Sean Bean to Star in Hitman 2

Actor Sean Bean is the Undying and it makes him a perfect fit for being an Elusive Target in upcoming Hitman 2.

Upcoming stealth action-adventure game Hitman 2 from developer IO Interactive and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is less than a month away from releasing on November 13, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Videos regarding gameplay and various modes are being dropped every now and then to reveal more about the game to players. One of the most recent revelations came out to be the inclusion of actor Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Oath) in the game as an Elusive Target.

Watch the actor monologue throughout the new live-action trailer as an in-game character that came up on the hit list of Agent 47.




The character Sean plays here is named Mark Faba, who is known as a man of many lives and deaths because of his trait of faking his own death too many times, which eventually earned him the nickname of "The Undying".

Faba is a former MI5 agent who went rogue and become a freelance assassin, who is now a target for the protagonist. He will be visiting the Global Innovation Race event in Miami, to complete his own contract and probably meet his demise there.

A week before the release of the game, the Undying will be added as the first Elusive Target on November 20 available only for a limited time, which is still undisclosed and can be ranging from either 48 hours to a whole week.

Serving as an Elusive Target that would most likely die perfectly resonates with Bean as most of the character he plays on movie or TV ultimately ends up dying and over his three decade long career, we saw him die over and over in different ways, too many times.

This particular news of Sean Bean appearing in the latest Hitman game would make many movie goers and avid fans of television series very happy. On top of that, the whole trailer was a one man show narrated by Sean himself.

However, this is not his first time and those who keep track of all of his works on different media know that Sean has previously worked on video game projects like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Sid Meier's Civilization VI.

A brand-new trailer explores the untold journeys of World War II from Battlefield V single player War Stories.

After an unexpected delay of release and one of their major competitor first-person shooter title Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 being released, developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts are trying to hype up the fans for upcoming Battlefield V.

Although they claimed to have delayed the release of the game to further develop the newly introduced Tides of War mode, there are more things to be excited about. One such aspect is War Stories, which features the game's single-player campaign.

The story of Nordlys features a young resistance fighter that is set on 1943, during German occupation as she makes an ultimate sacrifice to save her family and her journey carries a weight not lesser than the weapons and ammo she carries around.

Tirailleur is centered on high-intensity warfare of Senegalese units from the French Colonial Forces and Under No Flag follows the journey of a young British criminal who tasked to blow up German air bases in North Africa, which he messed up badly.

Apparently, Battlefield 5 will play out the part of single player story quite differently than their World War I themed previous FPS title Battlefield 1. Vehicular combat is highlighted in both air and sea set on different locations during the conflict.

Most of the gameplay elements will go hand-in-hand with the multiplayer mode of the game. Meanwhile, watch actor Mark Strong (Shazam!, Kingsman: The Secret Service) lending voice for the story trailer and even dropping F-Bombs to make sure that players stick to their playing objective without deviating.

Despite facing issues like historical accuracy, a controversy of using female characters that led to a social media stir that probably led to poor pre-order sales, Battlefield V still remains one of 2018's biggest titles regardless of what anyone else thinks about it.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Mod Adds Bowsette

After conquering the internet and Bowser's castle, Bowsette arrives on Hyrule in the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Mod.

The world of video games is not out of Bowsette craze just yet that started a few weeks back from a fan comic on DeviantArt. Courtesy of a fan-created mod, we already saw Bowsette as the final boss in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Don't think for a second that it stopped there, because after invading Bowser's castle, the Bowser-Princess Peach hybrid is now arriving on the mythical kingdom of Hyrule though a mod in action-adventure game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is still under development.

If you are still scratching your head thinking who we are talking about here then you must have been asleep the past few weeks when this new phenomenon called Bowsette made her debut and took down the internet by storm as well as major porn sites.

Back in September, Nintendo introduced a new character Toadette in the Deluxe Edition of New Super Mario Bros. U, who could turn into a Princess Peach lookalike character with her unique features named Peachette by picking up the Super Crown.

RELATED: Dark Souls 3 Mod Forces of Annihilation Out Now

What followed after this is that she became a hot topic trending everywhere and now she has come out of Super Mario Bros. universe to explore the domains of Hyrule as independent modder Lynard Killer decided to bring her in Breath of the Wild.

Although s not yet downloadable, interested viewers are encouraged to keep an eye on its page on GameBanana along with a few other mods for display. As for the one we are talking about, it is made with incredible precision within the boundaries he worked on.

