Hitman 2’s new homing briefcase turns every game into It Follows

Thanks to a peppering of weird bugs over the years, Hitman has seen a few iterations of the killer briefcase come and go. Hitman 2's briefcase bug, often heralded in the form of long GIFs, turns your standard hitman briefcase into a homing missile that spins like a throwing star and bends gently around corners as it follows its prey. Now, developer IO Interactive have…

Hitman 2’s heat-seeking briefcase was a bug. Now, it’s a feature.

The most terrifying monsters are those you can't escape. Time, for one, will make dirt of us all. In the right hands, luggage can be just as deadly. With a lumbering momentum and clockwork rotation, the briefcase will find us all. Turning corners? Useless. Hiding behind a wall? A joke. Even burying it in the "resolved bugs" folder didn't keep it down for long -…

Hitman 2 gets cold toes in new Siberian sniper DLC mission

A wise Australian once said: "Sniping's a good job, mate." When playing a lethal game of dress-up gets stale, sometimes a good assassin just wants to put a bullet in someone's skull. When your job is murder, it must feel like the easy shift: Sit back, relax, point, click. Job's done, get that invoice sent and wait for the blood money to roll in. Agent…

Hitman 3 is coming, and IO have a new game in the works too

He's murdered in Miami. Punched lights out in Paris. Slashed throats in Sapienza. It's hard to imagine what chrome-dome killer Agent 47 does on holiday, what with all the globe-trotting he does as part of his nine-to-five. Does he have a nice wee sit in front of the telly, sipping a cuppa, watching Columbo? I like to think so. His handlers might be planning another…

Hitman 2 sends Agent 47 to do his banking in tomorrow’s DLC

When Ian Hitman isn't hitting men, he's apparently knitting his own cold-weather ensemble. At least, that's what he says in the trailer for the New York bank mission DLC coming to Hitman 2 tomorrow. I see no reason not to believe him, as he's very candid for a man of mystery and murder. The first full, regular mission coming to the stab-puzzle sandbox since launch,…

Hitman 2 goes sniping at Hantu Port in its first paid DLC level

Ian Hitman is at it again, this time doing a scenic bit of sunset sniping in Singapore. While not a full map, today's Hitman 2 Hantu Port Sniper Assassin mission (part of the Expansion Pass) feels like a nice warmup for the new maps to come, presenting a fresh challenge. Unlike the previous Himmelstein sniper mission, your targets won't immediately scurry for safety when threatened,…

Hitman 2 has us seeing double with its latest elusive target

The good news is that you won't have to travel far to find The Politician, the latest elusive target in Hitman 2, as she's holed up in the compact little tutorial (and demo) map of Hawke's Bay. Those shooting for a Silent Assassin rank will have to do a little sleuthing to figure out which is the real target, however, as she's there with a…

This 'Starter Pack' demo contains Hawke's Bay, a beach house level serving as the game's prologue and tutorial, with all its challenges and unlocks and such.

The Steam Awards show was short and to the point

While last year's Steam Awards were just a poll on the store, Valve are stepping up their game this year. Starting in a few minutes (at the time of writing) is the Steam Awards 2018 show, broadcasting live on the company's own Steam TV site. While I doubt there'll be anything as surprising as Epic's coup at the Game Awards before the holidays, there's still…

Hitman 2 takes a festive detour to back to Hokkaido today

Christmas may be over, but assassination is a dish best served cold, so it's back to Hokkaido we go for a fun seasonal bonus mission for Hitman 2. Today, Io Interactive rolled out a big update for their murder-sandbox, including some new gear for expansion pass holders. The big reason to be excited is the time-limited Snow Festival mission, set in Hitman 1's Hokkaido map.…

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,…

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…

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…

Bam! Bif! Pow! Hitman 2 out now

Ian Hitman is back once again with the kill behaviour in Hitman 2, which just launched. The sandbox stealth-o-murder simulator visits new lands, does new murders in new ways, and generally does that Hitman stuff well. Adam Cook said in our Hitman 2 review that "although IO's latest take on their murder-sim doesn't veer too far from the previous game's reinvention, it spends time re-enforcing…

Beanie baby is to play the murder simulator's first 'Elusive Targets', those hits who appear for a few days in limited-time murder event before vanishing into the ether. His fella is an assassin famed for faking his own death many times,…

Hitman 2 introducing 1v1 multiplayer Ghost Mode

The prospect of Hitman 2 has seemed to be 'more of the same good stuff, in new places' but with the game's launch now only one month and a day away, developers IO Interactive today announced that--surprise!--it'll introduce a 1v1 competitive multiplayer mode. Ghost Mode, as it's named, isn't about two hitmen trying to whack each other. Instead, they'll compete to off the same random…

Hollow Knight and Hitman headline the Humble Monthly

The Humble Monthly continues to impress - today's $12 subscription bundle deal is massive souls-inspired Metroidvania Hollow Knight, murder-sim Hitman and zombie survival sandbox 7 Days To Die. While the third of those doesn't quite fit, the first two are among the best in their genres, though Hitman is arguably a genre unto itself. That's not even mentioning the other handful of games to be…

Welcome to the jungle in Hitman 2 trailer

A new trailer for Hitman 2 shows Ian Hitman off on his hols in sweltering Colombia, creeping through the rainforest to murder fellas out S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in the gas masks and ponchos and all. What exactly these tropical cosplayers have done to deserve murder is a mystery we cannot begin to guess at, but the video shows that goodness me the forest really is lush and…

Hitman Season One missions remastered for Hitman 2

All the missions of Hitman's first season will be updated and playable within Hitman 2, IO Interactive announced today. Which is great. This will give the missions news ways to do murders, as well as a little extra visual fanciness and new modes. Which sounds pretty chuffing great. IO do specify that season one owners will get the revamped counterparts in Hitman 2 for free,…
