New 1v1 Competitive Multiplayer Announced for Hitman 2
In something of a surprise move, WB Interactive Entertainment has announced what fans of the Hitman frnachise did not see coming, and that is a new competitive multiplayer mode for Hitman 2.
Ghost Mode allows two players to compete against each other online, both as Agent 47, to assassinate the most targets in a match. At the start of each round, both players begin side-by-side and must race to take out the same targets faster and cleaner than their opponent, while utilizing weapons, items, outfits and ghost crate supply drops along the way to help accomplish the overall mission.
The unique twist with Ghost Mode is that players will simultaneously hunt targets while in the same location and can see a “ghost” version of their rival gamer to track progress against their own, but they exist in separate realities unaffected by the actions of their adversary. In Ghost Mode, the player who can outsmart, outplay and outkill their opponent by eliminating five targets first, will declare victory.
