Agent 47 is back to bring the pain in Hitman 2, and this time he’s getting even more creative with his assassinations.
Hitman 2 was revealed with a trailer Thursday ahead of E3 showing the infamous bald assassin sabotaging a racing car to make it spin out and kill the driver, leaving onlookers none the wiser. It showcases just how many their ways to take out targets’ in the Hitman series’ inventive sandbox-style levels.
It’s bigger and deadlier than before.
The announcement arrives just a day after the title leaked, so this was likely meant to be an E3 surprise. Hitman 2 will take players to a fresh sandbox full of new weapons, locations, targets, and tools to plan their perfect assassination. The game’s trailer looks like it is taking everything that worked in the last Hitman title and just adding on to the formula.
Here’s a look at the official announcement trailer…
Hitman 2‘s story picks up immediately after the events of the first game, and the entire main story will be available on day one of release. Agent 47 and Diana are set on a course to find the Shadow Client.
One of the first locations you’ll visit is to a “a vibrant Miami setting,” “an in-progress motorsport race." (Let me tell us this, you can interact with and even influence the race.) How can we forget about the “dangerous rainforests,”.
Your targets are named Robert and Sierra Knox (Sorry for the spoilers!!).
Along with the classic gameplay that the series is known for, there will also be a new mode called Sniper Assassin that allows you to team up with other players for co-op missions.
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 can also be enjoyed in a single player mode for those who want to play as Agent 47.”
And if your fingers are already twitching in excitement, know you don’t have to wait too long because Hitman 2 will be available globally on November 13 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
