The sequel to one of the best games of 2016 is here with Hitman 2.

Hitman 2 is obviously not the second entry in the series, but it may be its most impressive yet. Hitman 2 builds on everything players loved about the 2016 game and expands upon much.

The sequel features improved AI, better minimap, better shooting mechanics, more stealth opportunities with security camera grids, and the return of fan-favourite Elusive Targets and live events. Hitman 2 includes six all-new locations, but more impressively, owners of the 2016 game will get access to all Hitman Season 1 locations in Hitman 2.

New versions of these maps will be visually enhanced, and include support for all the engine changes and mechanics improvements made for the sequel.

Hitman 2’s launch package is also full of content, with the co-op Sniper Assassin mode, and the competitive Ghost Mode – which tasks two players with taking on the same objectives in real-time and scores their efforts.
