Hitman 2 takes you to Colombian ruins and coca fields
Agent 47 is back and stealthier than ever.
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 personalities. Each decision has a consequence, so the more "invisible" you are, the smoother the mission will go.
Today, the publisher revealed the game's Colombian location after teasing it a few weeks ago. The Santa Fortuna area is an exotic setting with lush vegetation and even more opportunities to kill your enemies in creative ways. It's apparently located in the heart of the Colombian rainforest, and introduces areas like a native village, caves, ruins, and coca fields. You'll be going against a cartel it seems.
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 Gold Edition (opens in new tab) or Collector's Edition can play the game on November 9. There's also a collector's edition (opens in new tab) available which features Agent 47's iconic briefcase and other items like a dapper rubber duck.
