New HITMAN 2 Video Explains How to Prepare for Elusive Target #1 Starring Sean Bean, Launching Nov. 20

by

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today released a new video providing the latest intel on how to prepare for the first Elusive Target coming to HTIMAN 2. Elusive Target No. 1, entitled The Undying, will star international actor Sean Bean as former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin, Mark Faba, who is notoriously known as a master of faking his own death. This contract will be open from Nov. 20 through Dec. 4 so players will only have one chance to successfully take out The Undying during this 14-day period. And by playing the Elusive Target mission and completing the Explosive Penmanship challenge, gamers can unlock the new, fan-selected Explosive Pen weapon and add to their inventory.

Elusive Target missions are unique, high-stakes contracts that are free for all players, allowing one chance to assassinate the target and if not successfully completed, the contract cannot be retried. Once Elusive Target No. 1 is available, players must stop Mark Faba (a.k.a. Sean Bean) before he can utilize his expert surveillance, infiltration and demolition skills to complete a contract at the Global Innovation Race event in Miami, and if anyone can take down Faba for the last time, it’s Agent 47.

HITMAN 2 is the follow-up to the internationally acclaimed video game, HITMAN. Featuring entirely new hyper-detailed sandbox locations full of living, breathing environments to explore, HITMAN 2 offers players the freedom to plan the ultimate assassination utilizing an assortment of tools, weapons, disguises and a variety of stealth techniques to creatively trigger their own unique chain of events.

HITMAN 2 introduces new ways to play with Sniper Assassin, a standalone mode that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series for the first time, allowing two players to work together online to take down their targets.  HITMAN 2 also features a unique and brand-new take on 1-versus-1 multiplayer competition with Ghost Mode, allowing players to put their assassination skills to the ultimate test while competing against each other online, both as Agent 47. 

HITMAN 2 is available now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and PC.
