Actor Sean Bean Shows How “The World is Always Your Best Weapon” in HITMAN™ 2 Launch Trailer
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today released the Official HITMAN™ 2 Launch Trailer, starring international actor Sean Bean. In the new live-action trailer, Bean discusses the importance of creativity and improvisation to a true assassin, while showcasing a variety of unassuming items that can be utilised as deadly weapons in HITMAN™ 2. From rubber duck explosives and transistor radios to kitchenware and flamingo costumes, the world is truly your weapon. And no one knows this better than the masterful Agent 47, who makes an inconspicuous appearance towards the end of the video with a deadly surprise for Mr. Bean.

Bean will also star in the first Elusive Target mission for HITMAN™ 2, taking on the in-game role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin who is notoriously known as “The Undying” due to his reputation as a master of faking his own death. Elusive Target No. 1 Starring Sean Bean, entitled The Undying, will release on November 20, one week after HITMAN™ 2 launches on November 13, and will run for a limited time.
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 utilise 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 utilising 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 the Sniper Assassin mode, a standalone feature 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. Sniper Assassin is available to play now as an early access bonus for consumers who pre-order the HITMAN™ 2. Players can also enter the HITMAN™: Sniper Assassin Competition and put their marksman skills to the ultimate test for a chance to win the grand prize of getting their name and likeness included in future HITMAN™ 2 content. For more information, visit: https://hitman.com/competition.
HITMAN™ 2 will feature a unique and brand-new take on 1-versus-1 multiplayer competition with Ghost Mode. Players will put their assassination skills to the ultimate test as they compete against each other online, both as Agent 47, to assassinate the most targets faster and cleaner than their opponent, while utilising weapons, items, outfits and ghost crate supply drops to help accomplish the overall mission.
HITMAN™ 2 will be available for PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 4 Pro, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and PC beginning November 13, 2018.
