Hitman 2 is launching this coming Tuesday, November 13th, providing six new sandboxes for our disguise-loving bald friend to murder folks in. Early reviews are out and looking strong, the benefit this time being we won’t have to wait for episodes to roll out piecemeal, it’s an all-in-one, ahem, hit.
Anyway, with the release right around the corner, that, of course, means it’s launch trailer time for Hitman 2. Cue plenty of stylish slow-mo shots, a few peeks at the gorgeous and labyrinthine new levels, and the tantalising prospect of Sean Bean dying, yet again.
Yep, good old Sean will be the first Elusive target. “Elusive Target missions are unique, high-stakes contracts that are free for all players, allowing one chance to assassinate the target and if not successfully completed, the contract cannot be retried,” explains IO Interactive. “Elusive Target No. 1 Starring Sean Bean will release on 20th November and will run for 14 days. Once Elusive Target No. 1 is available, players must stop Mark Faba (a.k.a. Sean Bean) before he can utilise his expert surveillance, infiltration and demolition skills to complete a contract at the Global Innovation Race event in Miami, and if anyone can take down Faba for the last time, it’s Agent 47.”
Fingers crossed we should have some Hitman 2 benchmarks and assorted goodies coming your way shortly, but in the meantime be sure to check out the Hitman 2 game page where you can see the final PC system requirements and estimated frames per second performance.
Hitman 2 is out on November 13th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
