Warner Bros. Unveils Hitman 2

Sean Bean narrates our first look at Hitman 2 in today’s announcement trailer. And with it, the game’s body count is already at one. Sorry Bean, your track record with making it to the end of movies isn’t a good one.

Let’s take a look at Hitman 2.

The game’s Steam listing offers a few more details on the locales we’ll be visiting.

Travel the globe and track your targets across exotic sandbox locations in HITMAN 2. From sun-drenched streets to dark and dangerous rainforests, nowhere is safe from the world’s most creative assassin, Agent 47 in the ultimate spy thriller story.

Hitman 2 will also ditch the episodic structure in favor of the full game on day one. That episodic release from the last one kind of grew on me. I liked the focus on a single level and mastering it before the next mission dropped. Still, a full release is for the best. Let folks get their sixty bucks worth on day one.

But the content doesn’t stop at release. Io Interactive is already eying post-launch content.

Hitman 2 will take a stab at being this year’s big November game, as everyone else is tripping over each other to move in front of Red Dead Redemption 2’s October 26 release date. Agent 47 is circling November 13 for his return.

After the last Hitman, I’m all aboard this hype train. Just build on what made the last game awesome. We should hear much more about what Io Interactive has planned for Hitman 2 during E3 next week.
