For the first time ever the game will be offered on the day of the release as a complete game not unveiled in episodes. Also, for the first time in the history of the franchise, a multiplayer mode will be available. Hitman 2 was developed by IO Interactive, publisher is Warner Bros and Interactive Entertainment.This will be the first Hitman game offered by Warner Bros, after Square Enix parted ways with developers of the series. Do not confuse this video game with Hitman 2: Silent Assassin that was released back in 2002 as the second title in the series.Are You Ready for the Sequel?In 2016 Agent 47, the main character of Hitman series, was fulfilling his contracts for International Contract Agency. At first they all seem unrelated, then it turned out the shadow client was standing behind attacks on a secretive organization Providence.His aim was to make ICA look culpable. Agent 47 managed to uncover the shadow client’s plan and prove Providence his role in attacks. The sequel starts exactly where the previous game left us. Agent 47 is still on the hunt for the shadow client as he plans to disassemble his forces and weapons.Additionally, he is looking for the truth about his past life and this time he might finally managed to crack it down. The third person perspective game will take the player through six different locations as the bald sniper hunts down the victim. Some of locations include sunny, party spot Miami, tropical forests or a racing circuit.During his journey he has missions to take down various targets. What is worth to notice is that this time the player gets the full package on the release date. The previous game, released in 2016, was episodic in nature. Each episode was unveiled at specific time with a given contract and mission to accomplish.It means that players had to wait months to complete the whole season. This time all missions are available from the first day, which is a great news for all the impatient fans of the series. Majority of gameplay and mechanics stayed the same as in the previous Hitman, but the content is much richer and improved.About the Game – Storyline and GameplayAgent 47’s main mission in Hitman is to find the shadow client and take him down. He also has to demolished his militia so he is longer a threat. As a side quest, the barcoded, bald, mysterious assassin and sniper is about to finally uncover the truth about his past.Hitman 2 comes with much more elaborate sandbox levels and a brand new mode called Sniper Assassin, that allows co-op. The game covers six maps located all over the world. Each locations has variety of activities and quests both connected to main task and side one.Contracts from the Escalation mode will be at hand, as well as challenges prepared by fans of the series and so-called elusive targets. During his quests in various locations, Agent can use different techniques to take down targets.He can fight them in open combats or stealth and shoot them down from long range. Those more subtle methods requiring stealth and discreet motions will be rewarded the most. As the professional assassin, the Agent’s task is not only to kill but also to stay undercover. He might use disguise, guns with damper, stealth methods, poisons, faking accidents to cover murders and more.Changes to monitoring system should make it easier to sneak in close to the target unnoticed. Now also those unsupervised areas will be lit up, so the player can clearly see them and avoid being recorded. Another new thing to the game are gadgets, that might made NPCs lose consciousness. A briefcase for concealing, carrying huge riffles makes its comeback to the game.Co-op Multiplayer ModeFor the first time ever, players will have the opportunity to play in co-op mode in Hitman! The Sniper Assassin mode is available straight away to all those who pre-purchase the game. Upon the game release, the mode will come together with each copy of the game.How does the co-op mode work?

The murders must be random, highly simplified, with no elaborate tortures, no exotic locations, no manipulated crime scenes or messages left behind for the cops and media. Every murder must occur inside the residence of the murder victim. (The words of the infamous Chatsworth Killer) From 2003 to 2006, a series of 14 brutal murders summoned the deepest fears in the hearts of everyone living in California's San Fernando Valley. The killer behind the murders would become known only when he turned himself in to authorities in 2006, confessing to the murders and declaring he had "proof" that "emptiness" and "informational symmetry" made random crime impossible to prevent in modern-day society. While the subsequent investigation and trial that led to the Chatsworth Killer's life imprisonment have been well documented, the man-monster himself has remained silent - until now. With elaborate legal agreements in place to ensure the killer cannot profit from the resulting book, writer-philosopher Emericus Durden undertook a series of interviews with the man over several months in 2010. The result is Two Heads Equal Two Hands, the first and only account by the serial killer himself of what he did and why he did it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aaron Clawitter.
