Hitman 2 lets you kill Sean Bean again

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.

"Elusive Targets" have been an important part of Hitman since the game was rebooted a few years ago. These individuals have contracts on their heads which you must fulfill. Sean Bean is a famous British actor and is known for being part of movies and shows where he dies horrific deaths. Well, players have the opportunity to kill Bean in Hitman 2.

Bean will take on the role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin. Notoriously known as "The Undying", Faba's reputation as a master of faking his own death is second to none, ultimately causing the International Contract Agency to put an imposing bounty on his head.

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.
