Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive announced that Sean Bean will be joining the cast of Hitman 2 in the first Elusive Target mission. He will play Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin notoriously known as “The Undying” because of his reputation of faking his own death.
In Hitman 2, Elusive Targets are unique contracts only available for a limited time. They will be free for all players and will allow them one chance to assassinate the target. If not successfully completed, the contract cannot be retired.
“We’re very excited to partner with the talented Sean Bean on the first Elusive Target mission in HITMAN 2,” said Hakan Abrak, Studio Head, IO Interactive. “Elusive Targets have become a distinguishing trait in Hitman games as part of the constant stream of free live content for all players to enjoy. This new mission starring Sean Bean is one of many updates, features, modes and franchise firsts coming to HITMAN 2, making the next chapter in our ever-expanding world of assassination a richer game for our passionate community and newcomers to the series.”
The Undying will be the first of many of these free live content updates and will be released on November 20th, 2018 for 10 days. This is just a week after Hitman 2 is released on November 13th, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more information, visit the official website. Last week, we got out hands on the new multiplayer feature for the game, Ghost Mode. Check out the hands-on preview here.
