'Hitman 2' Announces 1st Expansion Pass Location

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today released a new trailer showcasing the first Expansion Pass location coming to Hitman 2, entitled ‘New York.’ Available tomorrow (25th June) for all Expansion Pass and Expansion Pack 1 owners, the New York location will include the brand-new ‘Golden Handshake’ campaign mission, along with contracts mode for the mission, new challenges, unlocks, achievements and more. New York will also include its own Mastery Progression system, and each level of location mastery reached will unlock either a new starting point, agency pickup, tool or weapon for your inventory, which can all be carried over to other locations and missions.

Hitman 2 is the follow-up to the internationally acclaimed video game, Hitman. Featuring entirely new hyper-detailed sandbox locations full of living, breathing environments to explore, Hitman 2 offers players the freedom to plan the ultimate assassination utilising an assortment of tools, weapons, disguises and a variety of stealth techniques to creatively trigger their own unique chain of events.

Hitman 2 introduces new ways to play with 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. HITMAN™ 2 also features a unique and brand-new take on 1-versus-1 multiplayer competition with Ghost Mode. Players can put their assassination skills to the ultimate test as they compete against each other online, both as Agent 47, to assassinate the most targets faster and cleaner than their opponent, while utilising weapons, items, outfits and ghost crate supply drops to help accomplish the overall mission.

Hitman 2 is available now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and PC.
