Hitman 2 is the latest thing that wants to kill Sean Bean


Poor ol Bean.

Hitman 2 is joining television and films to yet again kill actor Sean Bean.

Bean will play Mark ‘The Undying’ Faba in Hitman 2 as the game’s first Elusive Target. Faba’s a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin, “whose reputation as a master of faking his own death is second to none.”

Time to make it real, Agent 47.

Bean’s Elusive Contract will start on 20 November, one week after Hitman 2‘s launch on 13 November. The contract runs for ten full days.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Hitman 2,” said Bean. “It’s always exciting to take on a new role, and I look forward to seeing my character in action when the Elusive Target mission launches. Agent 47 will have his hands full!”

“We are very proud to partner with the talented Sean Bean on the first Elusive Target mission in Hitman 2,” said Hakan Abrak, Studio Head at IO Interactive, added. “Elusive Targets have become a distinguishing trait in Hitman games as part of the constant stream of free live content for all players to enjoy. This new mission starring Sean Bean is one of many features, modes and franchise firsts coming to Hitman 2, making the next chapter in our ever-expanding world of assassination a richer game for our passionate community and newcomers to the series.”

Hitman 2 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 13 November. Check out the game’s first Elusive Target trailer below.
