Warner Bros officially revealed Hitman 2 today. You can see the announcement trailer above, narrated by Sean "Ned Stark" Bean, featuring Agent 47 completing an assignment at a busy racetrack in Miami. Unlike the previous Hitman, this one won't be episodic. The entire game will be available on launch day, which is planned for November 13 of this year. There are plans for post-launch content, however.

Miami is one of six locations in Hitman 2—the others have not yet been revealed but we expect to learn more at E3, especially since Warner Bros will be guests on the PC Gaming Show.

Hitman 2 is already available on Steam for pre-orders, which gives you immediate access to Hitman: Sniper Assassin Mode, a solo and online co-op game. The trailer for this mode can be seen below.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
