Agent 47 pays Sean Bean a visit in the latest live-action Hitman 2 trailer.

Sean Bean is the star of the live-action launch Hitman 2 launch trailer which takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the many ways to bump off your victims, from explosive rubber duckies, to a frying pan to the noggin.

Cooking up creative ways to kill targets is part of the fun of the series, and you can take a crack at applying your creativity to snuff out Sean Bean’s life in-game when you take on Hitman 2 Elusive Target, Mark Faba, a.k.a. The Undying.

Bean pops his clogs on-screen so frequently, it’s become a running joke, and the launch trailer doesn’t disappoint on that front either. We got a peek at Sean Bean in-game in a batch of screenshots last month, so you can take a gander at those as well.

Six locations have been revealed for the game, including Mumbai, New Zealand, and Vermont.

A 1v1 online competitive mode was also announced, that sees two players take on the role of Agent 47 in a race to take down the same target as their opponent as fast and as clean as possible.

Hitman 2 launches next week, November 13, on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
