We were starting to miss Agent 47, best known for his role in the Hitman games, and low and behold, just yesterday, ‘Hitman 2’ was announced to the world with a magnificent and riveting announcement trailer to quench your thirst to kill! After many months of waiting, we finally learned that the game is being released for PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 13th, 2018.
This game will continue Agent 47’s story, which left us on a cliffhanger at the end of the 2016 release of ‘Hitman’ as 47 moves on in his hunt for the elusive Shadow Client. As expected, it’s being developed by IO Interactive, and published by Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment, who acquired IO Interactive after Square Enix dropped them last year. With six new exotic locations for the most prolific assassin in gaming history to hone his craft, and more ways to kill your targets than ever before, we think this one’s gonna be a fun one. Oh joy! Let’s see the latest trailer for ‘Hitman 2’, so strap on your seatbelt, because you’re going to need it.
From the looks of it, our first assignment is at a motorsport race course in Miami, where you’ll be instructed to assassinate racing driver Sierra Knox and her father, Robert Knox. The game boasts that its locations go even further to “sun drenched streets and dark and dangerous rainforests.”
This game will also feature new game modes, such as the new ‘Sniper Assassin’ mode that features cooperative multiplayer for two player fun (a first in the franchise’s history), which you can check out on this new ‘Sniper Assassin’ trailer! It’s time to steady the scope and pull the trigger.
Pretty great stuff, right? We also finally get to see some other agents of the ICA doing their jobs like Agent 47 does (another franchise first). However, two players is not entirely necessary, as you can blow people’s heads off from long range in your secret hideaway with your trusted sniper rifle all on your own, which means that you’re going to have just as much fun doing it in the true spirit of Agent 47, as we’d come to expect.
But, the fun doesn’t stop there, as the city of Miami is getting a big cameo in the new Hitman game, with crisp water and palm trees becoming your domain, not to mention all the burnt rubber up in the air, making this a deadly combination as this next trailer shows us with its wonderful graphics, but in the end, leaves you yearning for more. Let’s take a look!
So, what’s left to do in exploring this hotly anticipated new game? Well, how about this ‘Hitman 2: Sniper Assassin’ gameplay walkthrough by GameRiot, to give you a better idea of what you can come to expect from the latest instalment of the franchise.
This looks like a real killer of a game for Hitman fans, both new and old, so load up your guns and get the piano wire ready, because ‘Hitman 2’ arrives on November 13th of this year. Pre-Order your copy here from the official pre-order website.
