Just as a reminder, Hitman 2 will become available on November 13 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Furthermore, it will feature cooperative play in Sniper Assassin Mode, a first for the franchise. Additional locations and environments include "sun-drenched streets" and a "dark, unsafe rainforest".
Meanwhile, the story tasks Agent 47 to eliminate the elusive Shadow Client in Miami and unravel his militia. However when Agent 47 "learns his target's true identity and the truth about his past, it changes everything" the description hints. Hitman 2 will also feature a co-op mode called Sniper Assassin that allows two friends to team up and take out specific targets online, which should boost engagement. We were all anxious and excited for IO Interactive a year ago when they announced that they had become an independent studio.
As an additional pre-order bonus, full game early access will be available for Gold or Collector's Edition owners four days before release. If you pre-order the silver, gold, or collector's editions, you'll be able to pick up the stand-alone Sniper Assassin co-op mode right away.
Welcome back 47! A new HITMAN 2 trailer shows off the game fans were waiting for. Today, the studio has revealed Hitman 2 which will be being published by Warner Bros. There will be "tons and tons of post-launch content".
The next installment in the Hitman series has been announced. Dedication to creating original IP and unforgettable characters and experiences are the hallmarks of IO Interactive.
We previously had an opportunity to sit down with IO Interactive/HITMAN Lead Writer Michael Vogt, a couple of episodes into the original HITMAN's release.
Hitman 2 has finally been announced! All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners.
