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.
Today, developer IO Interactive detailed the progression and difficulty systems in the game. The main points are summarized below.
- The progression system is centered around mastering locations. As you level up the "Mastery" track for each location, you unlock starting locations, agency pickups, and new items that give you new options to take on each mission in new ways.
- "Performance XP" is a new system and acts as a second avenue to accumulate experience points.
- Hitman 2 has three difficulty levels: "Casual", "Professional", and "Master."
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. It's available right now if you've preordered the game.
Those who preorder the Gold or Collector's editions can also play Hitman 2 on November 9. The Collector's Edition features Agent 47's iconic briefcase and other items like a dapper rubber duck. However, it also has a price tag to match.
