Instead of waiting for the show to start - and the inevitable deluge of announcements that comes with it - the Hitman developer beat the crowd by releasing the announcement trailer for Hitman 2 earlier today. And if your fingers are already twitching in excitement, know you don't have to wait too long because Hitman 2 will be available globally on November 13 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Furthermore, it will feature cooperative play in Sniper Assassin Mode, a first for the franchise.
"We are very proud to announce HITMAN 2 as the next exciting chapter in our ever-expanding world of assassination". Hitman 2 appears to be a traditional release following the episodic nature of Hitman 2016.
There will be a change in scenery as well, with players getting the chance to travel to various exotic locations featuring "hyper-detailed sandboxes" such as "dark and risky rainforests", and Miami during a motorsport race. We couldn't have wished for a better partner than Warner Bros.to bring this game to our passionate community and introduce new players to our universe.
Hitman 2 takes players on a global adventure across a mix of bustling worldwide locations, including a vibrant Miami setting with the colorful ambiance of an in-progress motorsport race bringing a new backdrop to the series.
Hitman 2 stars Agent 47 as he goes after the Shadow Client. However when Agent 47 "learns his target's true identity and the truth about his past, it changes everything" the description hints.
Players who pre-order Hitman 2 can get instant access to Sniper Assassin. But, keep in mind that those who pre-purchase the Gold or Collector's Editions will get to play the game four days earlier than everyone else.
