Hitman 2

Two years after spilling blood in 2016’s Hitman, IO Interactive’s chrome-domed assassin has returned for another round of contracts in Hitman 2, now available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PCs.

The latest entry in IO’s long line of sandbox murder simulators, Hitman 2 takes players on a tour of six exotic locations such as Hawke’s Bay (New Zealand), Miami (Florida/U.S.), Santa Fortuna (Colombia), Mumbai (India), Whittleton Creek (Vermont/U.S.) and the mysterious Isle of Sgàil (North Atlantic) as they stalk their prey in expansive living, breathing worlds.

“We’re thrilled to partner with the talented team at IO Interactive on the launch of Hitman 2 today,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment in a press release distributed this morning. “Hitman 2 has immersive gameplay, franchise-first game modes and a constant flow of free live content that is sure to excite the passionate fanbase, as well as new players.”

To celebrate the game’s release, the publisher has released a new trailer showcasing the game’s sprawling locales and the inventive weaponry Agent 47 will have at his disposal this time around. Check it out for yourself below:

Like its predecessor, Hitman 2 will feature special limited time Elusive Contracts, with the first of which being Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin brought to live by famed Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings actor Sean Bean. This mission, titled “The Undying,” will launch on November. 20 and will last for 14 days. In addition to the Elusive Contracts, Hitman 2 also introduces Ghost Mode. This 1v1 multiplayer challenge pits two players against each other as they attempt to assassinate the most targets more efficiently than their opponent.
