Hitman 2

Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive and developer IO Interactive have released the live-action launch trailer for Hitman 2 featuring Sean Bean, who stars in the first of the game’s Elusive Target missions.

Here is an overview of the trailer, via Warner Bros. Interactive:

In the new video, Bean plays the role of Mark Faba, an in-game character who will be featured in the upcoming Elusive Target mission on November 20, just one week after Hitman 2 launches on November 13. As Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin, Bean discusses the importance of creativity and improvisation to a true assassin, while showcasing a variety of unassuming items that can be utilized as deadly weapons in Hitman 2. From rubber duck explosives and transistor radios to kitchenware and flamingo costumes, the world truly is your weapon. And no one knows this better than the masterful Agent 47, who makes an inconspicuous appearance towards the end of the video with a deadly surprise for Mr. Faba.

IO Interactive also published a handy infographic detailing the game’s launch content.

Hitman 2 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 13.
