Latest Hitman 2 trailer focuses on tactics and slapping foes with fish, preorder here

Today, Warner Bros. released a new Hitman 2 trailer which focuses on a variety of features coming to the game 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.

Aside from the features, the visuals are a standout aspect of the trailer. While they aren't radically different than the prequel, the improvement in terms of textures and lighting are noticeable. The game features Xbox One X enhancements which include "4K Ultra HD" resolution and "HDR10" support.

According to developer IO Interactive, 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.

Hitman 2 also introduces new ways to play with the "Sniper Assassin" mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series. Sniper Assassin is available to play now as an early-access bonus for consumers who preorder the standard, Gold, or Collector's Edition. Those who preorder the Gold or Collector's Edition can play the actual game four days early on November 9.
