We all knew the announcement was coming, however, it’s fantastic to know for certain that Agent 47 is back. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that Hitman 2 will be releasing this year.
Not only did Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announce Hitman 2, but they also revealed the release date and a pre-order bonus for those that pre-order the game.
As we’ve come to expect from the series, Hitman 2 will feature “hyper-detailed sandboxes full of living, breathing environments.” Developers also suggested that environmental objects might play an even bigger (and deadlier) role this time around as anything can become a weapon of death. As with the previous game, the sequel will include multiple international locations although Miami will be at the centre of the game’s narrative. Agent 47 will be tasked with hunting down the Shadow Client and defeat his militia as we delve deeper into Agent 47 and Diana’s past.
As a Pre-order bonus those that pre-order the game will get access to the game’s newly introduced co-op mode called Sniper Assassin right now. The new mode allows a player to hunt down targets in solo mode or with a friend in co-op.
