Actor Sean Bean to Star in First Elusive Target Mission for Hitman 2
Seems that WB Interactive Entertainment, along with developer IO Interactive, was keeping a secret, but now that secret is out in the open. Actor Sean Bean will star in the first Elusive Target mission Hitman 2. 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.
The first Elusive Target mission, entitled The Undying, is scheduled to release on November 20, one week after Hitman 2 launches on November 13, and will run for 10 days. Once the mission is available, players must stop Mark Faba before he can utilize 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 the last time, it’s Agent 47.
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 mission is the first of many post-launch, free live content updates that players will be able to enjoy in Hitman 2.
