Updated November 13, 2018: Hitman 2 is now available for everyone, even those who purchased the Silver or Standard Edition.
Recently, Warner Bros. announced that Hitman 2 would launch on Xbox One and other platforms on November 13, 2018. In order to become the perfect assassin, you have to blend into the crowd, exploit the environment, and trick numerous opponents. Each decision has a consequence, so the more "invisible" you are, the smoother a mission will go.
If you purchase the Hitman 2: Gold Edition, you can start playing it right now. While this version costs $99.99 before tax, it does come with a lot of perks. The game also features an Expansion Pass which promises more missions and locations down the line.
In Hitman 2, Agent 47 embarks on a mission to hunt the elusive "Shadow Client" and unravel his militia once and for all. However, when he learns the hidden truth about his past, nothing will ever be the same. The game also introduces new ways to play with the "Sniper Assassin" mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series.
In our review, we said, "IO Interactive set out to perfect the assassination sandbox with Hitman 2. Though the studio fell short, Hitman 2 is a commendable stealth experience that fans of the series shouldn't miss out on. Its future now rests in whether or not its Ghost Mode and celebrity elusive targets can hold people's attention."
