Hitman 2 Competition Makes You A Target For Agent 47
With Hitman 2 releasing this November, Warner Bros. and IO Interactive are giving players the opportunity to get their name and likeness into the game by sniping people really well.
Hitman: Sniper Assassin is a standalone title with multiplayer components that follows the mobile game of a similar name fairly closely. From now until November, players with an IO Interactive account can play Sniper Assassin and compete for high scores. Those top three scorers will get their names and likenesses into future content of Hitman 2, though it's not clear if they're just NPCs or full-on targets.
Check out the trailer for the competition below.
Future Hitman 2 content seems to mean that, despite Hitman 2 releasing on a disc and not episodic like its predecessor, IO Interactive will probably be treating the game as a live title with new content and updates beyond the initial release. Hopefully that includes new levels and elusive targets, as well.
Hitman 2 releases on November 13 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
