Hitman 2 teaches you how to think like an assassin

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 released a new trailer which focuses on the mindset of an assassin. Warner Bros said, "This latest video shows players how to think like an assassin by mastering the art of stealth and avoiding detection in Hitman 2." By utilizing the map and picture-in-picture feature, gamers can track victims in real-time. There are a number of new tools available to players so that they can execute the perfect kill. The prequel was more about spotting and following your target, this time around you're completely in control.

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 or Collector's Edition can play the game on November 9.
