tell them whats up and start email IO support demanding the game on Steam and telling them if its copyright issues just remove the stupid song!

Song: "Immortal" by the rock band Clutch.
Location: In the mission "Rendezvous in Rotterdam"

Band Links:

http://www.myspace.com/clutchband
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clutch_%28band%29
http://www.pro-rock.com/index.cfm (main site)

Emails:

Clutch - management@pro-rock.com
IO - ioi@ioi.dk
Edios Support - http://support.eidosinteractive.com/index.php


I'm gonna start emailing these people every damn week till I hear something. Contracts is like the best game of them all its ridiculous not having it on Steam. Please start doing it to and maybe something will get done...

Blood Money was good, but so was Contracts.

The first two though weren't that enjoyable, as while i liked Silent Assasin but after the sequels came out, it now feels incredibly limited and clunky for some reason.

I like not having to deal with discs... so, even though I bought 3 of the games.. I would like the collection on steam... but I really don't want to buy it if it's not the collection... if it's missing a game, it's not The Hitman Collection.. it's more like A Hitman Selection.

I don't remember how the track was integrated to the level, obviously not a CD track cos that would have been quick to replace.. although, from some other games I have seen that often no updates are made to old games on steam, unlike another great game download site which is also DRM free but always make sure their releases work properly on latest hardware...
Beyond Good and Evil for example, though a great game, is so buggy on current systems...

So anyway, the rant is basically getting to the point that I think they're just gonna be too lazy to sort this out for us.

No, you should get whatever the contract was for.

Haven't you ever watched a TV series on DVD that had had all the music replaced (The State being the most infamous, with all music replaced). Or that Stairway to Heaven joke in Wayne's World that only makes sense in the theater because if you watch it at home they're NOT playing Stairway?
