Hitman 2 Introduces New 1v1 Multiplayer Mode
Ghost mode in Hitman 2 will pit two assassins against one another with both in the pursuit of hunting down the same target.
Hitman 2 will already have quite a bit of content when it launches next month, but today, a new multiplayer game mode was revealed to also be included.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive this morning announced Ghost mode, a 1v1 multiplayer offering that will see two assassins pursuing the same target on a map. The targets will be chosen at random and once one player eliminates them, a new target on the map will appear. The first player to eliminate five of these targets wins the matchup.
It’s also worth noting that you can’t just run in and shoot your target in the face to achieve points. In Hitman fashion, you’ll have to remain hidden in order for your kill to count. All in all, this seems like a pretty novel idea and while it might not be a vital component of Hitman 2, it sounds like a ton of fun to play.
There’s a new trailer attached below which shows a bit of gameplay footage from Ghost mode and just how it will work. Hitman 2 is scheduled to launch on November 13 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
