New Hitman 2 trailer details elusive targets like Sean Bean

Warner Bros. released Hitman 2 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.

Today, Warner Bros. and IO Interactive released a new trailer providing the latest intel on how to prepare for the first "Elusive Target" coming to Hitman 2. Elusive Target are unique missions that give you one chance to assassinate the target. The first one, titled "The Undying," stars Sean Bean as former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin, Mark Faba, who is notoriously known as a master of faking his own death. According to the teams, this contract will be open from November 20 through December 4, 2018, so players will only have one chance to successfully take out Bean during this period. Completing this contact will unlock a special exploding pen.

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.

In our review, we said, "IO Interactive set out to perfect the assassination sandbox with Hitman 2. Though the studio fell short, Hitman 2 is a commendable stealth experience that fans of the series shouldn't miss out on. Its future now rests in whether or not its Ghost Mode and celebrity elusive targets can hold people's attention."