Though it's not an actual PC game but this video of Bowsette replacing former hero Link in Breath of the Wild is a breath of fresh air for sure.




RELATED: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Wins Game of The Year at DICE Awards

This new iteration of Bowsette tries to justice to the character and adds her noticeable attributes like a black dress, Bowser horns, spiked choker and of course the Super Crown while toning down the lewd elements that has been driving people nuts.

The character design and voice swap for her seems really good and nicely complements to the game's artistic surroundings. Aside from carrying her uniqueness, she wields a flaming sword in battle and the black attire she wears can go up in smoke if it catches fire, according to the included dress physics.

Even though Nintendo remains unfazed about their massive fan community hyping over a non-canonical character, people are getting more and more obsessed with her. It probably hurt them much if they at least appreciate the creativity among their fans for once for coming out with such new ideas.

Seeing the newly reformed crossover version of Bowser in a kingdom-saving role will probably inspire the modding communities to do more work like this and left the fans wondering what else will we be seeing her next, because if this continues, the possibilities are limitless.

Injustice 2 Scrapped Character Concept Art Revealed

New unused character designs of John Constantine, Krypto the Superdog and Penguin for the game revealed by Injustice 2 concept artist.

Following their immense success with 2013's fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios came up with a sequel, Injustice 2 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017, that even surpassed its predecessor in many aspects.

The game has a roster full of iconic DC Comics characters as playable fighters as well as other heroes like Hellboy from Dark Horse Comics and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from IDW Publishing. Recently, a number of unused concept arts have revealed a few characters that didn't make it to the final roster.

Shared on ArtStation by senior concept artist Justin Murray, these min-blowing artworks of the characters from Injustice comic books has Batman's protege Bluebird, Detective ChimpEtrigan the DemonJohn Constantine, Krypto the Superdog and Penguin.

During the story arc in comics, they have either sided with The Regime and The Insurgency or chose their own way but there was no apparent reason for excluding them from the game. However, we didn't wait for any official statement and have our own theory on it.

For one, neither Detective Chimp nor Penguin is a competitive fighter who can give other playable characters a tough time. Even occult detective John Constantine is no physical combatant despite him being a highly skilled sorcerer.

Young vigilante hero Bluebird on the other hand could've made it but considering other better-known costumed fighters like Batgirl and Zatanna didn't made it to the sequel, this electrical engineer from Batman comics introduced during the run of Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman – My Own Worst Enemy, Batman – Court of the Owls) had slim chances.

Another plausible reason for these characters not to show up in Injustice 2 maybe because many of them ended up dying in the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic-book series, thus their presence in the game could have been tricky for the storyline to connect.

Etrigan The Demon lost his connection to mortal realm when Jason Blood, his human host was killed in a battle against The Regime. Although John Constantine didn't die after his rebellion of magic community took a stand opposing Superman, he simply left the conflict.

The original publisher for the Mortal Kombat series, NetherRealm Studios may strongly consider another sequel to the Injustice franchise and these characters can even show up in that game if they are somehow brought back to the tie-in comic-books.

According to some recent rumor flying around, the studio is already working on a new project and it can either be a new installment for Mortal Kombat or Injustice 3, which we can only tell for sure once we get some more evidence on hand.

Noteworthy mentions of weapons are bolt-action rifle, carbine repeater, cattleman revolver, double-action revolver, pump-action shotgun, sawed-off shotgun, sniper rifle, Springfield rifle and varmint rifle. Aside from their unique types, variety of ammo can significantly alter the effect of a shot on a target.

Depending on your situation at hand, some weapons can particularly come in handy than the others. For example, when you are riding a horse, the double-action revolver will be a good shot. In a close range combat sawed-off shotgun is the best choice for firepower.

When hunting a small game, varmint rifle is what you need for not causing much damage to the meat and skin of your prey. In general, all types of rifle can be fitted with scopes to leave it up to player's choice whether they want regular or scoped aiming.

The key objective is to earn five points by taking out randomly chosen targets before the other player does. Two assassins will share the same location in separate realities and you can always see everything your opponent is doing as a Ghost version.

As soon as your rival terminates a target, you time window gets shortened to make a kill of your own to balance the score. You shouldn't panic for the ongoing countdown timer on screen and go on a killing spree of non-targets, because that will only blow up your cover and decrease the score.

Instead, try to turn the table on the challenger by taking a first hit on a target before they do. Ghost Mode also demands that you put emphasis on being smart rather than quick as you will start out with limited resources and you have to make the most of it before you find a Ghost Crate with selective items.
