Hitman 2 Live-Action Launch Trailer

Hitman 2 official live-action launch trailer brings back Sean Bean as elusive target Mark Faba, "The Undying".

The release of Hitman 2 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as an upcoming rebooted sequel from the stealth video game series Hitman from developer IO Interactive and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive is only a week away, on 13 November 2018.

So far, the game looks impressive and it comes with a lot of improvements to gameplay elements. A trailer is just released to celebrate the launch of the game and with that actor Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Oath) returns to play an in-game character.

The role Sean is playing in the game is of an Elusive Target named Mark Faba but he is mostly known to people as "The Undying". In the previous trailer, he came for a therapy session and opened up about his life before shooting down the counselor, revealing him to be an assailant sent to kill him.

He now explains that a true assassin doesn't need a silencer pistol or a hidden blade, instead he should use his head to become the master of his craft. He then shows using a rubber ducky as a detonator and toilet flush as a distraction noise for others.

To be innovative while on work you can take a weird disguise by wearing a huge mascot suit and then use a big fish, boat, a frying pan, a steel pipe or propane tank to hit your target. Electrocuting them is not off the table as well.

As he was closing his statement and takes a sip of his drink, it is implied that he was served by the silent killer protagonist who purposefully spilled poison in the glass previously. He then goes outside blending into the crowd after changing into his work dress.

On a lighter note, the actor opened up with UNILAD Gaming about his experience to become the elusive target Mark Faba in Hitman 2 and you shouldn't miss it.

Considering how every character Sean Bean ever plays always end up dying, his role as "The Undying" is quite a pun here. Because, not only is he going down one way or another, he hinted to bite the dust pretty easily according to what the trailer suggests.

The game is a follow up to Hitman from 2016, which stated to revamp the whole franchise but the lead, Agent 47 remains the same in his role. You can pre-order from the Standard, Silver, Gold or Collector's Edition of the game if you haven't already.

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.

Ghost Mode puts you and your opponent to go after same targets and execute your kills quickly and smoothly than your competitor. Both of you will start from same point and then will progress onwards on your own to secure kills for points.

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.

There is also a Sniper Assassin game mode in Hitman 2 that will be available from the release for everyone. This is a very first online co-op mode on Hitman franchise where players are to complete sniper mission and pre-ordering the game gets you an early access.

Agent 47 will return once again to take on missions of wiping out high-profile valued targets while hunting for the Shadow Client. In doing so, he will be travelling from Miami to Colombia and beyond. As a follow up to release, there are two planned expansion packs to add more content at a later date as well.

Hitman 2 Announced

Hitman 2 is confirmed ahead Of E3 2018. New Sniper Assassin co-op game revealed with distinct gameplay experience.

Following WB Games' teasing of soon to be revealed big-game title during E3 2018, a logo of Hitman 2 showed up on their official website. Although it was pretty clear what the logo was for, they still kept on denying for some reason and removed the logo from their site to stop further rumors. By then, the damage has been done and people know about it already. During a special live-stream event, they have revealed the first official trailer for the game, which finally clears out all confusion.

Hitman 2 Announced

Below is the brand-new trailer for Hitman 2, a sequel to 2016's critically acclaimed Hitman game as Agent 47 returns.




The game is not the actual second title from original series but is a direct sequel to 2016's Hitman, which was an episodic game from developer IO Interactive and publisher Square Enix. Despite having a different play style in previous project, the studio will venture to a new direction this time now that they have teamed up with WB Games. They will release the whole game at once for this one and probably continue the practice as long as they are working together.

However, moving on from fetching story through live content does not mean they are done with DLC releases. With time, post-launch additional downloadable contents will fill in for sure. Also, there are six different locations players get to explore like a racetrack rally or luxurious mansions to take out high value targets. Maps and missions in the sequel will be very detailed in design as the developer stated that, environments and objects plays a crucial part if you can employ them properly.

Pre-Order to Access Sniper Assassin

Hitman 2 is bringing back co-op mode Sniper Assassin to work along with your friends online or completely go solo in a single player to partake in various missions. If you pre-order Standard, Silver, Gold or Collector's edition of the game right now, you can immediately get access to it. Playing this mode in advance is almost playing a demo of the main game at this point and also to point out that this is the very first time a Hitman game in whole franchise features a multiplayer mode.

Watch this second clip of how Sniper Assassin mode will be and take idea of how to improvise your biggest kills on the job.




November 13 marks the release date for Hitman 2 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but you can start your hunt for Shadow Client early from November 9, if you happen to have placed an order for either Gold or Collector's edition. We are guessing more specified details will be dropped at E3 2018 press conference shortly. Shifting in gameplay and in overall will obviously set it apart and possibly will make it successful as well.
