Sean Bean is set to take on a new role as the Undying, in the upcoming Hitman 2 game.
Sean 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.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the upcoming HITMAN 2 video game”, says Sean 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”. Hakan Abrak, Studio Head at IO Interactive states ‘This new mission starring Sean Bean is one of many updates, 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.’
The first Elusive Target mission, The Undying, will start in game on the November 20, one week after HITMAN 2 launches on November 13, and will run for 10 days. Once the mission is available, you the player, must stop Mark Faba before he can utilise 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 good, 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.
HITMAN 2 has introduced new ways to play the Sniper Assassin mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series for the first time, allowing two players to work together online to take down their targets. Sniper Assassin is available to play now as an early access bonus for consumers who pre-order the HITMAN 2. Players can also enter the HITMAN: Sniper Assassin Competition and put their marksman skills to the ultimate test for a chance to win the grand prize of getting their name and likeness included in future HITMAN 2 content.
