Acclaimed actor Sean Bean will star in the first Elusive Target mission scheduled to take place in Hitman 2.
Hitman 2 publisher Warner Bros Interactive and developer Io Interactive said: “International actor Sean Bean will star in the first Elusive Target mission for the Hitman 2 video game. 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.”
Bean, whose CV includes roles in The Lord of The Rings films and Game of Thrones, said: “I’m thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Hitman 2 video game. 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, added: “We are very proud to partner with the talented Sean Bean on the first Elusive Target mission in Hitman 2. Elusive Targets have become a distinguishing trait in Hitman games as part of the constant stream of free live content for all players to enjoy. This new mission starring Sean Bean is one of many updates, features, modes and franchise firsts coming to Hitman 2.”
Hitman 2 is due for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 13 November. And the first Elusive Target mission, entitled The Undying, is due to unfold on 20 November. For more information, keep an eye on the Hitman 2 website.
