Hitman 2 features remastered locations from prequel, free for existing owners

Recently, Warner Bros. announced that Hitman 2 should 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 personalities. Each decision has a consequence, so the more "invisible" you are, the smoother the mission will go.

The Hitman reboot which launched in 2016 features numerous environments, and many gamers were wondering if they could replay some of these scenarios in Hitman 2. Today at Gamescom 2018, Warner Bros. revealed the "Hitman Legacy Pack" which lets you do just that. All six locations – Paris, Sapienza, Marrakesh, Bangkok, Colorado, and Hokkaido – will be accessible as DLC. The arenas incorporate various new features from Hitman 2, like a new progression system, additional foliage and crowds, and picture-in-picture mode.

The Hitman Legacy Pack will be available to owners of the previous game for free. Head of developer IO Interactive Hakan Abrak added, "We have been through an amazing journey with our fans and community and are extremely proud of the continued love and support. This is our way to say a big thank you and give something back. We have finally revealed our long-term vision to deliver the World of Assassination, an ever-expanding continuous universe starting from Paris in Season 1, going all the way through to the end of Hitman 2 and beyond with our future endeavors."

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. Those who preorder the Hitman 2: Gold Edition or Hitman 2: Collector's Edition can play the game on November 9.
