What is HITMAN 2?
HITMAN 2 is the action sequel follow up to the 2016 reboot HITMAN, which sees Agent 47 return to take down targets as he travels the globe. Like the original game Agent 47 will have access to a number of tools at his disposal such as rubber ducks, disposable scramblers, tasers and more! Travel to new locations including Miami, Columbia and other places. Tackle the missions as you see fit with the huge sandbox levels allowing players to eliminate their targets in a number of ways, and giving opportunities to being creative with how you decide to complete the levels. You'll also be able to replay the levels to find new challenges and try out new tactics which will reward unlock new rewards, starting points and perks.
This time around the game will deliver all the Episodes at once, rather than over time as the previous game did which gives more content to the player at launch. There's also the online Sniper Assassin Mode that offers up an alternative way to play the game with challenges that can be completed against players from around the globe. And for the first time in the series HITMAN 2 adds the Ghost Multiplayer Mode that allows 2 players to go head to head as they see who the best assassin is.
If that wasn't enough the game also includes the HITMAN 2016 levels and content for all owners of the original, with remastered versions of Paris, Sapienza, Marrakesh, Bangkok, Colorado and Hokkaido. They'll also include brand new features from HITMAN 2 such as a new progression system, new gameplay items, a picture in picture mode, new difficulty levels, improved A.I. and much more.
