Hitman devs IÖ open new studiö in Malmö

IO Interactive, the Danish mob behind Hitman and Kane & Lynch (look, I still swear K&L2 is interesting), today announced they've opened a new studio in Malmö, Sweden. Given that there were ditched by former owners Square Enix and faced an uncertain future only 20 months ago, before going independent, this is a pleasing turnaround. I am glad they're apparently doing well enough to expand,…

Nic Rueben’s 5 best games of 2018

It’s well known that games are an awful mistake that should have never been unleashed on an unsuspecting humanity. That said, here’s five that hushed the howling primates that reside in my skull just long enough for me to consider them a worthwhile investment. Honorable mentions go to Cultist Simulator (For it’s alchemical harmony of theme and mechanics), Vermintide 2 (for being the second best…

Hitman 2’s holiday update lets us murder Home Alone’s Wet Bandits again

Home Alone's idiot burglars - or at least a pair of very similar bumbling thieves with legally distinct surnames - are on Santa's naughty list, and they're Agent 47's target in Hitman 2's first Christmas update. While largely a repeat of the previous game's Holiday Hoarders mission, set in a remixed Paris map, it's been polished up and remastered to Hitman 2 spec along with…

Podcast: Every game released in November reviewed very quickly*

 There are too many games. November is over, but it was a big month, and our giant collective digi-trough runneth over with shooters, stabbers and clickers. It’s repulsive and very wasteful, quite frankly. Thankfully, the RPS podcast (aka the Electronic Wireless Show) is here to snort up the good ‘uns and stamp all over the bad ‘uns. This week the pod squad are running…

Hitman 2 Miami walkthrough: how to assassinate Robert Knox and Sierra Knox, where to find disguises, VIP tickets and points of interest

As Will Smith would say, "Welcome to Miami". It's home to a race course that's home to high-octane racing, as well as the setting for the second mission in Hitman 2. This will be your first step into some of the more complex sandboxes. Miami is vast, essentially split into two sections: The loud and crowded racetrack and the quiet and empty marina. You're on…

Feature: Agent 47: The 2018 Tour

Hitman 2 guide: location guides, tips and tricks, challenge lists, silent assassin walkthroughs

Little else is quite so frighteningly intimidating, yet wonderfully rewarding, as stepping into a new Hitman game for the first time. While the first level is a fraction of the size of the others, these vast assassination playgrounds allow you to explore, poke around, and get up to all sorts of murderous mischief. It's the kind of game where discovery is half the fun. For…

Feature: Shoot the real me!

Hitman’s humour evolved because of 47’s penchant for disguises

In the best possible way, the Hitman series is ridiculous. Its protagonist, Agent 47, is the single most conspicuous person in any crowd. He’s big and bald and white with a bar code prominently tattooed to the back of his head, and not once does this fact deter him from his preferred method of infiltration: wearing a disguise. These aren’t disguises in the elaborate, Mission:…

Hitman 2 Santa Fortuna Silent Assassin walkthrough: best way to kill all the targets

Agent 47 gets given all sorts to assassinate on his murderous travels. Important figures in the public eye, elusive targets that hide from the world and now, three key members of the world’s largest drug smuggling operation. The Delgado cartel is one serious outfit, so bringing them down will require the deaths of their leader, Rico Delgado, their lead businesswoman, Andrea Martinez, and the cook,…

Video: Hitman 2 let me join the illustrious ranks of Sean Bean’s murderers

“For England, James?” “No, for XP.” 2000 XP, to be precise. That’s how much Sean Bean’s life is worth in the first of Hitman 2’s Elusive Targets. These are timed contracts that give you one shot at killing a special guest character - in this case, everyone’s favourite Yorkshire thespian (okay, it’s a toss up between Bean and fellow GoldenEye alumni Judi Dench). Bean, of…

Death of a Yorkshireman: Sean Bean vs Hitman is live now

Nu-Hitman's time-limited Elusive Targets are nothing new, but this latest is worth a spot of ballyhoo because a) it's the first one for the simply sublime Hitman 2 2 b) it's only bloody Boromir himself. Sean Bean's famed for meeting a great many sticky Hollywood ends, which the Elusive Target nicknamed 'The Undying' makes a huge theatrical wink towards. We already knew the other Mr…

Hitman 2 Isle of Sgàil Silent Assassin walkthrough: best ways to kill the targets

For the grand finale of Agent 47’s latest global assassination stint, the hairless hitman for hire takes his well-pressed suit to a secret patch of land in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. There, members of the world’s richest elite are holding an event in an elaborate ruined castle. They're gathering to discuss how they’re planning to influence society in their favour while also surviving…

Hitman 2 Mumbai Silent Assassin walkthrough: best ways to kill the targets

The busy streets of Mumbai are the perfect place for an assassin like Agent 47 to slip through unnoticed and eliminate his targets unseen. There’s three of them in this stage too – sleazy gangster Dawood Rangan, self-appointed Queen of the Slums Vanya Shah and mysterious gang lead The Maelstrom – so he’ll seriously have his work cut out for him.

Hitman 2 Whittleton Creek Silent Assassin walkthrough: best ways to kill the targets

The quiet suburbs of Whittleton Creek don’t seem like the sort of place an assassin would be required to visit. When an elderly member of a world-manipulating organisation for the elite and his over-zealous security detail live there, though, it’s just another classic job for Agent 47. This change of scenery means different tactics are required to pull off the perfect hit on Janus and…

Hitman 2 Miami Silent Assassin walkthrough: best way to kill the targets

Strolling into a heavily crowded racing event and assassinating two targets without being seen sounds like an impossible task – but it’s just another day in the death-dealing office for Agent 47. Pulling off the perfect hit, though, requires some serious planning. This guide will go over each step that you should take in order to get the Silent Assassin rank on the Miami mission.

Steam Charts: The Other Alice Edition

Hello! This week John is doing a super secret special mission (playing a video game) so I, one of the other Alices, have taken over the Steam Charts. I am afraid that I do not put as much time as John into constructing elegant jokes that are several layers deep, though, which means you might even be able to tell which games are charting. I…

Hitman 2 Hawke’s Bay walkthrough: how to assassinate Alma Reynard, where to find disguises, items and points of interest

Serving as the prologue and tutorial to Hitman 2, Hawke's Bay is a small and condensed level with minimal roadblocks. Your single target is relatively open to assassination attempt, with lots of room for error so you can get to grips with the role of a master assassin. In fact, the game is kind enough to let you explore the whole place without any distractions…

Hitman 2 Hawke’s Bay Silent Assassin walkthrough: best way to kill the target

Hawke’s Bay, the short tutorial mission that opens Hitman 2, is one of the game’s least complicated stages. As such it shouldn’t cause too much stress if you’re looking to get a Silent Assassin rating. Nevertheless, I’ve put together this quick Silent Assassin walkthrough for Hawke’s Bay if you’re looking for an optimal path to infiltrate the home of Alma Reynard and eliminate her.
