The first Elusive Target for Hitman 2 is now here and it looks like they are starting strong with Sean Bean bringing his talents to The Undying. That would be the name of the target and all based on the character's ability to fake his own death and make other contract killers think he has been taken out. Seems about right when it is all set up by IO Interactive, but that is how it is going. It does not look like this will be the same way that the celebrity Elusive Targets were in the last Hitman, thankfully depending on your feelings, but it is something to know and look forward to shortly after November 13th when the game hits the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
As of right now this Elusive Target will be hitting Hitman 2 on November 20th and free as they were before. It also looks like there is a way to unlock some extras for this contract and the game in general with this announcement. As you will see in the video below, we will be able to vote on specific unlocks to come with the target/game based on what Mr. Bean talks about in this live action trailer. You can head over to the Hitman 2 website to make the vote as well and hopefully get the gear you are looking for in the game. I am sure they will all be in there in general. I just think this will be something to get it all earlier than normal.
Hitman 2 — Sean Bean Elusive Target #1
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today announced that international actor Sean Bean will star in the first Elusive Target mission for the Hitman 2 video game. Bean will take on the role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin. Notoriously known as “The Undying”, Faba’s reputation as a master of faking his own death is second to none, ultimately causing the International Contract Agency (ICA) to put an imposing bounty on his head.
The first Elusive Target mission, entitled The Undying, is scheduled to release on 20th November, one week after Hitman 2 launches on 13th November, and will run for 10 days. Once the mission is available, players must stop Mark Faba before he can utilize his expert surveillance, infiltration, and demolition skills to complete a contract at the Global Innovation Race event in Miami, and if anyone can take down Faba for the last time, it’s Agent 47.
In Hitman 2, Elusive Targets are unique, high-stakes contracts that are only available for a limited time. These missions are free for all players, allowing one chance to assassinate the target and if not successfully completed, the contract cannot be retried. The Undying Elusive Target is first of many post-launch, free live content updates and missions that players will be able to enjoy in Hitman 2.
Are you ready to go take out Sean Bean in Hitman 2 now or will you be skipping Elusive Targets that early on in the release?
