Updated November 9, 2018: Hitman 2 only runs at native 4K on Xbox One X, the PlayStation 4 Pro version comes in at 1440p, which results in a blurry presentation on 4K displays.
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.
As with every "AAA" game nowadays, gamers want to know what the frame rate and resolution is on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. While the PlayStation 4 Pro figure wasn't revealed, Digital Foundry confirmed that Hitman 2 runs at native 4K resolution on Microsoft's new console. The outlet said, "John Linneman goes in-depth with an extended look at the new visual features on display in Hitman 2 as seen on Xbox One X at native 4K. Powered by IO Interactive's Glacier 2 Engine, Hitman 2 offers an impressive upgrade over the 2016 reboot so be sure to check it out." You can also unlock the frame rate to 60 FPS if you want, but it doesn't run that well.
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.
Hopefully Hitman 2 will be a worthy successor when it launches in a few weeks. Those who order the special editions can play it a few days early.
