An agents advantage is not his body. It’s his mind.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today released the HITMAN™ Perfected Trailer, providing a 360-degree view of the numerous new features, game modes, upgrades and content coming to HITMAN™ 2.
Beginning with the dynamic world awaiting Agent 47, the trailer showcases six diverse locations, including Hawke’s Bay (New Zealand), Miami (U.S.), Santa Fortuna (Colombia), Mumbai (India), Whittleton Creek (U.S.) and the mysterious Isle of Sgàil (North Atlantic), all with unparalleled game depth, countless interactive possibilities and the absolute freedom to approach each mission your own unique way.
Players can also enjoy franchise-first multiplayer modes in the form of Ghost Mode, IO Interactive’s unique take on 1-versus-1 online competition, and Sniper Assassin, a standalone mode that brings a cooperative experience to the Hitman series for the first time, allowing two players to work together online to take down their targets. Additionally, HITMAN™ 2 will incorporate a variety of different upgrades and enhancements, including smarter combat A.I., a brand-new mini-map, security camera grids, picture-in-picture replays, an abundance of new tools, strategic use of mirrors, the ability to hide in crowds and foliage, the return of the fan-favourite briefcase and much more!
All of these new features will be included in HITMAN™ 2 at launch on 13th November, and the ever-expanding world of assassination will continue to grow with a consistent flow of post-launch live content via Elusive Targets, Escalations, Challenge Packs, Contracts and more. The first of numerous free live content updates will include the upcoming Elusive Target mission starring international actor Sean Bean, who will take on the role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin who is notoriously known as “The Undying” due his reputation as a master of faking his own death. Elusive Target No. 1 Starring Sean Bean, entitled The Undying, will release on 20th November, one week after HITMAN™ 2 launches on 13th November, and will run for a limited time. These missions are free for all players, allowing one chance to assassinate the target and if not successfully completed, the contract cannot be retried.
HITMAN™ 2 is the follow-up to the internationally acclaimed video game, HITMAN™. Featuring entirely new hyper-detailed sandbox locations full of living, breathing environments to explore, HITMAN™ 2 offers players the freedom to plan the ultimate assassination utilising an assortment of tools, weapons, disguises and a variety of stealth techniques to creatively trigger their own unique chain of events.
HITMAN™ 2 introduces new ways to play with the Sniper Assassin mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series for the first time, allowing two players to work together online to take down their targets. Sniper Assassin is available to play now as an early access bonus for consumers who pre-order the HITMAN™ 2.
