Recently, Warner Bros. announced that Hitman 2 would launch on Xbox One and other platforms on November 13, 2018. In order to become the perfect assassin, you have to blend into the crowd, exploit the environment, and trick numerous opponents. Each decision has a consequence, so the more "invisible" you are, the smoother a mission will go.

A few days ago, Warner Bros. revealed a live-action launch trailer featuring Sean Bean. While the video was entertaining to say the least, gameplay trailers are still appreciated. Today, the publisher addressed those concerns and released a gameplay launch trailer. For some odd reason, the trailer is a square instead of a normal widescreen presentation. I suppose people love to get their news from Instagram and Twitter so you have to cater to those platforms.

In Hitman 2, Agent 47 embarks on a mission to hunt the elusive "Shadow Client" and unravel his militia once and for all. However, when he learns the hidden truth about his past, nothing will ever be the same. The game also introduces new ways to play with the "Sniper Assassin" mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series. It's available right now if you've preordered the game.

Hopefully Hitman 2 will be a worthy successor when it launches in a few weeks. Those who order the special editions can play it a few days early.
