The game also introduces new ways to play with the "Sniper Assassin" mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series.

The former includes six new, meticulously designed locations; a variety of supplementary game modes; a panoply of weapons and disguises; and, for those who now own a copy of Season 1, the Hitman Legacy Pack.

As the Hitman 2 release date closes in, review scores have started to appear online.

It's worth mentioning that IO Interactive will also release a DLC Legacy Pack that will allow Hitman 2 owners to access all six original Hitman 2016 missions.

After a comical live action launch trailer featuring Sean Bean, IO Interactive has unleashed another Hitman 2 launch trailer.

Trump denies talking to new acting attorney general about Mueller investigation
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) wrote in a letter to Trump: "As an unconfirmed political appointee, Mr. One is simply by declining to continue to pay the investigators or attorneys working for the special counsel.


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 can not be retried. The game will feature a new setting for Agent 47 to track down and eliminate his targets in dynamic locations. So you're probably wondering, when does Hitman 2 release? Plus, there are definitely oddities to the presentation of Hitman 2 that suggest it was a little rushed out the door, but I can't fault the fact that it offers delicious, murderous fun right from the get go.

IO Interactive and Warner Bros. "Riley MacLeod [Full review] Eurogamer - No score" Hitman 2 is not the landmark the last game was, and given that it nearly didn't happen at all, with IO wresting back the rights from Square Enix at the eleventh hour, that's only to be expected.

In Hitman 2, Agent 47 embarks on a mission to hunt the elusive "Shadow Client" and unravel his militia once and for all. Considering how much turmoil there was behind the scenes, and how lucky the team is that Hitman 2 exists at all, I don't hold the lack of animated cutscenes against them in the slightest, but whether it was a stylistic choice or not, it didn't work for me. You'll end up doing this countless times throughout the campaign, but the seconds you'll waste waiting for the menu to load will begin to wear on you nearly immediately.

I can't stress enough how often the simple act of loading a save took me out of the game. For whatever reason, Hitman managed to avoid this pitfall in 2016, and two years later, Hitman 2 did as well. The Hitman games know when to hold your hand, and understand when to let you loose. But gamers wouldn't mind shelling out a few extra money as this version comes with an Expansion Pass, having more missions and locations.
