'Hitman 2' (ALL) Reveals 1-Versus-1 Competitive Ghost Multiplayer Mode - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 12, 2018 @ 9:53 a.m. PDT

Hitman 2 will see players perform contract hits on powerful, high-profile targets in exotic locations around the world.

Featuring entirely new hyper-detailed sandboxes full of living, breathing environments to explore, Hitman 2 offers players the freedom to plan the ultimate assassination utilizing an assortment of tools, weapons, disguises and a variety of stealth techniques to creatively trigger their own unique chain of events.

Hitman 2 takes players on a global adventure across a mix of bustling international locations, including a vibrant Miami setting with the colorful ambience of an in-progress motorsport race bringing a new backdrop to the series. From sun-drenched streets to dark and dangerous rainforests, each intricate location provides multiple paths to discover and unparalleled game depth.

Continuing the ultimate spy thriller story, Hitman 2 allows players to take on the role of the masterful Agent 47 and embark on a mission to hunt the elusive Shadow Client and unravel his militia once and for all. However, when 47 learns the hidden truth about his past, nothing will ever be the same.

Hitman 2 introduces new ways to play with the Sniper Assassin mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series for the first time, allowing two players to work together online to take down their targets. Sniper Assassin can also be enjoyed in a single player mode for those who want to play as Agent 47.


Ghost Mode is a unique and brand-new take on 1-versus-1 online competition, putting players’ assassination skills to the ultimate test.

Agent 47 is the world’s deadliest assassin, and the only person who can match him in skill, stealth and execution is… himself. Therefore, Ghost Mode allows two players to compete against each other online, both as Agent 47, to assassinate the most targets in a match. At the start of each round, both players begin side-by-side and must race to take out the same targets faster and cleaner than their opponent, while utilizing weapons, items, outfits and ghost crate supply drops along the way to help accomplish the overall mission.

The unique twist with Ghost Mode in Hitman 2 is that players will simultaneously hunt targets while in the same location and can see a “ghost” version of their rival gamer to track progress against their own, but they exist in separate realities unaffected by the actions of their adversary. In Ghost Mode, the player who can outsmart, outplay and outkill their opponent by eliminating five targets first, will declare victory.

Please note, Ghost Mode will be available for the Miami location when Hitman 2 launches on November 13. Ghost Mode will subsequently become available for additional Hitman 2 locations, as well as other World of Assassination locations, post-launch.

 

Sniper Assassin is available to play now as an early access bonus for consumers who pre-order the Hitman 2 Standard, Silver, Gold or Collector’s Edition.

As an additional pre-order bonus, full game early access will be available for Gold or Collector’s Edition owners four days before release.

Hitman 2 will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC beginning November 13, 2018.
